In partnership with TWI, Brunel 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 located within the headquarters of TWI and there are dedicated teaching and research laboratories in the TWI building where you will benefit from access to industry standard software. In addition, there is an on-site high performance computing laboratory to run detailed 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.

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 NSRIC scholarship for Home, EU and Overseas fee paying students starting the full-time or part-time MSc in Structural Integrity (Asset Reliability Management) or MSc in Oil and Gas Engineering degree in September 2019/20.
