Program Description

MSc Civil Engineering and Management

University of Twente

The Civil Engineering and Management Master's degree course focuses on both the technical and non technical aspects of civil engineering objects and systems.

The Civil Engineering and Management Master's degree course focuses extensively on both the technical and non technical aspects of planning, design, realisation and maintenance of civil engineering objects and systems.

The high-speed train, the Betuwe freight railway, dike improvements and the ‘Manhattan on the Meuse’ development project in Rotterdam are all technologically feasible projects. Technology, however, is not the only determining factor in the result. Political policy, participation and permission procedures, land expropriation, environmental impact studies, costing, budgeting and price control, logistic efficiency, safety and many other factors must be taken into account early in the plan development of real estate and infrastructure projects. It demands engineers who have mastered the process and who can oversee, analyse and predict all aspects of the design and execution of civil engineering projects.
