My Surrey experience – Alex Salter, MSc Bridge Engineering DL

“Surrey maintains its reputation as one of the top universities for postgraduate teaching on Civil Engineering”

I undertook my MSc at Surrey as a part-time distance learning student whilst working full time in an engineering design consultancy. I found the flexibility to attend lectures at the University as well as being able to switch to distance learning very useful, especially when my work commitments got in the way of lectures.

I started my MSc degree in Bridge Engineering at Surrey having finished my BEng in Civil Engineering three years previously. My engineering industry experience helped me focus my studies and module choices towards the areas that interested me, and to the topics that would progress my career.

The standard of the course material and the relevance of the modules within industry are second to none, with the course staff and lecturers putting in significant effort to make sure you feel part of the programme even if you’re studying as a distance learner.

Surrey’s Bridge Engineering MSc achieves the right balance between theoretical study and practical design, providing you with a well-rounded degree that you can use within industry.   

I feel that I’ve significantly gained and furthered my career by undertaking a part-time distance learning MSc at Surrey. Surrey maintains its reputation as one of the top universities for postgraduate teaching on Civil Engineering.
