Construction Management is one of the many areas in civil engineering.

Construction management focuses on the business aspects of construction while civil engineering focuses on structural design and building technologies. Both majors will however give you equal opportunity to enter the construction business.

With the rapid development in Malaysia, managing a construction project can be quite challenging and the need for construction management professionals has been on the rise.

Who should take this programme?

If the idea of planning and implementing a complete construction project appeals to you, then a career in construction management is definitely an option that you should consider. You will be involved throughout the whole development process. You will be overseeing all phases of transforming nothing to something.

Construction is not only limited to buildings but also infrastructure such as roads, bridges, airport and so on.

What will I learn?

This programme covers the art of procuring and directing human and physical resources for the successful realization of a construction project, ensuring that the enterprise meets the desires of the client, the requirements of the budget, and the quality of the specification. From building the tallest building or just re-modeling a room in a house, all construction projects need leadership and management expertise.

Construction management is a blend between technology and management. Students will be exposed to the hard skills and soft skills. Site visits are an important part of the programme so that students get a clear picture of what they learn in class.

What should I expect?

This three-year programme covers both office and field work in order to master the many facets and understand the complexities of the various stages in construction projects. In addition to that, the operation must be profitable. IUKL’s close links with the construction industry ensure that what you learn is relevant to your future career.

The syllabus includes a three month internship for our students to gain their hands-on experience. This is deemed important as construction management is an industry that requires practical skills and knowledge. You need to truly apply what you have learned in the classroom to your job.

What will I do?

The profession of construction management includes the leadership to provide a quality project on schedule and on budget; the planning activities which include support towards value engineering, constructability and commissioning; and construction phase activities that include the management of project scope, schedule, budget, risk, quality, safety, staffing procurement and communication.

Overall, construction managers have to plan, coordinate, budget and supervise construction projects from early development to completion.
