Programme summary

Want to learn how to manage construction projects? Further your knowledge of management structures, and learn to schedule activities and resources on construction projects.

Gain the knowledge and skills to organise and manage activities on a construction site. Construction sites can involve hundreds of workers and millions of dollars of materials, and construction managers are responsible for managing both. The Bachelor of Construction (Construction Management) helps you further your knowledge of management structures, and gain an in-depth understanding of supply chain, people and production management.


  • A good foundation for a career in construction management, providing you with the skills to undertake detailed planning and management of resources applied to construction projects.
  • An overview of all aspects of the construction industry.
  • Explore progressively more complex scenarios and projects, and develop the technical skills to schedule activities and resources on construction projects.
  • A major industry research project where you can apply what you've learnt.
  • Relevant to your future career: Unitec's advisory boards include experts who keep us up-to-date with industry trends and relevant legislation in the construction industry.
  • Lecturers with plenty of experience in the construction industry and guest lecturers who are leaders in their field.

Together with Bachelor of Construction (Construction Economics) and Bachelor of Construction (Property Development) students, you also study topics like advanced construction management, contract law and administration, tendering and design management.
