Decision making at a high level is often demanded by the industry, and here you will learn the techniques and unlock the confidence to use your initiative, communicate conclusions and solutions and tackle often-unpredictable scenarios.
This Structural Engineering Masters programme from University of Birmingham offers the opportunity to widen knowledge in the area of Structural Engineering by including structural engineering practice, wind engineering, structural behaviour (both static and seismic), geotechnical engineering and industrial research topics.
The course has been devised to meet the demands of both the UK and overseas engineering and construction industries. It offers advanced training to engineers aspiring to higher or middle management in public and private sector management. This opens up a wide range of career opportunities, as many of the techniques are applicable both within and outside the civil engineering design and construction industry.
You can transfer from the Postgraduate Diploma to the MSc programme, upon completion of the Diploma, provided you satisfy the MSc requirements.

“The transition from undergrad to postgrad can be a big step up in terms of workload and what is expected of you, but there is so much support available to you as a postgrad student, from academic writing support (if you’ve been out of education for a few years or just want a bit of extra help) to mental health and wellbeing services. The careers support is fantastic – the uni puts on employer fairs throughout the year and you have access to one on one support from the Careers Network team, who can help you develop your skills ready for your next step!”

Graduating from this programme
- You will be able to deal with complex Structural Engineering issues, making sound judgements in the absence of complete information, and will be able to communicate your conclusions clearly to specialist and non-specialist audiences.
- You will be self-motivating and able to act autonomously and will have the qualities and transferable skills necessary to exercise initiative and personal responsibility, to make decisions in complex and unpredictable situations, and to have the independent learning ability required for the continuing professional development and the civil/structural engineering practice.
- You will display a high level of numeracy and display skills in problem solving, research, team working, and communication and information technology, which will equip you for a successful career outside as well as within the construction industry.
- Your MSc counts towards achieving Chartered Engineer accreditation.
