Course content

Develop 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.

This course will give you specialist knowledge on how bridges, highways and tunnels are designed, built, and maintained. You will develop a sophisticated understanding of 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.

With an emphasis on the construction and maintenance stages and the ‘how-is-it-made’ approach, different construction processes and techniques will be explored in detail, and used as a platform to investigate how they affect (and are affected by) the design process, the selection of alternatives and the implications for the entire service life.
