Course Overview

The Postgraduate Diploma (PGD) and Master of Science (MSc) Programs in Civil Infrastructural Engineering and Management offer advanced civil engineering and management courses beyond the undergraduate level and the courses are designed for those who wish to strengthen their knowledge and prepare for advanced engineering practices with management responsibilities.

The programs are designed with flexibility to adapt to students’ specific needs and interests, while at the same time ensuring sufficient breadth. Few restrictions are imposed on students’ course selections. Students have the freedom to define their own areas of concentrations by taking courses from a few selected technical areas, or cover a broad base by taking courses from various areas. This flexibility is valuable as students may have different needs at different stages of their careers in the design and management of civil infrastructure systems.

On successful completion of the program, graduates will be able to:

  1. Describe basic and advanced knowledge and skills in civil infrastructural engineering and management;
  2. Identify civil infrastructural engineering and management problems and propose feasible solutions;
  3. Plan and design civil infrastructural engineering components and systems; and
  4. Analyze major factors impacting civil infrastructural systems and provide strategies for managing these.
