the programme in short

New techniques, shifting roles, complicated logistics and globalization are having a major impact on the nature of construction projects. Complex, innovative and multidisciplinary projects in a dynamic environment call for a new breed of engineers who are able to expertly combine engineering knowledge with management skills.

The Master's programme in Construction Management and Engineering (CME) can train you to be just such an engineer. A hands-on expert who is able to combine the technical aspects of civil engineering projects with the non-technical dimension.

key areas of study

The 3TU Master’s programme in CME uses cutting-edge technology to dissect and understand processes which integrate governance issues, societal trends and management methodologies. Key areas of study in the University of Twente’s CME programme include sustainable building, public-private governance, industrialization in engineering and construction, supply chain management and risk management. This broad programme has been developed in close association with the construction industry and is not only project-based but also geared to process and design.

The Master’s in Construction Management and Engineering is a full-time, two-year programme worth 120 credits (EC). With its clear international orientation, this English-taught programme will enable you to tackle the construction sector’s key problems, which are international in scope and affected by global trends. On graduation you will earn the title of Master of Science (MSc).
