Overview

Transport is one of the largest industries in the world, facilitating the movement of everything from people to food, fuel and other essential/non-essential goods we now rely on in society. Without a cohesive transport infrastructure, economies would collapse, which means the demand for qualified specialists who have the acumen in this field is at an all-time high.

Studying our Transport Infrastructure: Design and Construction MSc will give you a holistic view of the design, construction and maintenance of land transport infrastructure, regarded by the construction industry as a key asset in the engineers they need to recruit.

You’ll develop a sophisticated understanding of techniques at the forefront of transport infrastructure, whilst exploring the latest technological developments, advanced materials and what the future holds for monitoring and repairing infrastructure.

The specialist knowledge and extensive skill set you’ll build throughout the course will give you the expertise sought after by key employers in industry, with career opportunities spanning from project managing and planning to engineering and design.

Programme Structure

You’ll study a set of core and optional modules that give you a firm foundation in understanding the concepts, information and techniques at the forefront of the design, construction, and operations of land transport infrastructure engineering.

Learn how bridges, highways and tunnels are designed, built and maintained through modules that look at construction technology, interactions between construction and design, latest developments in structural health monitoring, bridge, road and highway engineering.

You’ll also be trained in techniques at the forefront of design, construction, and maintenance of infrastructure and acquire specialist knowledge on the latest technological developments such as accelerated bridge construction, advanced materials like ultra-high performance concrete, and the possibilities of cutting-edge sensing techniques and robotics for the monitoring and repair of infrastructure.
