The entry qualification documents are accepted in the following languages: English.
Often you can get a suitable transcript from your school. If this is not the case, you will need official translations along with verified copies of the original.
IELTS: 6.5 with at least 6.0 in each component
At least 2 reference(s) must be provided.
These should be supplied and signed by academic staff at institutions where you have studied previously. They must be presented on the official letter-headed paper of the relevant institution. If you have been out of education for the last two years, you can send one academic reference plus one from your current employer if you wish.
This intensive course is a blend of lectures, lab work, site visits and design projects.
You’ll learn the analytical and design skills needed to create successful structures in challenging environments.
The course tutors are researchers who work closely with industry to push the boundaries of structural design. Sheffield has the largest academic research centre for concrete in the UK so you’ll also benefit from some great facilities.
Our expertise is world-class. We cover cement chemistry, aggregate science, binder technology, concrete durability, alternative concrete materials, structural performance and design, earthquake and nuclear reactor design and finite element analysis.
Over the summer, you’ll work on your own research dissertation. This might include lab work, field studies, modelling or all three. Some students work with an industry partner. Others link their dissertation to a research project in the department.
All our structures-based courses are accredited by The Institution of Civil Engineers, Institution of Structural Engineers, Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation, and Institute of Highway Engineers as satisfying part 2 academic base requirements for a Chartered Engineer under UK-SPEC.
