Construction Yearbook 2014


Construction at Massey University is going from strength to strength. Graduates and final year students are finding work in all corners of the world. They are assisting with the Christchurch rebuild, helping construct major infrastructure projects in Europe and meeting the housing needs in Auckland. Today, Massey University offers a wide range of Construction courses at both undergraduate (B.Construction), and postgraduate (Diploma, Masters and PhD) level.

In 2014 we gained Accreditation from the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) to add to our existing professional Accreditations and this will enable B Construction graduates to work in even more countries around the world. The numbers of students being attracted to this program is growing year on year. We are also launching a new taught Master of Construction, that can be studied either part or full time, which will provide advanced learning for construction professionals.

While providing a strong grounding in the principles of business and technology we have recognized the need for graduates who are well rounded in their problem solving skills, communication, ability to work in teams and appreciation of the wider commercial, economic and social environment. Our courses are designed to develop these skills with a strong emphasis on activity-based learning.

Right from day one students are immersed in projects that challenge their problem solving ability in a range of different contexts - from learning about sustainable buildings, to developing computer analytical skills, to improving the living conditions for the people who need affordable housing.

The culmination of the undergraduate degree program is the final year project where the students apply their knowledge to the solution of real life commercial problems. This booklet presents summaries of the Construction 3rd year projects from 2014.

A Massey University construction degree provides you with the high level of technical knowledge AND the professional skills to truly make a difference - today and into the future.
