About the course
The construction industry has always required efficient technical and financial project administrators, and this need is even greater in today's financial climate. Construction and infrastructure projects must run efficiently on all fronts, and managers must be able to plan, execute and supervise jobs with professional skill in areas where each new technological advance creates a need for new techniques, methods and equipment.
The main aim of this program is to prepare graduates for future roles in managing people, equipment, materials, technological processes and funds in the construction, building and maintenance of buildings and assets in the civil infrastructure. This aim is facilitated by the study of advanced management and engineering techniques in the fields of construction, building and maintenance.
