This programme requires International students who need a Tier 4 visa to obtain an Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS) certificate. Because there is not enough time to get this and get a visa before the September 2019 entry point we are unfortunately not able to take any further applications for September 2019 from International students who will require a Tier 4 visa. Any interested applicants should instead apply for the next entry point after September 2019. For further information on ATAS and the visa process please see:
Home, EU or International applicants who do not need a Tier 4 visa are welcome to apply for September 2019.
Brunel University London provides this world-leading MSc degree for the next generation of structural integrity engineers.
This unique, industry-focused MSc in Structural Integrity (Asset Reliability Management) is delivered at the National Structural Integrity Research Centre (NSIRC), a state-of-the-art postgraduate engineering facility based at Granta Park, near Cambridge.
The aim of this MSc course is to develop you into a highly sought after industry-ready engineer with in-depth knowledge in the theory and practice of the science and technology of structural integrity, including state-of-the-art methodologies and techniques in inspection.
Our Structural Integrity (Asset Reliability Management) MSc focuses on detecting and dealing with defects in structures and how to assess the implications of a particular defect. You will gain a sound understanding of stress analysis, how a structure carries loads, and you’ll learn different aspects relating to instrumentation and damage detection.
NSIRC is a unique academia-industry collaboration located within the headquarters of TWI. Here you'll find dedicated teaching and research laboratories including 15 million pounds worth of state-of-the-art equipment. You will benefit from access to a range of leading and industry relevant software packages, as well as an on-site high performance computing facility to run high-fidelity and complex numerical simulation to support your experimental work. As a Cambridge-based student, you’ll also have access to all the course-related facilities at Brunel and will enjoy regular organised visits to the Brunel University London campus.
Based within an industrial environment, there are excellent opportunities for networking, together with undertaking applied research on real engineering projects. Combined with the benefits of living in the Cambridge area, which includes historical, cultural and social attractions, NSIRC attracts international students and practising engineers, thus greatly enhancing your learning experience.
Brunel’s Structural Integrity (Asset Reliability Management) MSc degree is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) and the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3). It can be studied either full-time over one year, or part-time over two years. The College of Engineering, Design and Physical Sciences & TWI are offering the NSIRC scholarship for Home, EU and Overseas fee paying students starting the full-time or part-time MSc in Structural Integrity (Asset Reliability Management) in September 2019.
New for 2019/20, work towards an internationally recognised CSWIP Plant Inspection qualification in parallel with your degree.
