Program overview

The MEng in Construction Engineering and Management trains engineers in the design and implementation of construction processes. Civil engineering calls for intelligent, innovative and efficient delivery of construction services. Students are introduced to a wide range of project delivery systems, risk management, value engineering and alternative dispute resolution methods. Coursework places particular emphasis on sustainable development. You will learn about state-of-the-art construction methods and project management strategies, as well as project planning, scheduling and cost estimation methods. Our research facilities are equipped with thermal imagery systems, ground penetrating radar, ladybug spherical cameras, laser scanning and more. Faculty members also oversee a number of cutting-edge research laboratories, including Construction Engineering Management Group. This program prepares you for a career and leadership role in the public and private sectors.
