Master in Construction Management and Engineering
The two year, English taught master program Construction Management and Engineering (CME) offers a broad spectrum of courses focusing on the growing need for reform in the building industry. The program prepares the student for a life in the dynamic environment of the construction business by focusing on knowledge of processes, lifecycle and risk management ; and contracts to name a few.
What you will learn
A degree in CME will leave the student with an extensive knowledge in the field of management and communication with courses such as cross-cultural management, financial engineering and project management playing an important role. The students participating in this program not only develop their engineering, problem solving and communication skills but also learn how to achieve desired changes in the building industry and assess the consequences for the construction process and its organization.
Construction Management and Engineering is multidisciplinary, international orientated and is a cooperation between the faculties of Civil Engineering, Architecture and Technology, Policy and Management.
Almost all of the CME students have fond work within 3 months of graduation. CME graduates typically accept positions as management trainees at large companies within the building industry, but also in other sectors. Many currently work in large multinationals such as Shell, and in consultancy firms like McKinsey, but most of them work at large (international) engineering firms like Van Oort, Royal Haskoning, Heijmans, DHV, PRC, Ballast Nedam and BAM.
CME graduates are equally comfortable speaking to technical experts and engineers, as to management, and often work in interdisciplinary environments. They have a systematic approach to problem solving, think analytically, discern linkage between technical and social aspects of a situation, and are adept at recognizing common patterns linking issues across domain boundaries.
Recommendations by professionals
The MSc CME programme is highly regarded by working professionals in the construction sector as well as in other (technical) fiels. To read comments on the programme, see the testimonials offered by Alumni, professionals working in the field and Professors.
