the Civil Engineering and Management programme in short

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

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 for successful results. 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. All of these factors are addressed in the CEM programme.
