Study type Taught


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 (, including one of the most advanced earthquake shaking tables in Europe, as well as the £12 million UKCRIC National Soil-Foundation-Structure Interaction Laboratory (

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.
