Structural & Material Engineering (STRUCM)

Description of Division

The Center of Studies, for Structural and Materials Engineering (StrucM) constantly contributes to adapting to the rapid changes and specialization of programs in Civil Engineering with a very clear focus on structural engineering and construction materials. To keep abreast with the need of construction industries, the Center has been providing foundation and advance courses on the construction materials, material design and analysis, structure analysis, structural design and in the modeling and analysis tools employed for the numerical quantification and visualization of structural response etc. The subjects taught contribute to the formation of the fundamentals of the calculation (analysis and design) of the building structures and new knowledge on advanced materials which offering helpful tools for engineers and be ready to solve complex structural and material engineering problem. Civil engineering stresses that studies should be closely combined with engineering practice therefore site visits and talks by practitioners has been incorporated in the curriculum and encouraged if not stated. Full details of the courses offered can be found in the academic guideline book published by the faculty.

For advance and new materials mechanics and development, the adoption of new materials, structural design and analysis of bridges and tall building inclusive the seismic components, structural repairs and strengthening, and the application of information technologies for construction engineering have become the major features in the development of the curriculum for postgraduate programme.

Besides high quality teaching and instruction at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, the Center is actively involved in basic and applied research and consultancy and provides high quality technical advisory support through various R&D projects and consultancy to various organizations. The Division of Structures and Materials continues to maintain and cultivate its strong links with the infrastructural industry and academic and research institutions both within and outside the country.
