    About Construction Management

    Construction managers need not only an in-depth knowledge of construction but also advanced expertise in planning and communication, good financial sense, and a solid ethical framework. Our Bachelor of Construction Management will help you develop these qualities as you study all aspects of building and construction management, including their legal and economic dimensions.

    Studies cover courses associated with construction management, construction planning, building maintenance, building materials, services, structures and documented work experience along with professional practice and communication. Principles of sustainability are integrated throughout the program.

    CQUniversity's built environment field of study is designed with students' needs in mind. Offered exclusively by distance education mode, the program is completed part-time while you are working or seeking employment in the industry.


    Career Opportunities

    Construction managers plan, organise and control activities associated with the construction process of building projects and usually work in government departments, construction, building and sub-contracting companies, and corporations with a large building portfolio.
