Course content

This course is the only MSc focussing specifically on concrete technology. As such, it is recognised by the Institute of Concrete Technology as meeting the requirements for professional membership (MICT).

The part-time, distance learning Masters course has been designed to develop the next generation of senior construction professionals working in design of concrete mixes, concrete production and construction. It will provide you with advanced, in-depth knowledge of both the theory and practical application of concrete technology to prepare you for a variety of senior roles.

You’ll gain academic expertise using a range of online resources that have been developed to give you the flexibility to study around your work and personal lives.

The final year of the MSc offers you the chance to conduct your own research project – a chance to focus on a single topic and demonstrate valuable skills when you present your findings in a comprehensive technical report.
