Civil Infrastructure Management and Maintenance (CIMM)

The Programme in Civil Infrastructure Management and Maintenance equips engineers and infrastructure managers with appropriate technical skills for management and maintenance of civil infrastructure. The programme draws from a number of fields including civil and structural engineering, construction planning and project management.

The primary aim of the MSc(Eng) and PM(Eng) specialising in Civil Infrastructure Management and Maintenance is to produce graduates with the necessary knowledge and skills to engage effectively in structural and materials engineering with respect to maintenance, rehabilitation and management of civil infrastructure. The broad areas of interest are deterioration science, assessment technologies, and renewal engineering. Read more
