What will I learn?

The Bachelor of Construction Project Management delivers the management, technology and process skills required to work in a variety of roles across the full spectrum of construction projects. Students are taught a wide range of project management methodologies with a strong focus on applying these to real-world projects.

The combined course aims to provide graduates with the skills necessary for the management of all aspects of the construction process, as well as develop students' perspectives and understandings to enable them to meet the demands of an internationalised professional environment.

The emphasis on the utilisation of digital technologies, such as building information modelling, ensures that students understand the leading-edge advances being implemented in the industry. This knowledge can be applied in other industry sectors, providing even further employment opportunities.

All students are required to complete a minimum of 200 days industry experience during the course, providing essential professional exposure. For the vast majority of students this entails paid employment in the industry with contractors and consultants (typically called cadetships). To broaden their personal and professional outlook, students can also choose electives, or a sub-major in a range of disciplines, outside construction project management, including business accounting, environmental studies and Aboriginal studies.

Course aims

This course is concerned with management of all aspects of the construction process, including business management, construction management, design management, quantity surveying, contract management and property development. It delivers all the recognised competencies for construction project management professionals while introducing the prospect of diversifying into project management.

Course structure

Students must complete 288 credit points, comprising 192 credit points in construction project management and 96 credit points in international studies. The construction project management component comprises 286-credit-point core subjects and four 6-credit-point electives. Electives can be chosen either from within UTS: Design, Architecture and Building or from the many electives offered by course areas throughout the university. Students undertaking four elective subjects (24 credit points) within a common area are eligible for a sub-major. Sub-majors are offered in three areas, depending on demand. Work experience comprises an important component of the course. The Bachelor of Arts in International Studies requires undergraduates to study a region or country major over a minimum of three years. The Bachelor of Arts in International Studies is not offered as a separate degree, but is completed only in combination with the professional degree program.

Careers

Career opportunities include project manager, construction manager, construction economist, quantity surveyor, design manager, environmental manager, contract manager, site manager, construction programmer, cost engineer, estimator, facility manager and property developer.

Graduates have a wide range of employment opportunities and can work in both the private and public sectors for employers such as building proprietors, contractors, developers, government bodies and consultancy practices or be self-employed entrepreneurs. As key professionals in the construction industry, graduates work closely with other professional disciplines, industry groups and development authorities.
