New MSc in Digital Engineering Management launches to meet industry challenges
5 November 2019
Applications are now open for our new master’s degree in Digital Engineering Management, addressing the transformative impact of innovative digital technologies in the built environment sector.
From autumn 2020, the Bartlett School of Construction and Project Management’s MSc in Digital Engineering Management will begin training the next generation of decision makers in the built environment, uniquely equipping them with an understanding of engineering management through a digital lens.
Pioneering digital technologies are increasingly shaping the built environment – the construction sector needs a greater understanding of how these technologies can be effectively integrated into existing processes, and how they will shape the future of the industry.
Our new master’s degree in Digital Engineering Management will lead the way by responding to this need. This course will provide students with the tools to address the challenges of a continuously evolving digital landscape within an engineering management framework.
The course will teach students both the basics of these innovative digital technologies at a skills levels, as well as their managerial implications at a theoretical level. Students will gain a unique perspective of digitalisation in the built environment and lead their own research in collaboration with industry partners.
Dr Eleni Papadonikolaki, Lecturer in Building Information Modelling and Management and course director, comments:
“I’m very pleased to announce the launch of the new MSc Digital Engineering Management. This follows an exciting and fruitful year of industry engagement and researching how to best educate engineering and business graduates about digital transformation in the built environment. The new MSc does so through an engineering management lens – that is an intersection of project management, organisational studies and engineering – and a mixture of teacher- and student-led pedagogical techniques.”
Applications are now open for students joining in autumn 2020. The course will initially be taught across UCL’s Bloomsbury campus and at Here East in Stratford.
