Construction project management is a highly challenging role, requiring skilled individuals with the ability to lead and integrate a multi-disciplinary team of professionals.

Increasingly complex organisational structures coupled with rapid technological change require project managers to be aware of, and appreciate the need for, sophisticated communications systems.

This Masters course will give you the knowledge and practical skills required to undertake a variety of project management roles in the construction and property sectors after graduation. As the course addresses projects from the perspectives of both demand and supply, it is also ideally suited for individuals from other sectors involved in the procurement of built assets, for example, on behalf of project sponsors in the public sector.

Close partnerships with industry and practice ensure the course – and our graduates – are responsive to the changing needs of industry, government, local communities and professional practice.

The course is taught through a mixture of lectures, tutorials, seminars, projects and field study visits.

The intention is to provide a stimulating and challenging programme of study resulting in the development of self-reliant, versatile, enterprising and competent construction project managers.

The programme will offer the appropriate type and level of support as you build the knowledge, understanding and skills to become an independent learner for the future. It even enables you to exercise some choice as to what you study in relation to your own background, interests or career aspirations.

The specific aims of the programme are to:

  • develop and/or extend your exposure to the current and emerging theories and practice of project management specifically in a construction and engineering industry context
  • encourage a risk management approach to problem solving
  • provide opportunities for collaborative and individual student-centred study, developing analytical, critical, problem solving and research skills appropriate to the role of a construction project manager
  • provide clear career development opportunities to aspiring cognate and non-cognate project managers within the construction and engineering sector
  • develop and/or extend your exposure to current and emerging principles and practice within a global construction industry
