Accreditation

The course is accredited by the Institute of Concrete Technology.

Course content

At the start of the programme you’ll attend an induction event over two or three days at the University of Leeds, giving you the chance to meet fellow students and talk to tutors about course content, learning and assessment methods and what’s expected of you as a part-time student.

From there you’ll study four modules spread over the next two years covering different aspects of concrete technology such the constituent materials of concrete, thermal movements, strength development, fire resistance, life cycle costing, formwork and sustainability. You’ll work on a series of group and individual projects online to apply your knowledge and develop your skills.

If you undertake the MSc, you will have an opportunity to carry out independent research on a contemporary topic that is relevant to the construction industry in Year 3. This will enable you to use the scientific knowledge gained during the taught modules, apply it to a more contextual situation and present the outcome of the research in a comprehensive technical report.

Learning and teaching

The four taught modules each run over a semester period and are taught using a range of online distance learning methods. Short pre-recorded lectures will introduce each topic, and you’ll then learn through group assignments conducted online. You’ll also have access to the reference books and other consultation documents you need through the programme portal and our library’s online resources.

Assessment

Each module contains a mixture of group and individual assessment; with two compulsory, formative pieces of coursework and two summative, individual assignments completed at different stages of the module. These will evaluate your problem-solving skills as well as the breadth and depth of your understanding of the topics covered.

Research Project

You’ll undertake a research project in Year 3, or Year 1 if you are studying based on approved prior learning.

This is an excellent opportunity to apply the knowledge and skills you’ve gained to explore a topic that interests you, or relates to your own career plans or professional context, and present your findings in a comprehensive technical report.

You’ll have an external supervisor close to your place of work, where you can complete your research, as well as an internal University of Leeds supervisor appointed by the programme leader. They’ll review the three progress reports you submit during the project and offer feedback to help you shape and refine your work.

A three-day induction event at the University of Leeds will help you to prepare for conducting your own research, with the chance to review the taught modules and study the research methods and statistical tools used in experimental research. 

Career opportunities

It is expected that the majority of students on the course will already be working within the concrete industry and looking to progress their career within their chosen field.

If you have no industrial experience, this course will provide an excellent route to a career within the concrete industry as you learn industrial practices through group projects involving participants from industry.

During your course you will have the opportunity to get to know people from the concrete industry through their association with tutors from the industry who will be part of the course delivery team.
