Program description

International Construction Management is part of the Bachelor study program Architecture and Construction Engineering.

The International Civil Engineering Management program prepares you to become a civil engineer. Engineers trained in the Netherlands are in high repute abroad. That is why one encounters Dutch contractors and engineering firms on many European projects. In order to work successfully as a civil engineer in foreign countries, you of course have to learn to speak the language there. But you must also be acquainted with the way of working and the company culture in other countries. In that way you learn to be in charge of civil engineering projects both at home and abroad.

This two-year program combines a thorough theoretical basis with practical experience. You will visit building projects, work on realistic problems taken from professional practice and regularly attend lectures by guest speakers. You will also receive project management module while following this program to help you to manage civil engineering projects both at home and abroad.

International Construction Management the Program for you?

You are creative and have an eye for detail. You are good at calculating, communicating and running things. You like to work according to plan and construction appeals to you. Moreover, you fancy working and studying abroad. In that case the program International Construction Management (ICM) is sure to be right up your street. ICM trains you to become a construction engineer who is also able to work in an international setting. After your studies, you know all about building materials, techniques, calculations, structures and European building regulations. You speak one or more foreign languages and consult principals, subcontractors, advisors and authorities. You work in an international branch of industry, leaving its mark on our surroundings.

The European unification also takes shape in the construction industry. Large building projects and government enterprises are put out to tender in Europe. And also the free exchange of trade and labour sees to it that real estate developers and construction firms are increasingly active abroad. That is a good thing, but it means that they certainly need to be very well up in the language, culture and the various building processes and regulations. As an International Construction Management graduate you are able to play an important part here.
