The aim of the programme is to prepare students for careers in the management of projects or major components of projects, with emphasis on solutions relevant to the construction industry. Students study construction Management, Cost Engineering, Project Management, Scheduling, Facilities Management, Operations Analysis and Management , Risk Analysis, Value Engineering, Logistics, Legal Aspects in the Building Sector, Organizational Psychology and Human Resource Management.
There is emphasis on assimilating a broad scope of diverse disciplines: construction engineering, business, law, human relations and management disciplines - through interdisciplinary and practical project work. An integrating project connects learning in adjacent subject areas and provides a practical context for academic study, bridging the gap between theory and practice. There is a large contribution to the programme from visiting professors and invited lecturers who are leading specialists in their respective fields. The research emphasis is on applied research in cooperation with the industry.
After successful completion of the programme the student is awarded the degree Master of Science in Civil engineering with specialisation in construction management. The programme is designed to meet the curriculum requirements for the professional title of chartered engineer (Icelandic: verkfræðingur), as defined by the Ministry of industry and the Association of chartered engineers in Iceland.
The MSc in Civil Engineering with Construction Management is a 120 ECTS degree and is taken over 4 semesters (2 years) of full-time study. Most courses are 6-8 ECTS, students generally take four courses each semester.
Students take 90 ECTS in specialised courses and a 30 ECTS thesis. In exceptional cases, they may take 60 ECTS in courses and a 60 ECTS thesis with a stronger research focus.
Undergraduate degreeBSc degree in Engineering. Minimum requirements in applied sciences (i.e. mathematics, physics) and in basic subjects fundamental to civil engineering (i.e. mechanics, materials science) have to be fulfilled.English language requirementsIf English is not your first language, you will need a recognised English Language qualification to be admitted onto any of the University's degree programmes.
