|Overview||The Department of Structural and Transportation Engineering has 25 academics and 25 PhD students. The Department offers several post-graduate courses and is involved in 4 PhD schools on structural engineering. Research carried out in the Department of Structural and Transportation Engineering covers a number of aspects of concrete materials, masonry, structural steel, structural behaviour with experimental, analytical and numerical approaches, structural analysis and design. Currently, there are 5 academics, 1 experienced researcher and 5 PhD students working in the field of composites in construction.|
