Why Construction Management & Engineering at the University of Twente?

Today's construction industry is changing fast. New techniques, shifting roles, complex logistics and globalization are only some of the factors affecting the nature and management of projects. These complex, innovative and multidisciplinary challenges call for a new breed of manager able to expertly combine engineering and organization skills. Do you want to contribute to this fast developing world? Then Construction Management and Engineering is the ideal choice for you.

There are several features that make the Construction Management and Engineering Master’s at the UT stand out from similar programmes at other universities. For example:

  • A UNIQUE MULTIDISCIPLINARY APPROACH, COMBINING ENGINEERING AND MANAGEMENT

Large construction projects are becoming more and more complex. These projects can only be completed by teams of people with a variety of skills, all working together. You can only effectively manage construction projects by bridging multiple disciplines and making sure risks are predicted and controlled.  This Master’s programme focuses extensively on these and many other non-technical aspects of planning, realizing and managing major construction engineering projects and systems. About 80% of the courses are related to non-technical subjects, such as project and process management, asset management and tendering.

Demand for multidisciplinary professionals is quickly rising both in the Netherlands and internationally.
