Besides, Construction Management Division provides 6 post graduate courses within the body of M.Sc. Programme in Civil Engineering (English). Furthermore, the opportunity to participate in the research projects new technologies and approaches are developed is provided for the students. In this context, the students will be able to develop their knowledge about construction engineering and management.


Graduates of civil engineering plan and manage construction operations with the construction management education provided by the department. During this process, they successfully carry out projects in terms of mobilization, schedule planning, equipment selection, human resources management, procurement process and health and safety applications. In addition, graduates control and develop plans and specifications in terms of feasibility, safety and productivity. Also, graduates have ability in making budget estimation, preparing bidding documents, using Building Information Modelling systems in order to design 3D models, managing subcontractors and collaborating with clients in order to ensure that the project meets the specified requirements.
