About

The Construction Economics and Management programme offered at the University College London (UCL) quips graduates with the skills to become senior managers, policy advisers and decision-makers in any branch of the construction industry.

Overview

The first of its kind in the UK, this renowned Construction Economics and Management programme offered at the University College London (UCL) can provide researchers and teachers in these subject areas with professional academic development.

This Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) accredited programme aims to develop students' knowledge and skills under two mutually supporting themes, for which the School of Construction and Project Management has an international reputation:

  • the economics and finance of construction at project, firm and industry levels
  • the management of construction projects and enterprises
  • Construction is taken in its widest sense to include design, infrastructure and the supply chain.

Teaching and learning

The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, seminars and group work on case studies, exercises and problems. Lectures include industry and academic guest speakers. Assessment is through written examination, term papers and the dissertation.

Careers

The career options for graduates are varied, and many students go on to work for construction, engineering and design enterprises, professional consultants and commercial research organisations, and client enterprises with significant project portfolios such as retailers or banks. Graduates have been recruited by many of the UK's very best construction-sector firms. The MSc can be used as a foundation for MPhil/PhD research.
