Programme Structure
Students may pursue their studies either on a full-time or part-time mode. Students enrolling in the full-time mode are recommended to complete 7 subjects and a dissertation. For the part-time mode, the first year emphasizes project management processes and techniques, equipping students with contemporary and in-depth knowledge of project management. This is supplemented by insights into the major factors that influence real estate development. In the second year, elements such as value management, finance and international construction provide specific knowledge of construction project management at the macro level. The critical analysis, evaluation and application of the knowledge that is gained from the programme are integrated with student experience to produce a research-based Dissertation after completing 7 subjects. However, students can complete 3 additional subjects instead of the MSc Dissertation. For the full-time mode, classes may be conducted during weekdays, weekends and in the evenings. For the part-time mode, classes are mostly conducted during weekends. To enhance self-study, study-guides and reading materials for Core Subjects are provided by the Department of Building and Real Estate.
