The course aims to provide a rigorous and theoretically informed approach to the study of infrastructure asset design and management. This will be achieved by highlighting new frameworks and methodologies that bring risk and uncertainty into the milieu of decision-making for infrastructure development. Furthermore, the course will equip you with a wide range of analysis, conceptual, scheme and detailed design skills in structures, geotechnics, hydraulics, and materials. You will adopt professional standards, recognising obligations to society, health and safety, the environment, and the profession. The programme offers a holistic approach to engineering design, management, decision making and problem solving that lead to more robust, resilient and future proofing infrastructure assets.
