Subject Options

Total 300 points – Students must complete all 300 points of subjects, including all core subjects, or have advanced standing or exemption.

Students must complete the following in the Master of Engineering (Structural):

  • 225 credit points of core subjects
  • 12.5 credit points of selective subjects
  • 62.5 credit points of structural engineering electives according to the lists below

The order of subjects below is one way of progressing through the course – students who meet subject requisites may tailor their individual study plan to take into account advanced standing and their study load. Students plan their study online and can seek further advice from Stop 1 on individual study plans.

Suggested first 100 points:

Suggested study plan for the first 100 points:

  • 100 points Core as listed below (including one selective)

Note: In 2013, ENGR30001 Fluid Mechanics & Thermodynamics was replaced with ENGR30002 Fluid Mechanics. Students who have completed ENGR30001 are not required to complete ENGR30002.

Students who completed CVEN30008 Risk Analysis or equivalent should consult with a course advisor to discuss their course structure.
