Program description

Join a unique qualification

Join the Master of Construction (Facilities Management) - the only facilities management qualification in New Zealand (and one of few in the world).

WHAT IS IT LIKE?

Learn how to make more efficient energy use of facilities and how to create a healthy facility with the only facilities management qualification in New Zealand.

Massey University’s Master of Construction (Facilities Management) has a focus on energy management and healthy buildings. You will learn how to manage your organisation’s facilities to create an environment that enhances workplace productivity.

Key project management skills

As well as specific learning around facilities management, you will gain skills in front-end general project management issues such as development, finance, planning and scheduling, contract and stakeholder management. This is supplemented by elective modules from other construction-related endorsements or schools according to your professional specialisation.

Research-led learning from industry experts

You will learn from senior faculty members and industry experts. Our lecturers come from a range of relevant sectors such as architectural technology, environmental engineering, construction, engineering, and IT. International participants feature strongly on all intakes, and the wide mix of expertise allows for you to have meaningful exchange and interaction at the postgraduate level. Staff are very active in research on healthy buildings, allowing students to be at the cutting edge of this fast growing area.

Careers

Past and current students are working as facilities managers, managing sustainable retrofits of housing, researching healthy homes, and conducting indoor environmental investigations. They are involved with energy efficient retrofits and enhancing the productivity of existing facilities.

You will be in demand

Careers you may progress to after completing this qualification include:

  • Advanced building design
  • Building investigations and energy audits
  • Facilities management
  • Building management

There is a shortage of enough qualified graduates with skills in this area - there is over $100 billion construction work (covering both building and infrastructure work) to be done in New Zealand alone over the next 30 years in addition to the management of the existing building stock. Demand in many countries beyond New Zealand is even bigger.

Master of Construction (Facilities Management) structure

You will follow a flexible course of study, which shall consist of courses totalling at least 120 credits, comprising any compulsory courses from the Schedule and at least 45 credits of research.
