Study Details

MSc: 36 months part-time

This part-time, distance learning Masters course aims to develop the next generation of senior construction professionals working in design of concrete mixes, concrete production and construction. It’s designed to provide you with advanced, in-depth knowledge of both the theory and practical application of concrete technology to prepare you for a variety of senior roles.

You’ll gain academic and industrial expertise using a range of online resources that give you the flexibility to study around your work and personal lives. From health and safety and quality control to mixture proportioning, repair and maintenance and life cycle analysis, you’ll develop an understanding of a wide range of issues that affect professionals in the concrete industry today.

If you complete the MSc, you’ll also have the chance to conduct your own research project – a chance to focus on a single topic and demonstrate valuable skills when you present your findings in a comprehensive technical report.

Module details

Take a look at the course page for more detail on what you will study. These are typical modules/components and will give you a flavour of what it’s like to study – modules may change from time to time.

Entry Requirements

A bachelor degree with a 2:2 (hons) in civil engineering or a related discipline.

We will also consider applications from candidates with at least 5 years’ experience at senior managerial level in concrete plant and concrete constructions. This will need to be independently verifiable.

If you have passed the Institute of Concrete Technology exam stages 1-3, you’ll be eligible for approved prior learning which would allow you to be admitted to the PGDip or MSc (Eng). 

If you have passed stage 4, you’ll be eligible for approved prior learning so that if you undertake the 60-credit research project over 12 months part-time, you’ll graduate with an MSc (Eng) from the University of Leeds.

Programme Funding

The School of Civil Engineering offer a range of scholarships for UK, EU and International students. Find out more about our Scholarships -

Student Destinations

It is expected that the majority of students on the course will already be working within the concrete industry and looking to progress their career within their chosen field.

If you have no industrial experience, this course will provide an excellent route to a career within the concrete industry as you learn industrial practices through group projects involving participants from industry.

During your course you will have the opportunity to get to know people from the concrete industry through their association with tutors from the industry who will be part of the course delivery team.
