The Construction Management and Engineering (CME) and Architecture Engineering programmes develops knowledge, tools, and methods that can add value to construction projects and organizations with a focus on risk management. In mature industries such as construction successfully managing risk largely determines the success or failure of development projects and enterprises. By developing basic risk management skills and participating in leading edge research students can position themselves to make enormous differences in for-profit, government, and non-profit development organizations. Understanding the nature and structure of development risk provides a foundation for modeling, quantifying, and mitigating those risks.
Large construction projects are becoming more and more complicated. These projects can only be completed by teams of people with a variety of skills, all working together. You can only effectively manage construction projects by making sure that the risks that are always part and parcel of such projects are predicted and controlled. Sound like a worthwhile challenge? Then this might be just the programme for you!
