Construction Management

Construction management engineers play a critical role in all significant infrastructure projects, overseeing the full range of tasks involved—from labour and plant, to site management, procurement, and cost and quality control. They are involved in both the construction of buildings, roads, bridges and tunnels, as well as the ongoing maintenance and refurbishment of built infrastructure.

Our Construction Management major will provide you with advanced knowledge and understanding of all modern and sustainable construction processes and practices, including how to optimise labour and plant scheduling.

As a construction or project manager, you’ll ensure major construction projects are delivered on time, within budget, and at a high level of quality, to satisfy stakeholders. You can work outdoors on-site, in an office, or a combination of the two. And you could find opportunities with a wide range of companies, consultancies and organisations, including in: civil engineering, utilities, transportation, environmental services, property development and infrastructure.
