Department of Construction Economics and Management

Construction Economics & Management deals with facets of the built environment, primarily economic considerations, management principles, applicable law and the governing science and technology. The department is geared towards capacity building in the areas of planning, designing, construction, asset valuation, and management of all asset types of residential, commercial and industrial developments.

The Construction Economics & Management department at the College of Engineering, Design, Art and Technology started in 2004 with 67 students. Currently, the student population stands at about 600 students, making the department undoubtedly one of the fastest growing at the college.

This department is vindicated by the fact that whereas specialists such as architects and engineers are required in any construction project, eventually the successful physical execution depends on the expertise of those with the appropriate management skills, a command of cost planning and cost management techniques, and a thorough understanding of the administrative and legal aspects of the building developments. This is what forms the core of Construction Economics and Management.

It is expected that a graduate who has passed through this department will:

  1. Have an excellent understanding of the principles of management, economics, construction technology, asset valuation/management, and environment engineering.
  2. Be proficient communicators with well-developed planning and problem-solving skills, able to work positively in a team situation.
  3. Be able to analyze the kinds of problems that will confront senior managers, policy advisers and decision makers in any branch of the construction industry and come up with the appropriate remedies.
