Description

In this degree program, students are trained for many different tasks related to construction and a sustainable development of the community's built environment as construction supervisors. This means building new and renovating existing buildings.

The construction supervisor's work is technology-focused but also very human-oriented. Construction supervisors often work with different project and supervisor tasks, at the same time with many people in different roles. Some construction supervisors also work in various sales tasks within construction, so human contacts are important in the construction supervisor's profession.

In addition to building technology and materials, the studies include: economics, environmental aspects, leadership, project work and individual work as well as sustainability in construction and social development. In this degree program, students deepen themselves in project and work management, ie learning to lead construction that results in well-built sustainable houses and buildings, buildings to be proud of the rest of their lives.

The studies in the program are realized through lectures and exercises, both in groups and independently. It also includes excursions and compulsory internships, and individual company-based studies in management for all students. Partly included are virtual studies. The company-placed studies in work management are generally placed in medium-sized or large construction companies.

The central part of the studies is that they prepare you to have a central role in the construction industry in creating a sustainable and climate-smart society. Characteristic of the construction supervisor's profession is that you have to work with many people and in the long term with issues of crucial importance for sustainable development. The result of the work is lasting for many decades.
