Digital Engineering Management MSc

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 and beyond.

The programme addresses the industry need for responding to digital transformation through a socio-technical approach. Digital engineering describes the integration of various digital technologies, such as mixed realities, big data analytics and Building Information Modelling (BIM), Internet of Things (IoT) that transform construction and other capital industries. The students will be taught through an engineering management framework, encompassing the following knowledge areas:

  • Organisation – understanding how firms are transformed by digital innovations,
  • Project and process – learning socio-technical skills for engineering management,
  • Engineering – constructing the digital thread across the lifecycle using various digital tools.
