The objective of this subject is to give a broad-based introduction to the construction industry and to emphasise the technical and managerial skills needed by engineering professionals working in this area. Much of the value and strength of the subject relates to the development of an understanding that a leadership role in engineering construction projects requires a holistic approach that blends technical skill, logical reasoning, judgement and managing activities and people.
