Deepen your expertise in a chosen area within the field of construction management through independent, sustained and academically-supervised research.
The Master of Construction Management (Research) gives you the opportunity to conduct research in the construction management and building disciplines. You'll write a thesis explaining the research carried out in your field of study.
To qualify for a Master by Research, students must demonstrate an advanced and integrated understanding of a complex body of knowledge in one or more discipline areas by generating a substantial contribution to knowledge through the use of appropriate research principles and methods. This is in the form of a thesis of up to 50,000 words in length. Although the focus of the degree is on research, students are also required to complete a minimum of one unit of coursework.
When applying, contact the School of Architecture and Built Environment for guidance on developing research proposals.
Applicants must have demonstrated evidence of a high standard of research ability. This is normally an Honours year to H2B (60%+) standard, or a coursework master degree with a substantial thesis. However, other evidence of research ability may be considered and could include a thesis as part of an international undergraduate degree; relevant refereed publications; research awards; or research experience.
