The aim of the course is to develop and empower emerging leaders as agents of change to transform the construction industry.

The course is a two-year part-time degree targeted at those who have several years’ professional experience and have already attained a leadership role or have been identified as potential leaders in their organisations. The course will enhance students' technical knowledge and managerial skills with the expectation that they will return to their respective companies trained as agents of change ready to redefine the way in which the infrastructure of society is created. The part-time format of the course permits students to continue with their professional careers while studying.
