Construction management

DISCIPLINE

Overview

Construction management is a professional discipline concerned with the effective procurement of built facilities in the context of time, cost and quality objectives, and the growing imperative for sustainable development. Courses comprise an excellent mix of hands-on practice and theory, and integrated studies in technology and building management.

As part of the course, I have had the opportunity to study in Jonkoping, Sweden for a trimester as part of the 'Study Abroad' program.
