Construction Management

In complex construction industry, any inaccurate step can be crucial on the path to the project implementation. The experts of construction management play a key role in the implementation of quality processes from the beginning to the end of the project. They are the coordinators ensuring smooth operation of related organisations and meeting the customer’s expectations, applying the knowledge of building information modelling (BIM) and geo-information systems (GIS).

Values

Advancing knowledge

During the studies, you can choose the alternative modules and apply the acquired knowledge in the areas of construction projects, processes or real estate management.

Traditional technologies? Certainly not.

The graduates of this study programme will be ready to plan, organise and manage various construction processes and independently solve non-standard engineering tasks, applying the latest BIM and GIS technologies.

You will become professionally creative

The solutions of construction management require a broad approach and ability to think about the essence. You will be ready to apply research in a practical environment and creatively interpret its data, assess the aspects and generate new solutions and ideas. Perfectly adaptable – the kind of specialists that are particularly valued in the contemporary labour market.

You will study with your business partners

During the studies, you will develop close relationships that can open the door to wide markets. The students of this study programme are advanced and demonstrate high academic achievements.  Due to the relatively small local market, the relationships developed here quite often provide wide possibilities of cooperation.

 

Career

 

 

Your knowledge will enable you to do the following:

 

  • Creatively apply the latest knowledge of civil engineering for the solution of non-standard problems;
  • Prepare the project solutions for buildings and engineering structures;
  • Have knowledge of multi-dimensional economic, social, environmental and business aspects;
  • Model the complex construction processes when information is inaccurate or uncertain;
  • Assure the quality management in standard and non-standard construction processes during the project implementation.

A person, when studying, not only learns some “craft”, but also fosters communication skills, which is very useful in a professional activity. Science gives foundations and the rest is up to personal qualities: diligence, persistence, will to seek knowledge, move forward and, undoubtedly, a bit of luck.
