Civil engineering and construction evaluation:

Description

Develop your skills, knowledge and understanding in geotechnical and civil engineering as well a range of specialist fields. These include offshore geotechnical engineering, advanced soil mechanics and soil dynamics and earthquake engineering. With a range of guest speakers and seminars planned by industry experts throughout the year, you will have the opportunity to experience how your learning can be applied in real life situations. You will undertake a research project linked to current industry needs. Recent project examples have looked at seismic retrofit of bridges in Christchurch, improved design of anchor systems for offshore aquaculture, and novel foundations for floating wind turbines. You will also have the chance to work with our commercial grade experimental equipment and laboratory facilities. Depending on your project, this may include our Scottish Marine and Renewables Test Centre for Concrete and Geotechnics and our 3m radius geotechnical centrifuge (one of only three in Europe capable of earthquake replication).

About this university

International students

For students travelling from outside the UK, the International Advice Service is available to help them with all aspects of the transition. They offer confidential advice and help on matters such as immigration and visas, working during and after studies as well as community group information and links to international hospitality schemes. There is support for international families as well as arranging cultural and social events during the year aimed primarily at international students. They are based in the Enquiry Centre on Campus Green or via email. Students are represented by the University's Student Representative Council while the Students Association organises the societies, clubs and organisations outside the classroom. It is unusual because it isn't a member of the National Union of Students due to cost and political considerations. The union is based in Airlie Place, at the centre of the main campus and has a bar, nightclub and refectory on site. There are 42 clubs associated with the Sports Union at the university and these have annual award ceremonies as well as an annual Ball. A multi-million pound redevelopment saw a number of new facilities for sports around the university including the first UK gym with mp3/mp4 compatible personal viewing screens.
