The Faculty offers an MSc programme in Structural Engineering with a duration of 1.5 years. The MSc programme has four specializations:
- Specialization in Numerical Modelling,
- Specialization in Structures,
- Specialization in Geotechnics and Geology.
- Specialisation in Structures in Nuclear Power Plants
Specialization in Numerical Modelling provides advanced knowledge of structural analysis using contemporary computer techniques, including the theoretical background of the methods. Specialization in Structures provides thorough knowledge in structural design, skills enabling to carry out independent project coordination and to execute special design, construction and development procedures. The main goal of the Specialization in Geotechnics and Geology is to provide enhanced knowledge and skills in the field of engineering geology, geotechnics modelling, underground structures and
foundations. These specializations are useful for research oriented students pursuing a doctoral degree in a PhD programme, as well as for the next generation of practicing leading engineers, who will solve special structural problems and innovate the construction procedures.
The faculty introduces the Specialisation in Structures in Nuclear Power Plants in the Msc in Structural Engineering program from 2020 September. The goal of the specialisation is to train civil engineers having high level knowledge and skills in the area of designing and constructing civil engineering structures in nuclear power plants. Besides courses in the fields of construction materials, geotechnics, building constructions, the students study nuclear safety, new generation nuclear reactor technics and specific structural engineering aspects, such as seismic design, extreme action on structures and containment building structures. Students accomplishing this specialisation will able to understand and apply the methods and techniques required in designing and constructing structures in nuclear power plants, and can effectively collaborate with the relevant engineering fields. Minimum and maximum number on the specialisation: min 10 – max 20
