What we're researching

Our research focuses on the key area of construction management. Our research is up to date with the most demanding and challenging areas of the construction management industry. Our academic team consists of many experienced people, from both academia and industry, so you can be sure what you are studying is theory-practice and reflects the most up to date practice. 

Dr Sohrab Donyavi who teaches on construction management is an expert in the area of Project Management, Procurement and Technology. His current area of research is on the field of improving site productivity by using different methods such as Information Communication Technology (ICT) or other templates to minimise human error on construction projects.

He has been working on various construction projects in the UK and other countries besides his academic life to expand his practical knowledge in different construction projects, particularly in construction management. He brings to the department extensive practical and industrial experiences including research and academic skills. 

Professor Roger Flanagan is a well known expert in the field of construction management nationally and internationally. He teaches at and visits many universities and schools of construction management around the world such as Hong Kong, China, Malaysia, Sydney, USA, Sweden, South Africa, Istanbul, UK and many others.

He has been the past president of Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) and holds many other responsibilities in construction management areas; he will be with us to cover many zones such as international business and organisational management. He has published books and many other publications.

Mr Mike Hurst who has been involved with the industry for many years including teaching and writing academic books also will assist us with the course. He has a lot of experience and knowledge towards sustainability, organization management and other areas of construction. 

Professor Allan J Brimicombe is an expert in geo-information. He pioneered the use of geo-information systems and environmental simulation modelling.  His other research interests include data quality issues, spatial data mining and analysis, predictive analytics and location-based services (LBS). He has been a specialist adviser to the House of Lords and has many different publications.  

The programme offers several optional and core modules encompassing different areas of Construction Engineering Management. The range of modules on offer is fairly extensive. Please see below for information.

Teaching is complimented by coursework and project assignments, to most modules as part of the programme. These are intended to enable you to develop your management judgement and decision making skills and to have opportunities to apply acquired knowledge to the development of practical solutions and critically evaluate different options in the process.

Students cover both individual and /or group projects and some of them have industrial involvement. The final core module will provide the opportunity of performing a supervised research dissertation acquiring and developing original knowledge in a specific area of Construction Engineering Management.
