Student Profile(s)

Alex Salter

"I undertook my MSc at Surrey as a part-time distance learning student whilst working full time in an engineering design consultancy. I found the flexibility to attend lectures at the University as well as being able to switch to distance learning very useful, especially when my work commitments got in the way of lectures.

I started my MSc degree in Bridge Engineering at Surrey having finished my BEng in Civil Engineering three years previously. My engineering industry experience helped me focus my studies and module choices towards the areas that interested me, and to the topics that would progress my career.

The standard of the course material and the relevance of the modules within industry are second to none, with the course staff and lecturers putting in significant effort to make sure you feel part of the programme even if you’re studying as a distance learner.

Surrey’s Bridge Engineering MSc achieves the right balance between theoretical study and practical design, providing you with a well-rounded degree that you can use within industry.

I feel that I’ve significantly gained and furthered my career by undertaking a part-time distance learning MSc at Surrey. Surrey maintains its reputation as one of the top universities for postgraduate teaching on Civil Engineering. "

"I completed my first degree in Civil Engineering back in 1986 and have worked in various design, management and specialist civil engineering roles since then.

"In 2008, a change of direction took me to my employer’s highway structures group and I was looking for some CPD courses to bring me up to speed. Some of the Bridge Engineering modules from the Surrey MSc programme stood out as meeting my needs so I signed up with the intention of doing perhaps two or three modules.

"However, the quality of the lectures and course material as well as the challenge and sense of achievement kept me coming back for more, and in four years I was able to complete the programme of eight modules plus the project. It was hard work, but the flexibility of the part-time programme enabled me to study as well as continue with full time employment and look after my young family.

"The project within Surrey’s Bridge Engineering MSc was particularly rewarding as I was able to link an independent piece of research work with a real-world project for my employer.

"Surrey has given me the technical background and specialist knowledge I need to carry out my current role in bridge engineering. And of course the MSc is a valuable addition to my CV."
