Surrey University


The university is hoping to launch a two to three year part-time transport related MSc in September with a curriculum devised in partnership with local authorities and transport consultants. The course would be taught by people from the industry and students could work on projects specific to their workplace.

Nearly half the one day a week course would be work based placements. A working party involving industry figures has worked out the course structure.

'Firms in the transport industry came to us because they are worried about the training of their employees, ' says Surrey University's Dr Bob Griffi ths who has spent the last six years talking to industry about developing such a course.

'We've had some very good support from the major players locally to us and now we've widened it to the whole industry.'
