Thus, the programme in Management in the Building Industry focuses on the whole – in both the construction project and in the construction company.
MASTER OF SCIENCE IN TECHNOLOGY
(DANISH TITLE: CAND.TECH.) (STARTING IN FEBRUARY)
If you hold another qualifiying education than a BSc in Engineering, for instance a Bachelor of Architechtural Technology and Construction Management or a Bachelor of Technology Management and Marine Engineering, you can enroll in the Master of Science in Technology programme in Management in the Building Industry.
The programme can also be studied as a Master of Science in Engineering. Applicants who hold a BSc in Engineering can apply for this programme.
COOPERATION WITH THE INDUSTRY
An important element in the Master’s programme in Management in the Building Industry is cooperation with the industry. Almost all projects are carried out in cooperation with companies and knowledge organisations within the construction industry. Also, the programme has a close connection to the development initiatives within the building sector. Experience shows that problem based project work in cooperation with companies is fruitful for both parties; as a student you learn how to combine theory and practice, and the company gets valuable new input on both existing and future challenges. Thus, the programme gives you an academic understanding of the phases of construction. As a graduate from Management in the Building Industry, you are therefore well equipped to meet the demands of modern construction.
