This course is aimed at graduates with an honours degree or relevant professional experience who want to develop their understanding and skills as structural engineers.
The course meets the requirements for Further Learning for a Chartered Engineer (CEng) for candidates who have already acquired an Accredited CEng (Partial) BEng (Hons) or an Accredited Eng (Full) BEng/BSc (Hons) undergraduate first degree. See www.jbm.org.uk for further information.
The Dissertation module provides you with the opportunity exercise what you have learned in a research (student driven) environment. This is carried out under the direction of an academic supervisor and may involve a range of high-level coordinated academic and practical work.
The JBM require that the three core threads of Design, Health and Safety, and Sustainability are addressed throughout the programme, and these feature in all of the aforementioned modules.
For full time mode, each module will require two days of contact per week, with an additional 3 days of self study. With 2 modules per semester this equates to a full week of study. The taught course completes in June, with the dissertation phase requiring 3 months up to the end of September.
Part-Time mode comprises 1 module per semester, thereby allowing day release for those in employment. In the first year the modules Introduction to Design in semester 1 and Further Design in semester 2 are studied, and in year 2, Seismic Engineering &FE in semester 1 and Bridge Engineering in semester 2 are studied. The Third year comprises the dissertation for which up to 1 year is allocated.
