Course content

There has been a radical digital shift in the built environment sector, particularly in construction. The Digital Engineering Management MSc responds to the ongoing industry need for greater understanding and analysis for how pioneering digital technologies shape and are shaped by organisations, projects and supply chains. This innovative and much-needed programme addresses this digital gap by developing leaders and managers for the built environment sector.

The programme will teach you both the basics of innovative digital technologies in the built environment at a practical level and also their managerial implications at theoretical and applied levels.

The programme addresses the transformation of construction due to digital engineering beyond skills development, but also through understanding how digitalisation influences the management of engineering, innovation and technology, drawing upon the premise that technology is a socio-technical construct.

Because digital engineering is not constant but instead continuously evolving, this programme will provide the theoretical and practical tools to address these challenges, where decisions have to be made in uncertainty, following an engineering management framework.
