Course summary

Why choose this course?

This industry-accredited course is aimed at civil and/or structural engineers who aspire to become senior sustainability managers in both consulting engineering and contracting organisations. It successfully balances sustainable structural engineering with advanced construction management, and is led by a fellow of the Institution of Civil Engineers and Institution of Structural Engineers. This programme builds on the research excellence in sustainable concrete construction at Kingston University and is fully compatible with the existing Government and Foresight Strategy on Sustainable Construction. Input from experts at leading civil engineering, construction and related companies complements the academic teaching. This enables you to develop a wider perspective and understanding of the worldwide sustainability issues facing the construction industry.

What you will study

The hands-on course focuses on the challenges and opportunities for the concrete industry in meeting the demands of sustainability. It combines concrete technology, sustainable construction, earthquake engineering, fire assessment, geo-environmental engineering and construction management. The structural design in concrete module is assessed by coursework based on the national university competition organised by The Concrete Centre, the trade body representing the concrete industry in the UK. For a student to go on placement they are required to pass every module first time with no reassessments. It is the responsibility of individual students to find a suitable paid placement. Students will be supported by our dedicated placement team in securing this opportunity.

Teaching and assessment

Assessment typically comprises exams (eg test or exam), practical (eg presentations, performance) and coursework (eg essays, reports, self-assessment, portfolios, dissertation).

After you graduate

The market for sustainable construction management is continually evolving. Graduates from this programme will be prepared for senior technical and managerial positions in both private and governmental sectors, including: civil/structural engineer, concrete technologist, materials engineer, technical manager, designer/ consultant, project engineer, construction engineer, sustainable construction manager, systems engineering consultant and project manager
