As part of this program you'll collaborate on practical projects and research-based learning in areas of urban, commercial and civil infrastructure, specialising in:
- design of future urban infrastructure
- practice of advanced structural assessment, refurbishment and retrofitting existing structures
- structural failures, forensics engineering and lessons learned
- dynamic response of structures and post-elastic performance under extreme loading environments
- systems engineering for structural engineers and asset managers to analyse complex systems
- ethics, liability and law
You'll extend your views of the role of future structural engineers in designing, maintaining and assessing resilient and sustainable urban infrastructure.
You will also have the opportunity to conduct an industry-relevant and industry-supported research project to specialise in one of the above areas of your choice.
Within the program you will complete the following core courses:
- Advanced Structural Assessment
- You will be introduced to the techniques and processes adopted in assessment of existing structures covering structural inspections, estimation of loads, understanding current state of material and structural properties using non-destructive techniques, establishing a limit state for analysis and advanced computational techniques for assessment of structural robustness and resilience.
- Research Methods
- This course represents the initiation phase of a research project. You will plan your project, conduct a critical review of relevant published material and undertake sufficient work to produce some initial findings.
- Forensic Engineering (Structural)
- Using major structural failures as case studies and tools for learning, this course will introduce you to the life cycle of creation and operation of major civil structures with a focus on elements that have the potential to cause a catastrophe.
- Research Project
- This course involves a significant research project sourced from industry and addressing a major structural forensics-related research question. The project will have an industry consultant as a co-supervisor.
You will complete the following two courses:
- Structural Refurbishment and Retrofitting
- Vibration and Dynamic Response of Structures
You will also complete one from the following:
- Ethics and Legal Studies
- Design of Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat
- Systems Engineering for Civil Engineers
