Why choose this course

From single structures through to industrial complexes and entire neighbourhoods, infrastructure engineering is at the heart of communities of every size, driving economic growth in countries across the world.

Our unique and fully accredited course draws on our many years of experience in offering advanced postgraduate courses. You’ll be taught by academics with an impressive track record in infrastructure issues, together with industry and government professionals.

We will also give you the opportunity to attend keynote talks from distinguished speakers held on campus, as well as participate in field trips to organisations related to the material you are studying.

What you will study

Our MSc in Infrastructure Engineering and Management covers the planning, design, analysis and management frameworks of infrastructure systems. It will help you develop a holistic overview of infrastructure systems.

In particular, you will develop expertise in the technical aspects of infrastructure engineering within a social, economic, environmental and political context; the factors that affect and drive infrastructure planning and funding; and the interdependent nature of infrastructure across different sectors.

You’ll qualify with a sound understanding of the whole life-cycle of infrastructure assets, the environmental impact of infrastructure projects, sustainable decision-making and formal asset-management techniques, enabling you to maximise the benefits of infrastructure assets in the future.

You can use the knowledge obtained from this course for the creation of new infrastructure as well as the management of existing infrastructure systems. Case studies included in the course cover different infrastructure sectors from transport to water and energy as well as flood defences, ranging across the globe.
