    What will I study?

    Overview

    The Master of Construction Management is a 300 point or 3-year program.

    The first 100 points (1 year) is made up of foundation study tailored to students from non-construction backgrounds. Students from cognate backgrounds, such as construction management, and semi-cognate backgrounds, such as architecture or civil engineering, have usually completed appropriate studies that will allow them to receive credit for up to the first year of the program, reducing the duration to 2 or 2.5 years.

    Our construction management students study several core and elective subjects, which enables them to focus on their chosen area of specialisation. Regardless of whether you are starting your career in construction or coming from industry to further develop your expertise, you will find a specialisation that suits your career aspirations.

    To enable credit/advanced standing to be assessed at the time of application, you will need to supply the official subject description for each subject which you are seeking credit.
