The programme is relevant to conditions found in both developed and developing countries and are suitable for road engineers and civil engineering graduates who want to pursue a career in road management.
The basic requirement is a good Honours degree in an appropriate discipline (for example, Engineering, Sciences, Geology, Geography or Mathematics) and evidence of adequate knowledge of English. However, practical experience may also be taken into account.

The programme consists of taught modules and a research project. Student development is through a combination of lectures, tutorials, site visits and major and minor projects. Student-centred, computer-based and flexible learning are important elements. Coursework and oral presentations are required for many projects.
The programme is also designed with part-time students in mind, and is formulated specifically to facilitate the career development of individuals working in the roads sector and meet the demands of both the UK and overseas road industry. Part-time students take the same modules as full-time students, but can opt to take the programme over a two or three-year period.
