This program explores ways of dealing with complex structural engineering challenges.
It is specially designed to up skill your existing structural engineering capabilities by specialising in emerging advanced methods of structural materials and design practices. You’ll also aquire expertise in structural forensics and methods of extending the life expectancy of existing structures.
Over the past 50 years, structural engineering has focused on creating new landmark structures including bridges, buildings, dams, seaports and tunnels. However, during the past decade, a need has emerged to manage existing infrastructure, predict and extend the life expectancy of structures and minimise its risk of failure and associated catastrophes.
This program addresses this gap in knowledge and will open up new career opportunities to you, as well as provide professional development and career stability by specialising your structural engineering qualification.
International student visa holders can only study full-time.
RMIT offers a variety of learning and teaching approaches including lectures, seminars, workshops, presentations, group discussions and syndicate work.
You will have access to online resources through the myRMIT student portal.
Ongoing assessment throughout the semester includes examinations, essays, reports, oral classes, presentations, group projects, research projects, laboratory projects and practical assignments.
This program blends lectures and workshop sessions, online forums and team-based activities.
Lectures and tutorials are typically delivered in the evening.
RMIT University is committed to providing you with an education that strongly links formal learning with professional or vocational practice.
You'll do a structured activity of work-integrated learning, including a final research thesis based on industry-relevant research.
After completing this specialist Master program you’ll be highly sought after by structural engineering consultants, local councils, road authorities, civil infrastructure design consultants, asset managers, engineering consultants and assets managers in the mining industry.
Professional recognition and accreditation
Graduates will meet the requirements for Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) Level 9.
