Construction Management is a discipline that incorporates any area of technical endeavour seeking to improve our ability to manage industrial structures, fabrication and procurement processes, and the output of buildings. In line with the mission of the Melbourne School of Design, graduate studies within Construction Management integrates the present requirements of professional training and education with the future needs of the industry, domestically as well as internationally. To this end, the Master of Construction Management at the University of Melbourne rests as much on practice as it does on theory: it is a professional degree for graduates who not only want to gain employment in the construction industry, but also want to contribute to tackling its social, technological, financial and environmental challenges.
The Master of Construction Management provides students with the possibility to organise their studies and concentrate their curricula in three different areas of specialisation:
- Cost management
- Project management
Some of these areas provide graduates with the foundation for a future career in construction or construction academia. Other areas have been designed for those returning to study from the industry, who are interested in further developing their expertise by accessing knowledge frameworks not yet broadly available in practice. Each area has its own list of core and selective subjects.
Depending on their specialisation, graduates are expected to work with general construction companies, quantity surveying organisations, project management firms, trade specialists, specialised consultants, institutional bodies and research institutions.
Course duration may not be reduced as a result of receiving advanced standing. For further details contact the Faculty.
