Structural Engineering, Master Programme, 60 credits
Level: Second Level
Department: Faculty of Engineering and Technology
“Doing things right and doing the right things". Stresses, deformation and vibrations – how do building structures react in different situations? Analyze, calculate and learn scientific methods. A technical education on advanced level is a good base for your future success.
Students following this master programme will be able to handle a wide range of problems within advanced structural engineering and design, using computational tools such as the finite element method. The programme has a focuses on wood building technology and design, *omit another important research area at Linnaeus University in which research is carried out in close cooperation with the industry. In addition to a thorough theoretical basis, applied projects concerning the development of new products and technology is included in the programme. Something very advantageous is the fact that there is a series of interesting wood building projects *omit going on in the city of Växjö, and *omit projects that will continue for several years to come.
The programme contains the courses: Analysis of Structures, The Finite Element Method, Timber based Building Systems, Multivariate Calculus and Vector Calculus, Structural Dynamics, Scientific Methodology and Planning and Degree Project/Thesis.
The University has exchange programs with a large number of universities around the world. Students from these, as well as free movers, are welcome to apply for this program. All the education in the programme is conducted in English.
The programme prepares students for work in industry, within a growing wood building branch or elsewhere in the building industry where skills in structural design and analysis are required, but it also prepares for research studies for PhD exams.
After one year of successful study, students will get a Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Civil Engineering.
