Programme Brief

One of the issues that exist within the local construction industry is that while there might be the technical know-how in the area of construction practice, many times there is a lack of understanding in project management practices or theories. This tends to have a negative impact on the successful implementation of local construction projects. This course attempts to fill the knowledge gap that exists within various facets of the local construction industry.
