Why pursue a Master’s in Construction Engineering and Management?
The ever-increasing public demands on building and civil engineering of constructed facilities calls for intelligent, innovative and efficient delivery of construction services. Furthermore, the deterioration of urban infrastructure, budget limitations and public demands on higher quality services will require considerable effort to meet these future challenges. This graduate program is designed to meet these critical needs by preparing and training highly qualified engineers in the design and implementation of construction processes to deal with problems posed by the ever-decreasing resources threatening the well-being of today’s society.
The MEng in Construction Engineering and Management provides a stimulating academic environment where you will learn state-of-the-art construction processes and project management strategies, as well as project planning, scheduling and cost estimating methods. Students are introduced to a wide range of project delivery systems, risk management, value engineering, claims and alternative dispute resolution methods. Coursework places particular emphasis on sustainable development, which will enable you to further your understanding of sustainable construction practices with due consideration to economics, ethics, and professionalism.
Work alongside faculty members who regularly collaborate with members of the Concordia Institute for Information Systems Engineering, along with researchers across North America and overseas. Opportunities for interdisciplinary collaborations within the department are also available, including major areas such as civil infrastructure, sustainable building systems and environmental impact assessment.
Benefit from research facilities that are equipped with a UAS-based thermal imagery system, ground penetrating radar, ladybug spherical camera, laser scanning and more. Faculty members also oversee a number of cutting-edge research laboratories, including Construction Automation Lab Construction Engineering & Management Lab, a Structures Lab and an Environmental Engineering Lab (CFI).
Applicants to the MEng in Construction Engineering and Management must hold a bachelor's degree in engineering or architecture, or equivalent with an above-average standing. The department will recommend on the acceptability of an applicant for admission to the program and may require the applicant to do specific remedial coursework to meet the program requirements.
Students must complete 45 credits of 6000 or 7000 level courses. The courses must be selected as follows:
Eight credits from the following list of courses: CIVI 6011, CIVI 6101, CIVI 6411, CIVI 6451, CIVI 6461, CIVI 6611, CIVI 6661, BLDG 6611, BLDG 6621, BLDG 6701, BLDG 6711, BLDG 6731, BLDG 6751.
A minimum of 32 credits from the topic areas E21 and E24 in Group 1, which must include two core courses: BLDG 6571 and BLDG 6831. These groups of courses could also include special program courses put on for or by a given industry in conjunction with the Faculty.
The remaining credits can be chosen from the Engineering Courses section, which include E72 (MBA courses) other than the courses listed in (1) and (2).
