Construction Engineering degrees abroad

Construction engineering refers to the planning, designing, and management of building projects. It’s a multidisciplinary field that borrows concepts from other specialties, including structural and civil engineering, project management, site analysis, and materials science.

After developing a robust understanding of the scientific and mathematical principles behind safe construction, you’ll sharpen your skills in computer-aided design and cost analysis. You’ll also hone the leadership and professional abilities needed to guide teams on major infrastructure projects, like roads, tunnels, bridges, and dams.

By earning your degree overseas, you’ll see how different landscapes, climates, and cultures influence construction engineering projects. The international portfolio and connections you build will give you a headstart in the graduate job market.

Construction Engineering program structure

Bachelor’s degrees in construction engineering are studied over three or four years. The precise length of your program will depend on where you study and whether you complete an industry placement. Sandwich years are a superb chance to sample future careers and gain hands-on experience.

Deciding to study in the US means you’ll likely major in construction engineering. Most US universities follow the four-year liberal arts model of education. This means you’ll take two years of general education classes before concentrating on major-specific courses.

Lots of students progress onto postgraduate programs after finishing their bachelor’s degree. Master’s programs can be studied over one or two years, while doctoral degrees will add another four to six years on top.

Learning methods include a combination of theoretical lectures, seminars, and tutorials, as well as practical workshops and computer laboratories. You’ll be assessed through a mixture of exams, written assignments, presentations, and research projects.

Here are some of the core units you’ll probably study as part of your construction engineering course:

  • Principles of construction planning and design
  • Construction materials and methods
  • Construction project management
  • Computer-aided design (CAD)
  • Mathematical skills for construction engineers
  • Construction estimating and cost analysis
  • Construction engineering research methods
  • Construction technologies and equipment
