MSc Construction Management and Engineering
The master program Construction Management and Engineering (CME) addresses the growing need for reform in the construction industry. The program offers a broad spectrum of courses to prepare the student for the dynamic environment of the construction business by focusing on management aspects of large engineering projects during design, project execution and maintenance. Core themes that CME addresses are integral & collaborative design processes, optimisation of project management, risk & asset management throughout the design and life-cycle, as well as the legal & financial aspects of construction projects.
CME is an interfaculty program that combines the relevant expertise of the faculties of Civil Engineering & Geosciences (CEG), Architecture & the Built Environment (ABE) and Technology, Policy & Management (TPM). Through the shared expertise and collaboration of the three faculties CME offers its students a unique programme that provides the competences required to combine engineering knowledge with management skills and prepares future engineers for exciting jobs in today’s demanding construction projects in an international context.

What you will learn
➨ Learn to apply, design, and develop systems and strategies for asset and project management in the construction industry.
➨ Combine managerial competences with engineering skills to maximize the value of the construction industry for society.
➨ Develop skills to lead, steer, and serve construction management and engineering processes.
➨ Learn to collaborate and communicate effectively in interaction with diverse talents, skills, characters, and cultural backgrounds to optimise team performance.
➨ Learn how to make decisions involving uncertainty based on assumptions, risks, and data.
➨ Develop information systems aimed at improving the performance of the construction industry.
➨ Gain the expertise and perspectives from three different TU Delft faculties and follow courses at UT and TU/e, our 4TU CME partners.
The four 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 CME collaboration. As a part of this collaboration the master CME can be followed at Delft University of Technology, Eindhoven University of Technology and University of Twente, each with their own focus and expertise. Students doing the Master CME at either location can choose electives and get graduation supervision at any of the three universities.
