This new Advanced Materials for Sustainable Infrastructure MSc degree offered at Imperial College London aims to train future leaders in the role of materials in resilient and sustainable built infrastructure.


Civil infrastructure is critical to the development of most countries, with the UK Government alone now investing £60bn/year in new infrastructure. Huge volumes of materials are used to construct the buildings, bridges, roads, railways, airports, sea defences, power stations and other vital infrastructure that we need. 

Aimed at engineers and scientists, this Advanced Materials for Sustainable Infrastructure MSc degree at Imperial College London will provide a deep understanding of the behaviour and characteristics of civil engineering materials, and the ability to develop sustainable designs for construction.

The programme is delivered in a world-leading Civil and Environmental Engineering department and the training and research you undertake will be at the forefront of developments in this area. You will have access to the new world-class Advanced Infrastructure Materials Laboratory, housed in the Department, to carry out innovative research. 


This Master’s degree will produce the materials experts desperately needed by industry, in the UK and around the world. Potential employers include engineering consultants designing and supervising new infrastructure projects or upgrades to existing infrastructure, contractors constructing or upgrading/repairing infrastructure, materials manufacturers and suppliers, owners of built assets, test houses involved in testing materials and surveying structures, companies involved in designing and installing monitoring systems on infrastructure.

You will also be prepared for a career in research, making you attractive to government research laboratories concerned with the built environment and universities with civil engineering departments.
