Are you interested in pursuing a career in structural integrity and reliability engineering? Look no further than this full-time MSc programme offered by the National Structural Integrity Research Centre (NSIRC) and Brunel University London.

Our world-class MSc degree is designed to support the development of the next generation of structural integrity and reliability engineers. Delivered at TWI Ltd near Cambridge, the home of NSIRC, this mechanical engineering course aims to develop MSc students into highly sought-after engineers.

Graduates will gain a comprehensive understanding of the theory and practice, innovation and technology involved in structural integrity.

Overview of the MSc Programme in Structural Integrity

The programme is designed to give participants an in-depth knowledge of the theory and science and technology practice involved with structural integrity. Through a combination of eight modules and an industry-supported dissertation, students will gain a comprehensive understanding of the theory and practice, innovation, and technology involved in structural integrity.

Comprising of eight modules and an industry-supported dissertation, the course has been designed for full-time students, as well as Continuing Professional Development (CPD) delegates.

Detecting and Dealing with Defects in Structures 

This master's degree examines detecting and dealing with defects in structures 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.

Thanks to Brunel University London, this industry-led master's programme is producing the highly skilled engineers that global energy organisations are calling for, with structural integrity engineers capable of meeting the rapidly changing demands of technology innovation and production needs.



This degree has been accredited by The Welding Institute, Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), Institute of Materials Minerals and Mining (IOM3), etc., under license from the UK regulator, the Engineering Council.

Accreditation is a mark of assurance that the degree meets the standards set by the Engineering Council in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC).

An accredited degree will provide you with some or all of the underpinning knowledge, understanding, and skills for eventual registration as an Incorporated (IEng) or Chartered Engineer (CEng).

Some employers recruit preferentially from accredited degrees, and an accredited degree is likely to be recognised by other countries that are signatories to international accords.

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 simulations to support their experimental work
  • Sports facilities
  • Access to all buildings at Brunel University London campus connected with the course

A Networking Environment and Collaborative Ethos

Being based in industry gives mechanical engineers an excellent opportunity to flourish. With MSc students working together on applied research for real engineering projects, the learning experience is greatly enhanced.
