Structural Engineering is essentially the science of anticipating how structures such as buildings and bridges will stay standing. Structural Engineers use maths, geometry and physics to make sure structures will cope with their shape, weight and materials as well as environmental factors like the weather and the ground they’re built on.
The College of Contract Management has developed a live online Structural Engineer courses in line with the Institution of Structural Engineers (IStrustE). We are the only UK provider of an Advanced Diploma in Structural Engineering. Above all, this award fully satisfies the educational requirements you need to become an Engineering Technician (EngTech) with the IStructE. The Advanced Diploma alone could land you a position in industry or you may wish to top up your qualification to a full degree. Whatever you choose, this qualification is your first step on the path to a rewarding career.
If you are interested in Structural Engineering but don’t have the right A-Levels or other qualifications to get straight into university, this could be a great option for you. This is a Level 5 qualification worth 240 credits. A-Levels are Level 3, thus many universities will accept this as an alternative. Meanwhile, some will even consider it as equal to one or two years of a degree course and allow you entry straight into the second or third year. This is dependent on the university so it is well worth doing some research if this is what you’d like to do.
This well-respected qualification is set at an intermediate, undergraduate level. It places academic theory within a practical context which will then prepare you for undergraduate study in the UK or at overseas university. You will receive Advanced Certificate in Year 1 and the Advanced Diploma at the end of Year 2.
