RMIT’s flexible study plans allow you to balance your education with other commitments.
Hands-on experience is essential in the construction management field, so this degree is designed to accommodate you working part-time while studying. This encourages you to gain firsthand industry experience and apply the theories you’ll learn during your studies.
The first year will introduce you to the construction and property industries, and set the foundations for your learning for the following three years. Your subjects will cover how buildings and assets are created, so that you can learn to appreciate each different type and how they are acquired. You will also be taught basic construction management skills.
Studying the construction process and its technology in greater detail, you’ll learn how to plan, cost and schedule construction. You will also cover what is required to create sustainable structures. You will be given broader skills in areas such as law, economics and leadership to help you on your way to becoming an industry leader.
Third year subjects explore commercial construction in greater detail. You’ll gain the skills you need to manage complex construction projects. A research methods subject will build the foundation for your research project in fourth year.
Your final year prepares you to move into industry. All your learnings will come together in a capstone project where you’ll have the opportunity to apply your skills and knowledge to a realistic construction simulation. You will also complete a research project, including writing a thesis and producing poster presentations.
