Structural engineering is the discipline responsible for the design (and construction) of elegant, stable and durable structures including tall buildings, long-span bridges and Olympic sports stadiums. These are among the most breathtaking and uplifting constructions realised by humankind. This new degree is the first of its kind to be offered in London. It responds to the demand for motivated, creative individuals who wish to take full advantage of their interest in science and mathematics to arrive at elegant designs that link optimisation with a beauty of architectural form. Our approach rewards critical thinking and curiosity. Students are shown how to arrive at efficient solutions where the structure can withstand the stresses and displacements resulting from all plausible static and dynamic loads (be they gravitational, seismic, wind, thermal or impact).
