Remarks

This programme is offered within the Postgraduate Scheme in Construction and Environment.

Aims and Characteristics

Programme Aims

  • To integrate the necessary knowledge in construction management and law for the needs of construction professionals;
  • To cut through disciplinary barriers by integrating the various skills and strengths of the different professions to make a specialised contribution to the construction industry;
  • To apply theory to practice by providing training in the key dispute resolution skills offered by approved trainers; and
  • To attract construction graduates and lawyers who wish to specialise in construction law and alternative dispute resolution.

Characteristics

The philosophy of this programme is to promote better understanding among different areas of professional practice and to explore the theories in the interfaces between law, construction technology and management. Part of the programme is designed in the context of international construction projects to acknowledge the need for knowledge of cross-cultural practice and for knowledge of projects in Hong Kong and the Chinese mainland. The programme is targeted at practising construction professionals; hence, it is designed with flexibility to allow part-time study and to allow students to attend lectures and other in-class activities for discussion and experience sharing. To combine theory and practice, the programme also provides practical training in the main dispute resolution skills, namely arbitration and mediation.
