The Master of Engineering (Civil) / Master of Construction Management will provide graduates with an opportunity to gain advanced theoretical and practical knowledge of civil engineering design, together with construction and infrastructure management principles, procurement and cost analysis.
The program will assist in up-skilling local and international graduates in the state of the art Australian professional engineering. It is designed to assist graduates seeking employment in a range of industries including consulting engineering, construction, local government and public and private infrastructure owners.
Upon completion of Master of Engineering (Civil) / Master of Construction Management, students should be able to:
1. demonstrate high-level advanced knowledge and skills in civil engineering and construction management practice related to design, construction, operation and maintenance of buildings and civil infrastructure
2. plan and execute independent research projects by applying appropriate research principles, sound methods and technical research skills
3. reflect in managing practical issues/complex problems and describing/developing contemporary and sustainable civil engineering and construction management trends and best practices related to design, construction, operation and maintenance of buildings and civil infrastructure
4. investigate, analyse and synthesise complex information, perceptions, problems, concepts and theories of civil engineering practice to provide rational solutions to composite problems using critical thinking and team-based/independent judgement in the project-based construction industry
5. demonstrate clear and coherent communication skills to articulate complex knowledge and justify propositions and professional decisions to specialist and non-specialist audiences; including clients, customers, multi-disciplinary/multi-cultural project teams and stakeholders
6. demonstrate a high level of autonomy, accountability, credibility, ethics, and responsibility for all personal work outputs.
The Master of Engineering (Civil) / Master of Construction Management is designed to provide the following generic attributes:
- Providing career-orientated education
- Developing links with industry and knowledge transfer
- Undertaking research which is applied and relevant to the needs of industry
- Developing lifelong learning skills
- Establishing international links including opportunities for collaboration with Swinburne’s other campuses
