From single structures through to industrial complexes and entire neighbourhoods, infrastructure engineering is at the heart of communities of every size, driving economic growth in countries across the world.

Our unique and fully accredited course draws on our many years of experience in offering advanced postgraduate courses. You’ll be taught by academics with an impressive track record in infrastructure issues, together with industry and government professionals.

We will also give you the opportunity to attend keynote talks from distinguished speakers held on campus, as well as participate in field trips to organisations related to the material you are studying.

What you will study

Our MSc in Infrastructure Engineering and Management covers the planning, design, analysis and management frameworks of infrastructure systems. It will help you develop a holistic overview of infrastructure systems.

In particular, you will develop expertise in the technical aspects of infrastructure engineering within a social, economic, environmental and political context; the factors that affect and drive infrastructure planning and funding; and the interdependent nature of infrastructure across different sectors.

You’ll qualify with a sound understanding of the whole life-cycle of infrastructure assets, the environmental impact of infrastructure projects, sustainable decision-making and formal asset-management techniques, enabling you to maximise the benefits of infrastructure assets in the future.

You can use the knowledge obtained from this course for the creation of new infrastructure as well as the management of existing infrastructure systems. Case studies included in the course cover different infrastructure sectors from transport to water and energy as well as flood defences, ranging across the globe.

Academic year structure

Our MSc course consists of eight modules which you will take over two semesters. This also includes a dissertation project that is carried out throughout the academic year.

The structure of our programmes follows clear educational aims that are tailored to each programme. These are all outlined in the programme specifications which include further details such as the learning outcomes.

Study and work abroad

There may be opportunities to acquire valuable European experience by working or conducting research abroad during your degree or shortly afterwards. It is possible to do this in the summer period with an Erasmus+ grant working on your dissertation or as a recent graduate. In order to qualify your Erasmus+ traineeship must be a minimum of two months.

Academic support, facilities and equipment

Your modules will be taught by a total of 20 full or part-time members of academic staff, as well as a number of visiting lecturers from the industry and government.

In addition to the University Library and Learning Centre’s extensive resources, our excellent testing facilities can support you if you decide to pursue an experimentally-based MSc dissertation project.

Modes of study

Alongside the usual full-time study, there are also part-time options. You can study the majority of Bridge, Infrastructure, Geotechnical and Structural Engineering modules by distance learning through the use of the interactive web-based e-learning platform SurreyLearn.

Distance learning

You can study this course via distance learning, which gives you a high level of flexibility and enables you to study alongside other commitments you may have.
