What you will learn

A degree in CME will provide the student with an extensive knowledge in the field of management and communication with courses such as cross-cultural management, financial engineering and project management playing an important role. The students participating in this program not only develop their engineering, problem solving and communication skills but also learn how to achieve desired changes in the building industry and assess the consequences for the construction process and it’s organisation.

Construction Management and Engineering is multidisciplinary, international orientated and is a cooperation between the faculties of Civil Engineering, Architecture and the Built Environment and Technology, Policy and Management.  


The four leading universities of technology in the Netherlands – Delft University of Technology, Eindhoven University of Technology, Wageningen University and the University of Twente – have joined forces in the 4TU Federation. This federation maximizes innovation by combining and concentrating the strengths of all four universities in research, education and knowledge transfer. The CME program is part of this 4TU collaboration.

The master CME is organised as one coherent program at each of the four locations. However, the program can be adapted to suit individual needs, which means that students can sign up for electives at any of the three universities.
