Overview In this programme, you will study how to design, evaluate, and analyse structural systems, with a special focus on Nuclear Power Plants. You will learn all the principles used for the design of buildings, bridges, special structures and in particular nuclear containment structures.The emphasis on nuclear structures is a response to the skill shortage reported by employers working in this sector. The UK has recently committed to a long-term nuclear new-build programme that is forecast to generate more than 40,000 jobs, yet little specialised training is available in this area. The proposed programme will therefore provide you with a degree that distinguishes you in the market. The programme is offered on a one-year full-time or two-years part time basis to allow you maximum flexibility and is supported by the Royal Academy of Engineering.Scholarships, bursaries and prizesThe School offers generous scholarships, bursaries and prizes for this course:UK/EU applicants - Engineering & Mathematics Scholarship of £2,000City University London Graduate Loyalty Discount of £2,500International Student Scholarships of £2,000Other scholarships, bursaries and prizes This degree is accredited as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for a Chartered Engineer (CEng) for candidates who have already acquired an Accredited CEng (Partial) BEng (Hons) or an Accredited IEng (Full) BEng/BSc (Hons) undergraduate first degree.

Teaching and Assessment


The course is taught by staff from theSchool of Mathematics, Computer Science & Engineeringwith contribution from industry experts, mainly in the form of lectures, but case studies and IT laboratory sessions and seminars are also used where appropriate.

Modules are shared between two ten-week teaching terms running from October to December and January to March. Although work for the MSc dissertation commences during the second term, most of the research work is carried out during the summer...
