The master's programme in Real Estate and Construction Management consists of four terms of full-time study. The first term consists mainly of foundation courses for all students, after which it is possible to specialise according to educational background and interest. Students can choose between three profiles: Construction Project Management, Real Estate Development and Land Law, and Building and Real Estate Economics. While a few courses are mandatory for all students, most courses are conditionally elective courses. Note that a few of the conditionally elective courses in the Real Estate Development and Land Law profile are taught in Swedish.
The hands-on approach to teaching and learning implies that class projects consist of activities that will provide students with job-related skills. The department’s close links with industry, local professional bodies and a strong alumni network allow the university to continually stay abreast of current developments and integrate these into our course offerings.
The graduates from the Real Estate and Construction Management programme at KTH Royal Institute of Technology will have gained in-depth knowledge of construction project management, real estate economics and real estate development and land law, and will be trained to work in and lead projects in real estate and construction management, collaborate across disciplinary boundaries, work independently, exercise their power of initiative and create new ideas for a sustainable built environment.
Given the borderless nature of the subjects covered in the programme, graduates are trained for careers in the real estate, government and construction management sectors, both nationally and internationally. Graduates from the programme have gone on to work in organisations such as:
- Consultancy companies, banks, pension funds, insurance companies
- Property and asset management companies, development companies, real estate appraisal/valuation firms, and real estate capital groups
- Infrastructure development organisations
- Land development, cadastral and registration agencies and other related regulatory bodies and private companies
- Architectural firms, technical consultant firms, construction management firms, real estate companies, construction companies, client and facilities management organisations and public organisations.
