Description

The Master’s programme in Management in the Building Industry gives you insight into all phases of modern construction; from ideas about shape and use to project design, construction, management, operation, and maintenance. Besides the technical aspects, the programme covers fields such as organisation, economics, project management, working environment, logistics, and information technology. 

An important element in the Master’s programme in Management in the Building Industry is cooperation with the industry. Projects are carried out in cooperation with companies and knowledge organisations within the construction industry. Experience shows that problem-based project work in cooperation with companies is fruitful for both parts; as a student you learn how to combine theory and practice, and the company gets valuable new input on both existing and future challenges.

Consequently the programme in Management in the Building Industry gives you an academic understanding of the phases of construction 
focusing on the whole – the construction project and the construction company.
