Master of Construction (Construction Project Management)

Enhance your career

Join the Master of Construction (Construction Project Management) – one of the first construction-focused management programmes in New Zealand.

The Master of Construction (Construction Project Management) is one of the first construction-focused management programmes in New Zealand. 

It will provide you with the sound management skills and techniques necessary for the successful completion of complex construction projects.

120-credit option

You can complete the Master of Construction with 120 credits of study if you enter via one of these Advanced Entry pathways:

  • a Bachelor of Construction plus two years of professional experience; or
  • a Bachelor of Construction (Honours); or
  • a four-year Bachelor with Honours degree in a construction-related field.

Key project management skills

Your learning focuses on front-end general project management issues such as development, finance, planning and scheduling, contract and stakeholders management. 

The programme provides both disciplinary and integrative education in the areas of constructability, costs, scheduling and ethics.

Research-led learning from industry experts

You will learn from senior faculty members and industry experts. The university lecturers and supervisors come from a range of relevant sectors. The wide mix of expertise allows for you to have meaningful exchanges and interaction at the postgraduate level.

A global perspective

You’ll gain a global perspective of the social, political and ethical influences on construction. You’ll learn how to overlay these in your decision-making process.

Your learning takes place in an environment of diversity, integrity and transparency. The environment replicates and reflects the standards of the construction management profession itself. 

You will learn how to lead relevant local, national, and global outreach and engagement. You’ll be able to optimise benefits to the industry and community.

The skills you learn will make you a valuable resource for local communities. And, for the New Zealand economy, the construction management profession and the built environment.
