Summary

This course has two distinct streams; sustainable highways and sustainable railways.
Highway engineering is concerned with the planning, design, construction, maintenance and operation of highways, including vehicular, cycle and pedestrian highways and with their effective management. All this must be achieved as sustainably as possible.
Railway engineering is concerned with the planning, design, construction, maintenance and operation of railways, extending to rapid transit (tram) systems, and with their effective management. All this must be achieved as sustainably as possible.
Both of the streams within this programme take a radical, hands-on approach by linking traditional teaching intimately to near-real life highway and railway engineering problems. It provides the technical knowledge and skills to develop the analytical, decision-making and critical powers required to solve, in a sustainable way, genuine, practical highway and railway engineering problems. It will help you to develop transferable skills which could lead to a successful career in highway or railway engineering.
