About

Megaprojects are increasingly important for solving 21st century problems – from developing carbon-neutral fuels to preventing a future global recession.

The group's research and teaching seek to identify new ways of understanding these challenges and helping business, government and society to overcome them.

Members of the group conduct leading-edge, multidisciplinary research on megaproject management, bringing together expertise in business, policy, engineering, computer science, economics, law, planning, the environment and more. 

As well as carrying out research in this field, the group offers an MSc in Major Programme Management, the first of its kind in the world. The teaching team also delivers executive education, tailor-made for corporate and government clients.
