Within Structural Engineering, students can pursue a program of work leading to a Master of Science in Engineering (M.S.) or a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.). These degree programs are designed to prepare students for careers in engineering practice, research and education.
The Structural Engineering Program welcomes applications from highly qualified candidates for the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees. Structural Engineering graduate students are a diverse group and come from all over the U.S. and from all around the world. We seek graduate students that exemplify the highest standards of academic achievement and are motivated to become future leaders in industry and in academia.
Current research in Structural Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin is addressing a wide array of critical problems of the built infrastructure. Our faculty, students, and technical staff work together on research questions spanning from the fundamental to the highly practical. Much of our research combines large-scale experiments with advanced computational simulations.
