Welcome to Construction Studies

 Construction studies at UKZN

Vision: To be an innovative transdisciplinary construction education programme that forms 21st century professionals and engages in community based research providing sustainable solutions

Aspire to be the premier internationally recognised South African construction education programme that adopts innovative approaches to teaching and learning and bridges gaps between various built environment disciplines, and responds to African challenges through collaborative trans disciplinary community based research informed by principles of sustainable development and green building

Our Construction Studies program is designed to prepare graduates for careers in construction or construction-related fields through an immersive, integrative, collaborative and transformational education. Graduates will be able to manage both construction projects and also the business of construction. The curriculum is interdisciplinary and provides a broad knowledge base in business, engineering, and construction sciences.

The program facilitates and encourages student collaboration across other disciplines within the School of Engineering which prepares students for the collaborative nature of the building professions and equips them with the skills for success in construction management and administration and a broad range of construction-related fields. 

Our website has a variety of information about our program and curriculum. It also features student projects and alumni updates. We encourage you to schedule a visit so we can meet with you, discuss our program in more detail, show you our facilities, and introduce you to our students and staff.
