Research programme

The key feature of the Centre is that it is interdisciplinary: our staff and students are drawn from all sides of the construction industry and its professions, including lawyers (barristers and solicitors), engineers, surveyors and other related professionals, as well as those with dual qualifications in a range of fields. Another important aspect of the Centre's approach is its international character: to encourage dialogue between students and staff from all regions of the world on construction issues.  Our intensive weekend modules foster participation by out of town students.

For further information on our MSc programme, please see the online prospectus.
