Home / Academics / Field of Engineering Sciences / Academic Programs / Engineering & Construction Management

This degree has been created to help construction professionals develop and enhance project management skills required in the construction industry, with the aim of developing a “full-life” understanding of the facilities and infrastructure created

  • Addressing the challenges of the increasingly changing and growing construction industry with emphasis on the financial, planning and management aspects of the project life cycle.
  • Exploring construction processes from the outset, feasibility, design, communication and construction through commissioning, maintenance, refurbishment and shutdown.
  • To keep pace with scientific and technological progress in the field of the profession and coordination with related disciplines
  • Select appropriate and sustainable technologies for construction of buildings, infrastructures and water structures; using either numerical techniques or physical measurements and/or testing by applying a full range of civil engineering concepts and techniques of: Structural Analysis and Mechanics, Properties and Strength of Materials, Surveying, Soil Mechanics and Fluid Mechanics.
  • Achieve an optimum design of Reinforced Concrete and Steel Structures, Foundations and Earth Retaining Structures, Transportation and Traffic, Roadways and Airports, Railways, Sanitary Works, Irrigation, Water Resources and Harbors; or any other emerging field relevant to the discipline.
  • Plan and manage construction processes; address construction defects, instability and quality issues; and maintain safety measures in construction and materials.
  • Deal with biddings, contracts and financial issues including project insurance and guarantees; and assess environmental impacts of civil engineering projects.
  • Use the principles of engineering, soil science, biology, and chemistry to develop solutions to environmental problems.
  • Improve recycling, waste disposal, public health, and water and air pollution control. Address global issues, such as unsafe drinking water, climate change, and environmental sustainability.
  • Management of construction projects in accordance with plans and specifications.
  • Responsibility for the safety of temporary structures used during construction.
  • Overseeing budgetary and time-management aspects of projects
