Focus And Disciplines

The Civil Engineering and Management Master’s is the premier programme in the Netherlands to focus extensively on both the technical and non-technical aspects of planning, design, realization and maintenance of civil engineering projects and systems.

Research And Specialization

High-speed rail, the Betuwe freight railway, dike improvements and the ‘Manhattan on the Meuse’ development project in Rotterdam are all technically feasible projects. Technology, however, is not the only determining factor in the result. Many other factors need to be taken into account early in the planning phase of real estate and infrastructure projects: policy, political interests, participation and permits, land expropriation, environmental impact studies, costs, budgeting and price control, logistic efficiency and safety.

Career Prospects

The job market requires engineers who are true process thinkers, and who can oversee, analyse and predict all aspects of the design and execution of civil engineering projects. The Master’s in Civil Engineering and Management will train you to be just such an engineer.

You will become an engineering professional who is capable of combining the technical and non-technical aspects of major infrastructure and construction projects.

Why opt for civil engineering and management?

The professional field appreciates the broad scope of UT’s Civil Engineering and Management programme because our graduates have that extra bit to offer compared to traditional, more technically oriented civil engineers.

You can choose from two Civil Engineering Master’s programmes at the University of Twente depending on your individual interests and your previous education and background. 

Civil Engineering and Management is a broad technical Master’s programme that offers you the opportunity to refine your technical skills in one of four specializations i.e. Construction Management and Engineering, Water Engineering and Management, Transportation Engineering and Management or Integrated Civil Engineering Systems.

If you are particulary interested in the management side of major construction projects, then our 3TU programme Construction Management and Engineering, is the ideal choice for you, in which you can also take courses on this topic at one of the other technical universities in The Netherlands.
