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.
Fee Paying Place - International (IFP)
A Fee Paying Place is one for which the University does not receive any government funding. As such, students enrolled in these places are required to contribute the full cost of their course.
Fees for international students apply to persons living in Australia with Temporary Resident status (provided that there is no limitation on study) and persons living abroad who are not Australian citizens and do not have Permanent Resident status in Australia.
Equivalent Full-Time Student Load (EFTSL)
EFTSL is the standard annual full time load. Eight credit points is the standard full-time-load for one year of study.
* The 'indicative annual course fee' cited has been provided as a guide only. It has been calculated on the basis of a typical enrolment of a student undertaking the course in 2014, and reflects the cost involved in undertaking a full-time quota of units within the specified discipline.
The actual fees charged by Deakin University will depend upon the discipline from which each individual unit is chosen, and may vary from the indicative course fee cited, particularly if units are chosen from a number of disciplines. The cost of each unit offered in 2014 can be viewed from the Unit Search.
Please note that the fees per unit/credit point may increase annually due to rises in the cost of course delivery and service.
Deakin assumes no responsibility for persons relying on 'indicative annual course fees' to calculate the total future cost of their course.
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.
