Overview

This part-time, distance learning Postgraduate Diploma course aims to develop the next generation of senior construction professionals working in design of concrete mixes, concrete production and construction.

It’s designed to provide you with advanced, in-depth knowledge of both the theory and practical application of concrete technology to prepare you for a variety of senior roles.

You’ll gain academic and industrial expertise using a range of online resources that give you the flexibility to study around your work and personal lives. From health and safety and quality control to mixture proportioning, repair and maintenance and life cycle analysis, you’ll develop an understanding of a wide range of issues that affect professionals in the concrete industry today.

The Postgraduate Diploma is a part-time course run over 24 months. You can also study for an MSc qualification over 36 months, which means you’ll study the same content and complete an additional research project.

Accreditation

The course is accredited by the Institute of Concrete Technology.

Learning and teaching

The four taught modules each run over a semester period and are taught using a range of online distance learning methods. Short pre-recorded lectures will introduce each topic, and you’ll then learn through group assignments conducted online.

You’ll also have access to the reference books and other consultation documents you need through the programme portal and our library’s online resources.

On this course you’ll be taught by our expert academics, from lecturers through to professors. You may also be taught by industry professionals with years of experience, as well as trained postgraduate researchers, connecting you to some of the brightest minds on campus.

Assessment

Each module contains a mixture of group and individual assessment; with in-depth problem-based assessment complemented by questions probing your understanding of concrete technology, and by online assessment. These will evaluate your problem-solving skills as well as the breadth and depth of your understanding of the topics covered.

Career opportunities

It is expected that the majority of students on the course will already be working within the concrete industry and looking to progress their career within their chosen field.

If you have no industrial experience, this course will provide an excellent route to a career within the concrete industry as you learn industrial practices through group projects involving participants from industry.

During your course you will have the opportunity to get to know people from the concrete industry through their association with tutors from the industry who will be part of the course delivery team.
