MSc in Structural Integrity (Asset Reliability Management)

Subject field: Mechanical Engineering

NSIRC and Brunel University London have designed this world class MSc degree to support development of the next generation of structural integrity and reliability engineers.

Delivered at TWI in Cambridge, the home of NSIRC, this engineering course aims to develop MSc students into a highly sought after engineers.

The programme gives participants an in-depth knowledge in the theory, and the science and technology practice involved with structural integrity.

What is the focus of this MSc course...?

This masters degree examines detecting and dealing with defects in structures in order to prevent catastrophic failure. It also focuses on how to assess the implications of a particular defect.

Students will gain a sound understanding of stress analysis, how a structure carries loads, and different aspects relating to damage detection.


Access to £15m of equipment facilities

In addition to access to £15m of research specialised equipment through TWI Innovation Network, students will enjoy:

  • Dedicated teaching spaces
  • On‑site high performance computing facility to run complex numerical simulation to support their experimental work
  • Sports facilities
  • Access to all buildings at Brunel University London campus connected with the course

A network environment and collaborative ethos

Being based with industry gives mechanical engineering degrees an excellent opportunity to flourish.

With MSc students working together on applied research for real engineering projects, the learning experience is greatly enhanced.

This course can be studied either full-time over one year, or part-time over two years. Generous scholarships are available for Home, EU and Overseas fee paying students.
