Body:

The Construction Industry is one of the fastest growing sectors of the Ghanaian economy. This is not by accident, but due to the fact that Ghana is a developing country and has a fast-growing human population. Ghana has a reasonable supply of craftsmen with traditional knowledge, skills and experience in building construction processes. Similarly, there is a considerable amount of quality middle level and top management construction personnel playing vital roles in the construction industry, albeit below the market demand. The number of professionals within the supervisory level of the industry is dwindling, due to the lack of a progression path for graduates from a purely technological background, causing most of them to divert into the construction management fields.

Ghana, as a developing country, needs expansion and efficiency in the building construction industry in order to achieve its developmental objectives. The growth or improvement cannot be limited to the application of traditional practices in the industry, because a rapid change in the global technological phenomenon has caught up with all industries and nations.

 

Aim and Objectives

The aim of the Master of Technology programme in Construction Technology is to develop highly skilled manpower with requisite knowledge, skills and technology appreciation, to function effectively and efficiently in providing the vital link in the chain of operation in the building construction industry.

 

Objectives

 The objectives of the programme are to:

  1. Equip students with theoretical, practical and conceptual skills needed to undertake professional tasks in the construction industry.
  2. Train students to acquire critical and analytical skills needed to perform professional tasks in the construction industry. 
  3. Develop capacities of students to conduct research in new developmental trends in the construction industry.
  4. Equip students with entrepreneurial skills needed to propel them into business, especially the construction industry. 
  5. Train students to acquire and develop transferable hands-on skills demanded by employers
  6. Equip students with the knowledge in professional ethics in the construction industry and the implications of noncompliance.   
  7. To train students using modern facilities, thus ensuring practical experience regarding construction site management. 

 

Study Outcomes

At the end of the programme, students should be able to:

  1. Perform professional tasks such as auditing construction designs, plan and supervise construction projects.
  2. Critically analyse problems in the construction projects delivery value chain and provide scientific solutions to address them.
  3. Perform the functions of a site manager/ engineer in the delivery of projects using project site management tools and techniques that are commonly used in the industry.
  4. Conduct problem-solving research to address challenges in the industry and also discover innovative materials to improve the sector.
  5. Create businesses and apply modern management principles to create employment opportunities for the unemployed.
  6. Train artisans with skills such as setting out, sustainable technologies adoption and materials selection, construction products development etc. 
  7. Uphold the highest ethical standards in the performance of their duties.
