The Master of Engineering Structures provides a unique opportunity for both graduate and experienced civil and structural engineers to learn from internationally recognised experts in the field of structural engineering.
You will further your knowledge in the advanced design of engineering structures, focussing on the design of ecologically sustainable buildings and the design of resilient structures to counter conditions, such as earthquake, collision, high wind, blast and fire.
You will gain a thorough understanding of structural systems, conceptual design and advanced analysis techniques and have access to a dynamic mix of guest and local seminar presentations on leading research topics in this field.
Career opportunities exist in a variety of roles related to the design of structures, their longevity, and their ability to withstand extreme conditions, such as earthquake, high winds, explosions, fire and other high impact loads. In addition to designing, building and
assessing new structures, you may be involved in the risk assessment of existing structures. Your advanced knowledge of the theory and practice of structural engineering will be an asset in industry, enhancing your technical, management and leadership skills. You will find employment with national and global companies such as Arup, AECOM, Bonacci Group, Hyder Consulting, Cardno and Beca.
