Specialise in Construction Management for your Bachelor of Construction at Massey

The Bachelor of Construction (Construction Management) will help you make an impact in the building industry, from design to project completion.

Skills employers seek

You’ll learn how to contribute to client needs assessment and how to offer advice on resolving buildability issues at the design stage. You’ll plan, schedule, and organise for implementation of new builds, refurbishments and conversions. You’ll learn how to make sure that things stay on track – financially, quality and time-wise and that you are meeting legal requirements.

You can follow your passion and create your own niche. For instance, you may be interested in sustainable construction, or you could be an advocate for obligations for social and environmental friendliness in buildings.

Digital technology is integral to your learning

Extensive use is made of digital technology during your study as it is embedded across most of your courses. All courses have an online teaching component and you can use your tablet or smartphone to ask or answer questions during lectures. Some assignments will require you to prepare a video of your work.
