Armitt to teach engineering students

London 2012 chief Sir John Armitt is to help deliver a new postgraduate degree in infrastructure engineering and management.

The former chairman of the Olympic Delivery Authority is among several big names assisting with the University of Surrey course.

Beginning in September, the qualification is aimed at boosting future delivery of major projects.

The University said it was responding to high demand for infrastructure specialists to support the UK government in its delivery of the National Infrastructure Plan.

It added that there was also an urgent need in countries such as Brazil, Russia, India and China for efficient planning of infrastructure.

“The MSc in infrastructure engineering and management aims to equip students with the key skills and knowledge needed to fulfil these roles,” said the course brochure.

Other key speakers on the course will include planning chief Sir Michael Pitt and Engineering UK board member Keith Clarke.

Full details of the qualification are available on the University of Surrey website.
