The objective is to equip engineering managers with skills to conduct project viability analysis in a dynamic and fluid environment. This often involve inputs from allied professionals in finance and legal to accurately develop a project cashflow profile for sensitivity and scenario analysis to best ascertain the project viability and overall risk.
- Graduate Certificate in Construction Management
- FlexiMasters in Construction Management
Date(s): 29 to 20 Sep 2023
Time: 29 Sep & 6, 13, 20 Oct 2023 / 6.30pm – 9.30pm
Venue: NTU Campus, LT17
Registration Closing Date: 08 Sep 2023
At the end of the course, learner will be able to:
1. construct and update cashflow diagrams for project viability analysis;
2. convert cashflow diagrams into different equivalent profiles for monitoring;
3. use economic measures such as IRR, NPV and NUV to develop an opinion;
4. recommend a project investment decision and conduct sensitivity analysis and;
5. gain insight into the use of incremental analysis and when projects have cashflows with disbursements only.
Economic evaluation of engineering projects using net present value, net uniform value and internal rate of return are used. The investment decision relating a minimum acceptable rate of return and conversions of cashflow diagrams into profiles for analysis are key foundations when assessing Public-Private-Partnership (PPP) and Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) infrastructure projects.
Working professionals who wish to develop skills that can be used in the Construction industry to aid in project management and other construction activities.

Dr Tiong is an Associate Professor in School of Civil & Environmental Engineering, as well as Deputy Director of Centre for Infrastructure Systems at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. He is the Program Director of the MSc Programme in International Construction Management since its inception in 1991.
Dr Tiong graduated in 1981 from University of Glasgow with First Class Honours in Civil Engineering, with specialisation in management. He obtained his M.Eng on Construction Engineering & Management, from University of California, Berkeley in 1987 and his PhD in 1994 from NTU. His research and consulting interests focus on integrated risk analysis and economics, financing, management, and project procurement for infrastructure projects. More recently, he has focussed on catastrophe risk management, alternative risk transfer and financing for natural hazards and catastrophes such as floods and earthquakes.
He has published extensively including a monograph on “The Structuring of Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) Projects”, a research report on “Evaluation of risks in BOT projects”, and a book chapter on “Public-Private Partnership for Infrastructure Projects: An Asian Dimension”. He was also a reviewer for the UNIDO Guidelines for the Development, Negotiation, and Contracting of BOT Projects.
He has worked with the Asian Development Bank and the World Bank on risk analysis and management of infrastructure projects. Recently, he has been involved in the study of Clean Energy Development and Carbon Credit Finance for hydro-power projects in developing countries such as Vietnam.
