Why Project Management in the Built Environment?

To address the urgent challenges of the climate crisis and the rapidly changing architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry, we need you – tomorrow’s project management professional with expertise specific to the built environment. This graduate program offers students the opportunity to explore the principles necessary to deliver innovative and sustainable buildings and prepare for careers in AEC project management.

Gain expertise in managing and delivering projects at any stage of the building lifecycle: planning, design, construction, operations and end-of-life. Learn how your projects can leverage emerging technologies to improve energy efficiency and the occupant experience while reducing carbon emissions.

The interdisciplinary graduate program of project management in the built environment offers a master of applied science (MASc) degree or a master of project management (MPM) degree.

Which Degree is Right for You?

The MASc is best for students who want to focus on an in-depth study of a particular aspect of project management, whether theoretical or applied, which culminates in a traditional masters-level research thesis. MASc students do five courses in their first year and then focus on research, working closely with a faculty supervisor to complete their thesis. The MASc is a two-year, full-time program.

The MPM is best for students who are experienced practitioners seeking to upgrade their skills or for those who prefer coursework over research. MPM students take either ten courses or take eight courses and complete a major research project. The full-time program is designed to be completed in 12 months, but MPM students can take the program part-time over a period of two to five years.
