user 19


The nature of many civil engineering projects means that there is a need for today’s engineers to have a good 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. These observations form the basis of the MSc in Civil Engineering and Construction Management; an essential core of construction management material augmented by a broad range of specialist civil engineering options.
