About

This International Construction Management and Engineering degree from University of Leeds has been created to help construction professionals develop and enhance the project management skills required in the construction industry.

Overview

You’ll prepare for the challenges of the changing and increasingly global construction industry with a focus on the financial, planning and management aspects of a project life cycle. You’ll explore construction processes from inception and feasibility, design, contact and construction through to commissioning, maintenance, renewal and decommissioning. The philosophy of the course is to develop a “whole life” understanding of constructed facilities and infrastructure.

A choice of optional modules will allow you to strengthen existing technical and engineering skills, or gain an understanding of a new topic. The International Construction Management and Engineering degree from University of Leeds offers you the opportunity to undertake projects in a multi-disciplinary environment, with access to the expertise in the School's research themes.

Our specialist facilities will also support your studies, such as bench-top testing facilities to look at the fundamental behaviour of material soils and testing rigs for full-scale structures. We have all the specialist software you’ll need for your programme, and you’ll have access to a dedicated study suite for Masters students.

Students wishing to acquire and further their knowledge regarding the management side of engineering projects will have an opportunity to do so via the Engineering Project Management MSc (Eng) which focuses on the project life-cycle. Should further technical engineering and management expertise be sought then this option is also available through the International Construction Management and Engineering MSc (Eng) which focuses on the whole-life cycle.

Career opportunities

Upon graduation you may expect to find employment in a range of roles across the construction industry, as a construction manager, planning engineer or project manager among many others. Opportunities also exist with multidisciplinary consulting organisations, while many of our graduates return to work for government agencies and other large client organisations.

Our graduates have gone on to develop careers with organisations worldwide including Ministry of Prisons KSA, Ove Arup and Partners Hong Kong, African Development Bank, Ghana Highways Authority, TATA Steel, Network Rail, Turner & Townsend, Mace Group, M+W Shanghai Co., Damac Properties, China State Railways and Keller Ground Engineering.
