Construction Management and Engineering

At Reading we study the design, construction and operation of the buildings and places within which we live, work and play. We work across scales, from buildings to neighbourhoods to cities, spanning local and global, historic and contemporary built environments.

You can build and shape your future with us. Whether it's taking one of our degree courses, furthering your skills and experience through one of our postgraduate courses, or joining our team, you will be part of a top-ranking department, where the impact of our research feeds directly into our teaching.

"Coming to Reading was the best decision of my life. It offers the best of networking, exposure to industry, diversity, and knowledge."
