In fast-growing countries around the world, there have been huge developments in urbanisation, infrastructure and city growth. The need to accommodate this growth requires a trained, professional workforce skilled at construction management and construction engineering techniques.
The MSc Construction Management meets this need with an interdisciplinary programme focused on the management of construction engineering projects. It covers advanced knowledge of management, economics, information engineering, civil engineering, environmental engineering, and technologies.
The design of this programme integrates social, economic and environmental aspects into construction engineering projects’ life cycle; and addresses the importance of sustainability in construction to ensure that construction is carried out with limited environmental impact, or adverse impact on society.
By the time you graduate from the MSc Construction Management, you will be able to:
The completion of additional learning activities is required to obtain your master degree. The programme includes a total of 600 hours of Additional Learning Activities, most of which are chosen individually by students. Normally, required ALA hours will be distributed evenly across each semester, amounting to 200 hours per semester. Part-time programmes will normally require 100 to 150 hours per semester. They should normally be spread equally over teaching semesters and the summer and winter breaks.
The construction industry in China and around the world is calling out for graduates to take on specialised managerial roles in this dynamic fast changing industry. The programme is designed to meet the growing need for professionals with advanced technical, engineering, management and applied research skills not only in the construction industry but also related industries.
