Civil Engineering and Structural Engineering have been considered in the past two distinct disciplines in the field of engineering involved in the analysis, evaluation, design construction and preservation of elements, and structural engineering was considering as an area of specialization of Civil Engineering.
Structural Engineering was usually provided by the universities as both a subject under Civil Engineering and a specialization that resulted in a Master's degree or a Doctorate.
The topics provided in Structural Engineering courses include construction industry issues associated with soil-structure engineering, structural dynamics and earthquake engineering and advanced structural design: an important aspect related these courses is related to the utilization of analytical structural analysis and numerical analysis to solve engineering problems also using the finite element method (FEM) and related software packages.
The lessons, whose key feature is the multi-disciplinarity, may be followed completely online (through our e-learning platform and with the assistance of qualified professors/tutors) or blended, in collaboration with the universities and the courses are also recognized by personnel/certification bodies: the university, designated in agreement with the candidate, will issue the title upon completion of the course of study.
Structural engineers are primarily concerned with designing and constructing buildings and structures that are safe and capable of withstanding the elements to which they will be exposed, as well as improving the structural integrity of existing buildings.
Our programs (MSc and Doctorate) in Structural Engineering covers topics related to advanced structural analysis and design, structural computing simulation, design of welded structures, and also offering units linked with steel, concrete, timber and other construction materials. It will also provide candidates with knowledge to design structures under dynamic conditions.
To provide the latest specialist knowledge and technical competence, all design-related modules are taught in accordance with the new structural Eurocodes.
As well as developing the analytical and problem-solving skills, tuition covers project planning and contract management.
The programs are also underpinned by research into areas such as advanced theory in Finite Element Method (with linear and nonlinear structural simulation), advanced structural analysis and design of welded structures.
Teaching techniques include on-line learning, workshops, tutorials, laboratory sessions, field trips and lectures: at the end of the course, the canditates will either conduct a structural research project by making use of FEA.
Admission requirements established by the university to Master's level program must be a Bachelor's/Master’s degree in Civil/Mechanical Engineering, issued by an institution approved by an appropriately accredited agency internationally recognized or an educational institution approved by an equivalent authority.
The number of courses to be attended for the Master's Degree beyond the Bachelor's Degree/Master’s degree are different according to the area of study (subjects as, for example, individual research project, group project for the on-site courses, in relation to the course chosen, can be added).
The universities may accept a maximum of 6 courses in transfer towards the Master's degree for Bachelor’s courses, completed at an institution approved by an appropriately accredited agency internationally recognized or an educational institution approved by an equivalent authority.
Admission requirements established by the university to Doctorate level programs must be a Master’s degree in Civil Engineering, issued by an institution approved by an appropriately accredited agency internationally recognized or an educational institution approved by an equivalent authority.
The number of courses to be attended for the Doctorate are different according to the area of research (they may be based on an extensive research work related to the discovery or introduction of findings due to extensive research works in a particular area).
The recognition of prior learning (RPL) for the programs for our Master's level program is based on a combination of completion of specific Bachelor's/Master’s degree programs, list of learning and training activities attended, general and technical knowledge, work experience related and coherent to the course chosen.
For information such as, for example, registration procedures, admission requirements, recognition of university credits, please contact us at our email address, even to know the schedule of classroom courses.
The candidate must submit in advance, together with the information request, the CV in order to verify if there are the requirements for registration.
In addition, candidates who had gained experience arising from previous studies, also not concluded, and professional activities, can ask for evaluation of university credits.
Any request or communication must be forwarded directly to our email address.
Once this phase is complete, the program will be prepared, as well as the related costs and application forms (the form of the university and the general one of the services of International Studies Ltd), which will then be transmitted to the candidate.
Distance training offers the opportunity to follow lessons easily from home with one’s own times and methods in addition to quality teaching services and support of a professor/tutor.
