Postgraduate Diploma in Engineering in Road and Transport Engineering
This on-line part-time programme is aimed at preparing engineering graduates including local authority engineers, consultants and contractors with the knowledge, skills and competences required for an accredited postgraduate award in road and transport engineering.
The Postgraduate Diploma consists of two part-time on-line blended learning stages (years), with Stage 1 consisting of Semester 1 and 2, where the theme is road maintenance engineering and network management. Stage 1 is equivalent to the L9 Postgraduate Certificate in Road Maintenance Engineering & Network Management
In Stage 2 (Semester 3 and 4), the focus is on road design and construction. The overall performance contributes to the award. The learning is a mix of on-line lectures, on-campus workshops and project assignments.
Successful graduates can progress to the MEng programme (Stage 3) in which a research dissertation is undertaken during Semester 5 and 6.
