Study Options
Students who successfully complete the required postgraduate courses at GISM can then enrol directly into the Massey University Master of Construction majoring in Construction Project Management or Quantity Surveying, and graduate after one year of successful full-time study with Massey University (1 year + 1 year).

New Zealand Qualification
Become a world-leading construction specialist, with Massey University’s Master of Construction. It is the only degree in New Zealand focused on construction.

The Master of Construction at Massey University is a unique degree. It focuses on building in-depth knowledge of specific aspects of construction. It is the only qualification in New Zealand that has specifically developed postgraduate construction courses. This master’s qualification builds on Massey’s bachelor's degree in construction – the only one offered in New Zealand.

You may be working in the construction industry and want to know more about specific aspects. Or, you may work in another area (like law) and wish to learn more about related construction specialties (construction law). This degree will give you specific, tailored, focused learning to help you gain in-depth knowledge of these areas.

When you study towards Massey’s Master of Construction you will become a construction professional with expertise in:
• construction technology
• cost and financial aspects of construction
• legal aspects of construction projects
• management of construction projects.
• World-leading and industry-relevant

Massey University construction staff have a wide range of industry and research experience. We have extensive contacts, know how the industry works and what potential employers are looking for. This all contributes to ensuring that our programme is kept up to date and relevant.

We encourage you to focus on a research project in an industry relevant to your own career. Or you can use our industry relationships to develop a project relevant to your career ambitions.

The themes of sustainability and productivity run through all our construction courses. We have sustainability specialists who ensure that these increasingly important views of construction are always considered.

There is a great deal of work to be done and there is high demand for graduates with your skills at all levels of the construction industry.

Entry criteria

Successful completion of the GISM programme with a B grade average or better and IELTS 6.5 (no band less than 6.0).
