Content

Modern civil engineering professionals often require an extensive understanding of construction management due to the strategic benefits it can bring to both individuals and project teams.

As the industry becomes more competitive, organisations and their clients are increasingly demanding the combined time, cost and quality assurances that good project management practice provides. Furthermore, the industry now recognises that there is a need for engineers to gain specialist technical knowledge which compliments their academic and professional background.

The programme uses experience from our internationally recognised Construction Project Management programme and combines it with our high-profile Civil Engineering postgraduate programme to provide a broad and valuable education. As a result, our recent graduates have been employed by a range of both national and international employers.

You can exit at the end of Stage 1 with PgDip Civil Engineering and Construction Management.
