Structural Engineering and Materials
Associate Professor and Convenor: Sebastian Skatulla, Dipl-Ing Karlsruhe PhD Adelaide
The programme offers high level training in structural design, structural analysis and structural materials by providing sound theoretical background and encouraging critical and innovative thinking. Students benefit from international level expertise in concrete technology, concrete durability, structural performance and design, computational mechanics and finite element analysis. The programme is supported by excellent laboratory and computing facilities and draws a lot from cutting edge research outputs.
All programmes can be completed in two years full-time or over a maximum period of five years on a part-time basis.
A candidate for the Postgraduate Diploma is required to complete a minimum of 120 credits. A candidate for the MEng in Structural Engineering is required to complete 120 credits coursework and a 60 credit minor dissertation. A candidate for the MSc is required to complete prescribed courses of a minimum value of 60 credits and a 120 credit research dissertation [EM024].
