I am a final year civil engineering student at a university in South Africa. I will be graduating at the end of this year with pretty good grades. I am very interested in the economics of engineering and how infrastructure development can influence the economic development of a country. I would like to do a post-graduate course in economics to tie my engineering background and my interest in economics together.
I've done a bit of research and so far I quite like the look of the BSc Development and economics presented by LSE. The link is: http://www.londoninternational.ac.uk...mics#academics . I see they also offer a one year graduate diploma in economics. Link: http://www.londoninternational.ac.uk...ates-economics . I would need to do the degree part time over the next couple of years.
I have not done any economics modules at university level but I do have a basic understanding of the economy.
I really don't know which one to apply for or if there are some other degree programs out there which would better suit my needs. Can anyone recommend a good economics degree program for me? And does anyone know of civil engineers venturing off into economics? So far I have been struggling to find other people who have done both engineering and economics.
Thanks in advance!
Have you done any of these?
