About the course

Transport is one of the largest industries in the world, facilitating the movement of everything from people to food, fuel and other essential/non-essential goods we now rely on in society. Without a cohesive transport infrastructure, economies would collapse, which means the demand for qualified specialists who have the acumen in this field is at an all-time high.

Studying our Transport Infrastructure: Design and Construction MSc will give you 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.

Student Profile

Viktor Rőthi

Why did you decide to study a masters at the University of Leeds?
I was lucky in the sense that I knew which area of civil engineering I want to be specialised in at the time I completed my Bachelor's. By all means I wanted to obtain a Master's degree with modules related to both highway and railway engineering, although it was difficult to find any as most MSc programmes at other institutions only include one of these. I therefore decided to wait with the applications and started to work for an engineering consultancy as a Graduate Highways Engineer in Leeds. A year later I found out that the University of Leeds introduces a brand new programme which not only meets my preference of modules, but I can also obtain my degree without affecting my full-time work.

What has been the best aspect of studying on your course and at the University so far and why?
I really enjoy that lecturers always provide time to have additional discussions about the lecture's topic and that they share their previous work experience. This way, students can take away some information that are usually not in the text books. This makes the lectures much more enjoyable as different solutions to real-life problems can be debated and the answers to numerical examples can be questioned.

What would you say to students coming to do the same course?
I definitely recommend the course to anyone who is looking to broaden their technical knowledge in the fields that the programme covers or working towards chartership. For the latter one, as the majority of the coursework is directed to finding solutions to real-life issues similar to a working environment, they are great to be included in the evidences submitted for the ICE attributes. Thanks to the flexibility of the programme, part-time students have the option to attune the lecture times with the working hours by choosing which modules they wish to take in each year.
