Placements

Surveying project:

Our surveyors look at financing a project, procuring construction work, financial management and the entire construction process. We want our students to have 'real world' experiences while studying at LSBU, of field work is a major component. We create these situations by inviting guest speaks in to give up-to-date lectures, having great industry links and taking our students into situations where they would like to work. Most of our surveying and construction courses give our students the opportunity to carry out a construction project. Their work will take into account current construction technologies, energy efficiency solutions and environmental and sustainability issues. The project is very detailed and is carried out across site visits, analysing on-going construction projects and an appraisal of eco-technologies. These factors can be influenced by a construction's location so our field trips can take our students both overseas to expanding countries like Dubai or round the corner to building developments happening on our own campus.

Market report and case study analysis:

Students on our MSc Surveying courses can choose to study International Real Estate & Construction as an optional. For this complex module students need to go on a study visit to an international city which has an emerging real estate and construction market.

Past students have gone abroad to take in either Dubai in the United Arab Emirates or Shanghai in the People's Republic of China. The field trip includes visits to real estate companies and construction firms, site visits and meetings with various professionals. From these briefings, students need to produce a country report that includes a detailed strategy including how they could break through in the real estate or construction market in these overseas destinations.

Accreditation

The MSc/PgDip is fully accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors; this will allow entry to Quantity Surveying and Construction Faculty through APC.

Study the Master of Construction (Quantity Surveying) and fast track your career.

Find out more about the Master of Construction parent structure.

The Master of Construction (Quantity Surveying) is one of the first construction-focused management programmes in New Zealand. It will provide you with the advanced skills and knowledge required of senior quantity surveyors and commercial managers.

Unique focus on construction

Massey’s Master of Construction is the only postgraduate qualification in New Zealand whose courses are specifically developed for construction. You will still gain from Massey’s expertise in related areas such as engineering and business, but always with a construction view.

Become an expert in managing construction finances

The quantity surveyor is the financial expert of a construction project - preparing the feasibility studies, quantifying and measuring what is to be built, cost estimation and budgets, preparing the tender documents, advising on legal aspects, valuing the work, advising the client on payments and finalising the final accounts.

Gain the skills you need

During the Master of Construction (Quantity Surveying) you will develop these advanced proficiencies and more. You will gain advanced knowledge in quantity surveying and commercial and contractual management of construction projects, construction law, and research. Theoretical principles and methodologies are interlaced with hands-on practice. You will be able to apply your knowledge to the contractual and financial management of large-scale and complex building and construction projects.

This will enable you to contribute to the provision of early cost advice, contract documentation and tendering, budgeting and contractual and financial management of all phases of the building and infrastructure development life cycle, from design through to construction and subsequent management, maintenance and remodelling of the asset.

Research-led learning from industry experts

You will learn from highly-acclaimed academics and experienced industry professionals who are experts in the field. Your lecturers and supervisors come from a range of relevant sectors such as construction, engineering, petroleum and IT. As active professionals, they have built extensive industry networks and are able to research and apply the latest thinking in the subject area to ensure the knowledge you receive is current and industry-relevant, and that you are well-prepared for the workplace of tomorrow.

International participants feature strongly on all intakes, and the wide mix of expertise allows for you to have meaningful exchange and interaction at the postgraduate level.

What will you learn?

As well as specific skills necessary for a career in construction, Massey University’s Master of Construction (Quantity Surveying) will help you gain skills for broader employability and usefulness across many careers.

Think differently

Develop your capacity to think critically, logically and strategically to make informed and better decisions and solve problems more effectively and ethically. You will learn how to apply problem-solving and analytical thinking skills to the analyses of and solutions to construction and building industry problems.

Critical analysis

Plan and carry out research that demonstrates an advanced level of skill in critical analysis, synthesis and scholarship, to an international standard.

Planning

Learn in-depth skills in conducting cost planning, design cost management and preparing budgets. Participate and collaborate as valued peers with colleagues in the wider domains of construction and infrastructure management education, design, planning, construction and maintenance.

