Master of Science in Structural Engineering

Master of Science in Structural Engineering


The programme is intended to deliver specialised engineers in Structural Engineering who will strengthen the design and research capacity in the universities, industry and other institutions by providing advanced theoretical and practical training for design and research in these specialised branches of Civil and Structural Engineering. Stimulate applied and theoretical research into regional problems in Structural Engineering.
