Surrey graduates celebrate pioneering Masters degree

Amanda Richards (left) and Helen Currie from Surrey County Council celebrate graduating from the UK’s first Masters in Highway Engineering course through the SE7 group of councils.

Surrey County Council employees have completed the UK’s first Masters course in roads engineering.

The two-year course was launched in 2012 by the county council with the SE7 group of councils and the University of Brighton to train up the next generation of public sector highways managers, and has sparked interest from other academic institutions keen on running a similar qualification.

Surrey County Council has the lead role in SE7 for finding ways to improve highway services and cut costs. The other councils involved are East Sussex, West Sussex, Kent, Hampshire, Brighton and Hove and Medway.
