Develop your structural engineering skills and learn methods to deal with complex structural challenges.
The program is specially designed to up-skill your existing structural engineering capabilities, allowing you to specialise in emerging advanced methods of structural materials and design practices.
You’ll gain expertise in structural forensics and methods of extending the life expectancy of existing structures.
In the past 50 years, structural engineering has focused on creating new landmark structures including bridges, buildings, dams, seaports and tunnels.
However, a need has emerged to manage existing infrastructure, predict and extend the life expectancy of structures and minimise the risk of failure and associated catastrophes.
The program addresses this gap in knowledge and will open up new career opportunities. It also provides professional development and career stability, allowing you to specialise with an advanced structural engineering qualification.
RMIT University is ranked among the world’s top 100 universities in civil and structural engineering (2017 QS World University Rankings by Subject).
International student visa holders can only study full-time.
This program blends lectures and workshop sessions, online forums and team-based activities.
Lectures and tutorials are typically delivered in the evening.
You will have access to online resources through the myRMIT student portal.
RMIT offers a variety of learning and teaching approaches including lectures, seminars, workshops, presentations, group discussions and syndicate work.
Ongoing assessment throughout the semester includes examinations, essays, reports, oral classes, presentations, group projects, research projects, laboratory projects and practical assignments.
RMIT University is committed to providing you with an education that strongly links formal learning with professional practice.
You'll undertake an range of work-integrated learning activities, including a final research thesis based on industry-relevant research.
As buildings around the world continue to age, there will be increased demand for professionals with the skills to manage existing infrastructure, predict and extend the life expectancy of structures and minimise the risk of failure and associated catastrophes.
Graduates of this program may find employment with:
- structural engineering consultants
- local councils
- road authorities
- civil infrastructure design consultants
- asset managers
- engineering consultants
- assets managers in the mining industry
