Upon successful completion of this programme the graduate will be able to demonstrate... :
Knowledge - Breadth
An in-depth knowledge of areas of mathematics, science, ICT, design, business and engineering practice relevant to the structural engineer.
Knowledge - Kind
The ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, ICT, design, business and engineering practice to the analysis and solution of complex problems in structural engineering.
Skill - Range
The ability to use modelling and analytical techniques, skills and modern computer-based engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
Skill - Selectivity
The ability to design a system, component or process to meet specified needs, to design and conduct experiments and to analyse and interpret data.
Competence - Context
The ability to assume personal responsibility for the development and application of engineering science and knowledge, particularly in research, design and construction of civil and structural engineering works.
Competence - Role
The ability to work autonomously, in teams and in multi-disciplinary settings to give authoritative technical advice and to assume responsibility for the direction of important tasks in structural engineering. The ability to communicate effectively with the engineering community and with society at large.
Competence - Learning to Learn
The capacity to identify learning needs and to undertake continuous learning (including lifelong learning and continuing professional development), incorporating the ability to closely and continuously follow progress in structural engineering by consulting newly published works, assimilating such information and applying it independently.
Competence - Insight
An understanding of the wider social, political, business and economic context within which engineering operates and the need for high ethical standards in the practice of engineering, including the responsibilities of the engineering profession towards people and the environment.
