The Master of Construction and Infrastructure Management aims to prepare graduates for future roles in managing people, equipment, materials, technological processes and funds in the construction, management and maintenance of buildings and assets in the civil infrastructure. This aim is facilitated by the study of advanced management and engineering techniques in the fields of construction, building and maintenance.
Students gain significant knowledge and skills in procurement and project delivery, resource planning and management, project costing, health and safety, and risk management. They also learn about the environmental, financial, legal and contractual considerations associated with project-based industries.
The Master of Construction and Infrastructure Management forms the final stage in a four-stage nested suite of programs consisting of:
Graduate Certificate in Construction Management (GC-CMGT)
Graduate Diploma of Construction Management (GD-CMGT)
Master of Construction Management (MA-CMGT)
Master of Construction and Infrastructure Management (MA-CIMGT)
To qualify for the Master of Construction and Infrastructure Management, students must complete a total of 15 units (200 credit points) as follows:
3 Foundation units (37.5 credit points)
5 Technical units (62.5 credit points)
4 Elective units (50 credit points), selected from Elective, Technical or Foundation unit lists
1 Research Methods and Principles unit (12.5 credit points)
1 Research Paper (12.5 credit points)
1 Research Project (25 credit points)
These programs will provide graduates with an opportunity to gain advanced theoretical and practical knowledge of construction and infrastructure management principles, procurement and cost analysis. Graduates can pursue careers as construction managers, project engineers/managers, civil engineers and asset management engineers in a range of industries including consulting engineering, construction, research organisations, private sector, local and other government authorities.
Aims and objectives
At the completion of the Master of Construction and Infrastructure Management course, graduates will be able to:
1. demonstrate high-level advanced knowledge and skills in construction and infrastructure management practice related to design, construction, operation and maintenance of buildings and civil infrastructure
2. plan and execute an independent research project in a relevant construction and infrastructure management topic by applying appropriate research principles, sound methods and research skills
3. reflect in managing practical issues/complex problems and describing/developing contemporary and sustainable construction and infrastructure management trends and best practices related to design, construction, operation and maintenance of buildings and civil infrastructure
