Construction management is one of the most rapidly expanding sectors of specialisation in Australia. Construction management specialists have very good job prospects in both construction and infrastructure work areas. The particular mix of skills offered in this degree combine traditional project management frameworks along with specialised preparation in technological advancements and human factors that are a requirement for successful managers in the construction industry.
The Construction Management course from University of Technology Sydney utilises concepts associated with the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®) as applied in the construction context. Key areas of construction management are covered in the course including: construction technology and regulations; time, cost and quality management; risk; professional ethics; industrial relations; communication; and contract administration. Student learning establishes underpinning construction management theory that is strongly supported by best practice case studies delivered by leading academics and practitioners, giving students access to relevant, real-world expertise that reflects the realities of today's construction sector. Through the use of digital technologies students receive hands-on experience with real-world estimating, programming and building information modelling (BIM) platforms. Students gain further knowledge in contracts administration, integrated project delivery, and communication and stakeholder management with the option to build specialist knowledge in a chosen elective subject.
The course is aimed primarily at career changers, in particular those from other built environment industries interested in expanding their portfolio of skills. Career options include a range of management roles related to the construction sector, such as project, construction, design, environmental, site, contract or facility management; construction economics; quantity surveying; construction programming, cost engineering, estimating or property development.