Project management and advice

You will learn how to provide cost advice and procurement and project management services including managing and optimising project and resources to achieve cost, time and quality targets. You will also gain the knowledge to act as an advisor on dispute resolution, including arbitration, adjudication, mediation and negotiation or an expert witness in construction disputes.

Multimedia environment

Massey University offers a supportive virtual online learning community called ‘Stream’. Even if you are studying at a distance, your learning experience will be enriched by this multimedia environment that supports interactivity and knowledge sharing. It allows you to share and exchange ideas with fellow students and the course coordinator.

A masters in a year

This degree is 120 credits, meaning you can complete in only one year full time. You can enter this programme if you have an approved four year degree, a three year degree and a postgraduate diploma, or a three year degree and two years relevant work experience.

Why postgraduate study?

Postgraduate study is hard work but hugely rewarding and empowering. The workload replicates the high-pressure environment of senior workplace roles.

Not just more of the same

Postgraduate study is not just ‘more of the same’ undergraduate study. Our experts are there to guide but if you have come from undergraduate study, you will find that postgraduate study demands more in-depth and independent study. It takes you to a new level in knowledge and expertise especially in planning and undertaking research.

In today's ever-changing market, construction professionals need the knowledge and skills available through postgraduate study more than ever. Read more
In today's ever-changing market, construction professionals need the knowledge and skills available through postgraduate study more than ever. Successful project managers need to be able to think, lead and act in an uncertain and dynamic business environment, have access to the latest information, understand the appropriate techniques and systems, and have the expertise to apply these to market needs and business opportunities.

The MSc Construction Project Management is designed specifically to enhance your understanding of managing projects, and to support construction professionals in practice and client organisations. It is aimed at architects, surveyors, services engineers, civil engineers, construction managers, and existing project managers who wish to formalise their training on the client and supply side.

Key benefits

The course is accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and by the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB).

Course detail

The course's strengths lie in teaching and learning that meets the practising professional's needs, and with such a diverse range of applicants, it is ideal for peer learning. Module content reflects the current diversity and ongoing change in the construction industry in particular, building information modelling (BIM) as well as sustainability and health and safety. To help you gain the most benefit from the course, we also offer advanced study skills.

You'll also enjoy plenty of opportunities to network with people working at the leading edge of research and practice whose insights feed directly into the course modules and help us shape research opportunities for your dissertation. Our staff include active researchers and consultants, through the Department's Construction and Property Research Centre (CPRC).

Structure

The full Master's course comprises 180 credits divided into three 60 credits stages: Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma, and Master's. Students work incrementally through the three stages and must pass all modules at each stage in order to progress to the next.

Modules

• Project Management Principles (15 credits)
• BIM in Design Co-ordination (15 credits)
• BIM in Construction Operation (15 credits)
• Sustainability in the Built Environment (15 credits)
• Managerial Finance for the Built Environment (15 credits)
• Construction Procurement (15 credits)
• Construction Project Management Practice (15 credits)
• Construction Contract Law (15 credits)
• Dissertation (60 credits)

Format

Teaching usually takes place on two whole days a week, with lectures, seminars and other supporting activities. Each module (excluding the dissertation) has a full day of contact, with morning and afternoon sessions, and five teaching days so you engage with each module usually once a fortnight. This allows you to prepare for each module and apply yourself to the activities to consolidate your learning.

Some of your learning will be through using BIM software in computer labs, applying it to real-world scenarios and briefs.

Assessment

Assessment mainly avoids major exams, and many modules have mini projects that require applied research relevant to the syllabus but applied to construction project management in practice.

Careers / Further study

Clients, consultants and contractors value project managers' role highly when it comes to optimising projects' budgets, timescales and quality. Project management roles vary, depending on the nature of the project and working environment, but it is a generic function that many organisations' clients will specify.
