Join a unique qualification
Join the Master of Construction (Building Technology) - the only postgraduate building technology qualification in New Zealand.
Learn how to make more efficient energy use of facilities and how to create a healthy facility with the only building technology qualification in New Zealand.
During the Massey University’s Master of Construction (Buildng Technology) you will learn how to design and manage healthy and energy efficient homes and workplaces, from principles to applications.
The Master of Contruction has a focus on energy management and healthy buildings and is the only university course that looks at indoor air quality, healthy building and energy issues.
You will learn from senior faculty members and industry experts. Our staff have extensive experience and are working at the global forefront of research into healthy buildings. It is an opportunity for you to learn the latest developments in this area and take this learning back into your organisation and career.
As well as specific learning around facilities management, you will gain skills in front-end general project management issues such as development, finance, planning and scheduling, contract and stakeholder management. This is supplemented by elective modules from other construction-related endorsements or schools according to your professional specialisation.
Our lecturers come from a range of relevant sectors such as architectural technology, environmental engineering, construction, engineering, and IT. International participants feature strongly on all intakes. This wide mix of expertise allows for you to have meaningful exchange and interaction at this postgraduate level. Staff are very active in research on healthy buildings allowing students to be at the cutting edge of this fast growing area.
The curriculum is flexible to meet your unique study preferences and for your convenience. A full-time option is offered over one year, while the part-time option allows you to work while you study via block study mode, coupled with an interactive virtual learning environment. All courses are delivered in block study mode with Contact Workshops on the Auckland campus.
The built environment affects, and is affected by many external influences. During this programme, you will gain a global perspective of the social, political and ethical influences on building and construction and learn how to overlay these in your decision-making process.
Your learning takes place in an environment of diversity, integrity and transparency. The environment replicates, and reflects the standards of the construction management profession itself.
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.
Postgraduate study is hard work but hugely rewarding and empowering. The workload replicates the high-pressure environment of senior workplace roles.
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.
