Unitec’s construction management courses give you the skills and knowledge to plan and run building projects. You’ll learn how to put together a building programme, schedule activities on a construction site, and coordinate the supply of materials and machinery. It’s great preparation for a career as a site manager, construction manager or project manager.
Study construction management and you’ll also learn best practice for the industry. You’ll find out why quality management systems are important and become familiar with resource planning. Our programmes reflect current trends and legislation, which will give you the knowledge you need once you’re out in the workplace.
And if you’re already working in the industry, we can develop your skills in team leadership and complex problem solving.
