Mega Infrastructure Planning, Appraisal and Delivery

This programme is unique in preparing students for the major challenges ahead globally in the mega infrastructure field. The programme offers a holistic approach to the field offering decision making and problem solving that lead to more robust investment outcomes. The programme is delivered through a combination of traditional lectures, tutorials and seminars, a field trip, individual and group project work, and skills-based practical project work, with direct practitioner involvement.

Entry requirements

Normally a minimum of an upper 2nd Class Honours degree (or higher) from a UK university or an overseas qualification of equivalent standing. There is no particular subject requirement as the course provides an 'initial' planning education for graduates with cognate or non-cognate degrees. Where candidates fail to meet the standard requirement (i.e. they hold a degree of a lower classification), the department will take into account professional experience in planning or a related field when considering the application. Applicants who do not hold a 1st degree may, in exceptional cases, be admitted to the programme if they are able to demonstrate considerable senior-level professional experience in planning or a related field.

Core modules: Mega infrastructures as agents of change; infrastructure planning, appraisal and delivery toolbox; risk, uncertainty and complexity in decision-making; critical issues in mega infrastructure investments; 21st-century infrastructure planning, sppraisal and delivery toolbox; sustainability visions and challenges for mega infrastructure investments; group project.
