University of Bristol: Earthquake Engineering and Infrastructure Resilience
|Institution||University of Bristol|
|Telephone||+44 (0) 117 394 1649|
Our aim is to produce the next generation of leaders in earthquake engineering risk assessment and natural disaster risk management who want to make an impact on the design of the built environment, the mitigation of seismic loss and the protection of human life.
This discipline demands world-class facilities and at Bristol, you will have access to the state-of-the-art BLADE/EQUALS laboratory (https://www.bristol.ac.uk/engineering/research/earthquakegeo/equip/), including one of the most advanced earthquake shaking tables in Europe, as well as the £12 million UKCRIC National Soil-Foundation-Structure Interaction Laboratory (https://sofsi.bristol.ac.uk/).
Throughout the programme, you will work with expert staff and international partners, exposing you to the real-world challenges that engineers face. Industry links are integral to the programme and our graduates are highly sought after by major UK and international employers.
One of the many highlights of the programme is a field trip to an earthquake-affected area in southeastern Europe. Provided that travel is permitted, you will have the opportunity to visit structures designed with innovative methods to resist earthquake forces or inspect the damage in the recent aftermath of a seismic event. You will use modern tools for non-destructive material testing and remote imaging.

An upper second-class honours degree or international equivalent in Civil, Mechanical or Information Engineering, Applied Physics, Geology or Mathematics. Other areas of Engineering may be considered. We will consider applicants who do not have a degree listed above if they have evidence of significant, relevant work experience. If this is the case, applicants should include their CV (curriculum vitae / résumé) when they apply, showing details of their relevant work experience and/or qualifications.
For applicants who are currently completing a degree, we understand that their final grade may be higher than the interim grades or module/unit grades they achieve during their studies.
We will consider applicants whose interim grades are currently slightly lower than the programme's entry requirements. We may make these applicants an aspirational offer. This offer would be at the standard level, so the applicant would need to achieve the standard entry requirements by the end of their degree. Specific module requirements may still apply.
We will consider applicants whose grades are slightly lower than the programme's entry requirements, if they have at least one of the following:
- evidence of significant, relevant work experience;
If this is the case, applicants should include their CV (curriculum vitae / résumé) when they apply, showing details of their relevant work experience and/or qualifications.
