Why choose this course?

This industry-accredited course is tailored to civil and/or structural engineers wishing to become senior managers in both consulting engineering and contracting organisations, and is ideal for graduate engineers starting their career in the construction industry. The Structural Design and Construction Management Masters course successfully combines structural engineering with advanced construction management, which will enable you to perform at a managerial level for a consultant or contractor. The course is led by a Chartered Structural Engineer with industrial and academic experience. Academic teaching is complemented by experts from leading civil/ structural engineering consultancies and construction companies, enabling you to develop a wider perspective and understanding of the worldwide issues facing the construction industry.
