Why Study?

Construction Management is a very rewarding career with lots of action and the satisfaction of seeing real results from your work.

A construction manager transforms the ideas shown on design drawings into real buildings, roads or bridges and organises the people, materials and equipment needed to get the job done on time, within budget, to the right quality and with a high standard of safety.

Construction managers are well organised professionals with good communication and people skills to direct and motivate the range of people and organisations involved in construction projects
