Message from the Chairman of the Department

Welcome to the JKUAT Department of Construction Management website. The Department successfully pioneered the degree in Construction Management in Kenya, with the first cohort of students graduating in June 2006. In 2010, we launched a Masters in Construction Project Management program, and in 2011, Bachelors in Quantity Surveying. Further, plans are underway to launch a Bachelors in Real Estate, in September 2015. We also offer doctorate degrees in Construction Management.

Our strong focus on students practical attachment during vacations and our studio based learning has differentiated our programs from other universities. Further, we strongly believe that our qualified and experienced members of staff, who are active in research and consultancy, have significantly enhanced the quality of the education we offer, through imparting practical knowledge to our students. It is no wonder that our graduates have continued to be well received by the market and feedback has been very encouraging. Our well sought after graduates can be found working for contractors, project management firms, banks and mortgage providers, property management firms, property developers, local authorities, and statutory authorities, including the National Construction Authority (NCA). We continue to strive to improve our programs to incorporate current industry practice and advancements, in an effort to meet the needs of the employers. As such, we review each of our programs upon accomplishment of a full cycle. We do this in collaboration with the various stakeholders including industry, regulatory bodies and statutory authorities.

In case of any queries about our programs feel free to contract us on
