Strategic airport planning and airside design are some of the topics covered by the range of short airport related courses offered by Loughborough University's Department of Civil & Building Engineering.
Loughborough runs five different courses each year which between them cover most aspect of airport planning, design and management.
Air travel has steadily increased year on year for the last two decades and air traffic forecasters predict that the demand will continue in the future. This means that the need for airport development and planning professionals will also continue to grow.
Courses offered by the university include airport airside and landside design; business management for airports; airport strategic and master planning; airport environmental policy; protection and mitigation; and simulating airport operational flows.
The courses are run over five days by lecturers from the university plus invited speakers from within the industry and are aimed at anyone wishing to further their knowledge of airport related issues. All of the courses use case studies to demonstrate the application of methods and techniques introduced on the course and delegates are encouraged to contribute their own expertise.
