This subject examines the industrial behaviour of a variety of different types of firms active in the construction market through the experiences and reflections of key industry representatives. This will include examination of features related to the feasibility, design, construct, commissioning and operation phases of a construction project.
Organised as a series of structured discussions within a seminar format, the subject will expose students to a variety of industrial pathways, while positioning challenges and achievements of the sample of firms selected within their historical, economic and technological contexts.
Student's work will be to acquire industry information from class and formal research sources then organise, synthesise and determine possible futures of various sectors of the construction industry. This will assist in the student in formulating how future trends, constraints and opportunities may impact on various career opportunities. The student will write a formal career planning document formatively over the semester to articulate possible pathways for them, which will complement their skills, experiences, personalities and individual talents.
