Educational aims of the programme

The state-of-art of infrastructure engineering and management that is required for the realisation of the complex delivery of new and management and of existing infrastructure

A holistic overview of infrastructure as a system of systems, viewed within the social, economic and environmental context, and the drivers for sustainable infrastructure development and change

A knowledge of the fundamental multi-disciplinary frameworks that can be adopted for the planning, design, management and operation of interconnected infrastructure systems

A specialisation in an infrastructure area of their choice (i.e. bridge, building, geotechnical, water, wind) providing them with detailed background for the analysis and solution of specific problems associated with individual infrastructure components
