Rachana Sansad’s Academy of Architecture has the distinction of being one of the first and one of the few, schools in the nation to offer this post graduate degree program. The Construction Management program is designed to align with and grow from our architectural tradition. We want our students to be educated in the elements of the matrix-problem-solving discipline that is architecture, and to apply their knowledge and critical thinking to the process of construction management. Our students will have hands-on experiential education that will prepare them to lead this industry.
The faculty consists of leading professionals from the construction industry. We take pride in being very "student" oriented, therefore our students and faculty are enthusiastic about our program and close personal interaction with our faculty is not only encouraged but expected.
This programme is a response to the growing demand from the construction industry for flexible professionals capable of strategic thinking and a creative response to volatile economic conditions. Planning and controlling the allocation of resources, and the detailed matching of design and production to the needs of the market for built space, are at the core of the construction industry.
Our Construction Management program strives to develop problem solvers who excel not only at managing logistics, but also at overseeing a multidisciplinary working environment. Students are provided a firm understanding of the roles, needs, and challenges of all players on any given construction project. These rich, varied perspectives ultimately translate into greater efficiencies in estimating, scheduling, cost control, and procurement. We see the collaborative goal of integrated project delivery (IPD) as the future of the built environment. IPD is going to redefine the roles of constructors and project managers and will require new relationships and skills that we emphasize in our program. In addition, we focus on all the key aspects of effective leadership.
Our students are taught the verbal and written skills necessary to communicate within and across project teams, supported by quantitative literacy, critical thinking, research skills, and mastery of the latest software and other innovative tools of the trade.
As with all programs at Rachana Sansad, we instill in our students a strong sense of professional ethics and personal responsibility. We prepare them not only to find rewarding careers but also to make their unique, positive marks on the world.
The Masters in Architecture with specialization in Construction Management focuses on the management skills and construction business knowledge required for the continually changing environment of the construction industry while maintaining a balance between your academic studies and your work and family obligations. The structure allows consideration of both the theory and applications of economics, finance and management in the context of construction projects. With courses in Core Management, Project Appraisal, Financial Management, Contract Administration, Construction project Scheduling, this degree provides students with a broad-based knowledge of the construction industry, extensive training in business and management applications, and a solid general education.
It will provide students with a basic understanding of managing a construction project. Students will learn the importance of interacting with the myriad of people they come in contact with on a daily basis, including owners, contractors, sub-contractors, suppliers and employees. Students in this program will become familiar with International & National Safety requirements and training policies as well as construction specific regulatory practices.
