Course summary

Explore how building and infrastructure projects can be sustainably delivered in developing and emerging economies with our MSc Construction Management and International Development programme.

This interdisciplinary master’s course underscores the complexity of sustainable development, and focuses on development in countries undergoing rapid urbanisation.

Working with academics from our School of Construction Management and Engineering, you will learn how to manage construction programmes for sustainable development. You will also learn how to apply sustainable development principles in an integrated and holistic way across scales – from buildings, to neighbourhoods, to cities.

By understanding the frameworks that underpin the processes of design, construction, and implementation, you will be able to apply these processes in areas of rapid urbanisation – areas where there is an urgent need for infrastructure development projects to be responsive, inclusive, and sustainable.


During your studies, you will also consider the current state of the sector. For example, you will examine the capacity and capability of the construction industry - and individual companies - to manage and deliver international development programmes. As you study the changing nature and practice in the management, policy and environment of the construction sector - and specifically international development - you will develop an understanding of the challenges and opportunities currently facing the field.

WHAT CAREER CAN YOU HAVE?

A master’s in construction management and international development is suitable for careers in both the public and private sectors, including:

  • central governmental agencies
  • local and regional governments
  • non-governmental organisations
  • major international construction companies that are seeking to develop their international market in emerging economies
  • construction firms and construction clients that employ international firms.
