Course overview

The Master of Construction Management (Professional) will extend the specialised construction management skills and attributes obtained in the Master of Construction Management.


The suite of postgraduate construction management courses is designed to provide the specialist skills related to the theoretical, policy, evaluative and research frameworks that underpin the construction professions. The course provides a challenging environment in which you will be encouraged to develop your understanding, knowledge and skills, and inculcated with a sense of being an independent learner in your career.


Students will work in a multi-disciplinary context with topics that are at the forefront of the built environment industry, such as: Project Feasibility Evaluation, Cost Planning, Professional Business Practice, Construction Measurement, Commercial Construction Organisation, Design Management, Legal Risk Management, Sustainability, Urban Ecologies and Strategic Construction Procurement.


Units in the course may include assessment hurdle requirements.

Career opportunities

As a graduate of this course, you will find career opportunities in the fields of quantity surveying, project management and construction management with a wide range of employers, including construction companies and consultancies. You will also be qualified for relevant positions in client organisations, in the property development arms of government departments, and in commercial companies such as banks, retailers and manufacturers.


Construction management professionals are generally highly mobile and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) accreditation provides an immediate, readily recognised international qualification. Graduates who wish to do so will be able to pursue their careers in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and North America.  This course is relevant to experienced mid career construction professionals who are seeking to extend themselves into future leadership positions within the industry.
