About

The Masters programme in Management in the Building Industry gives you insight into all phases of modern construction; from ideas about shape and use to project design, construction, management, operation, and maintenance. Besides the technical aspects, the programme also covers fields such as organisation, economics, project management, working environment, logistics, and information technology.

Thus, the Aalborg University programme in Management in the Building Industry focuses on the whole in both the construction project and in the construction company.

Cooperation with the industry

An important element in the Masters programme in Management in the Building Industry is cooperation with the industry. Almost all projects are carried out in cooperation with companies and knowledge organisations within the construction industry. Also, the programme has a close connection to the development initiatives within the building sector.

Experience shows that problem-based project work in cooperation with companies is fruitful for both parts; as a student you learn how to combine theory and practice, and the company gets valuable new input on both existing and future challenges. Thus, the programme gives you an academic understanding of the phases of construction. As a graduate from Management in the Building Industry, you are therefore well equipped to meet the demands of modern construction.

The Master of Science and Technology programme allows for a series of different career opportunities.
