This course will begin on schedule in the Autumn and we plan to reopen our campuses. We are looking forward to seeing you in person, if travel and visa arrangements allow. If you can’t travel to campus in time for the start of term, we want to reassure you that your academic Department has made plans which make it possible to offer you a high-quality remote educational experience during the Autumn term. 

Your teaching will be a combination of on-campus (in-person) and remote learning (online). We call this ‘multi-mode’ delivery. Depending on official government guidance throughout the entirety of next academic year, the ‘multi-mode’ balance may be subject to change. We hope to be able to offer you increased on-campus teaching and learning activities throughout the year. 

For more information about multi-mode delivery, your learning experience and the steps we’ll be taking to keep you safe on campus if you are able to join us, please see our Covid 19 information for applicants and offer holders page.

If you are interested in refreshing or updating your skills, or learning something new, but cannot commit to study full-time, you should consider our MSc modules, some of which we offer as stand alone units alongside some purpose made short courses.

As part of its teaching provision, the Department offers a wide range of MSc programmes  to practicing engineers and fresh graduates designed specifically to upgrade or develop new areas of expertise. These programmes, delivered by leading international specialists, are accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators.

All professional development is run in conjunction with the College School of Professional Development.

Modular Courses

The range of modules available are grouped within the following subject areas: Environmental Engineering, Advanced Structural Engineering and Transport. Others offer external applicants the opportunity to join some of our taught MSc modules. These courses are delivered on a modular basis during the Autumn and Spring terms and are available to professionals, who, while not wishing to register for an MSc degree, wish to acquire additional specialist training. Provision of these modules are dependent upon demand.

The Autumn Term runs from October to December and the spring term from January to March of each year, both terms are of 11 weeks duration.

Certificates of Attendance

The Imperial College London Certificate of Attendance will be issued to all delegates who have successfully and satisfactorily completed their chosen module(s); transcripts will be issued to those to undertake the relevant assessments associated with the modules.

Short-Course Mode
