The Road Management and Engineering programme from University of Birmingham has been devised to meet the demands of both the UK and overseas road industry. It offers advanced training to engineers aspiring to higher or middle management in public and private sector road management. Course content is geared towards conditions found in developed and developing countries, and the course is suitable for road engineers and civil engineering graduates seeking to take their career into road management.
Management-focused modules complement the range of subjects taught in the engineering oriented modules and include state-of-the-art principles and practices associated with road asset management, economics and financing, HDM-4 (the World Bank’s de facto standard for road investment appraisal) and planning.
Graduates are held in high regard and many of today’s senior executives in road authorities throughout the world are graduates of the programme.
Our excellent links with industry ensure that the vast majority of graduates find rewarding employment and amongst our recent graduates are those who have joined the World Bank, government road agencies, local authorities, international arms of consulting engineers, niche asset management specialists and road contractors as well as those who have gone on to PhD study.
Your MSc counts towards achieving Chartered Engineer accreditation.
