Upon successful completion of an undergraduate program, some scholars elect to participate in a master’s degree program. A Master of Science, or MSc, may be given to students after finishing an intensive series of science-related coursework.

What is an MSc in Building Technology? These programs are often designed to strengthen the skills and expand the knowledge of those with backgrounds in environmental engineering, architecture, building services and other similar fields. Programs are typically designed to combine research and practical application of the tools and techniques related to building technologies. Coursework may cover subjects such as civil engineering, facilities management, landscape architecture, real estate, information technology and economics. Many programs require that students develop a large research project or thesis as their capstone assignment.

Engaging in graduate study can provide both personal and professional enrichment that can go a long way in improving job opportunities and overall quality of life. An MSc program in building technology can develop a student’s critical-thinking and problem-solving capabilities. It may also improve a student’s organization and multitasking skills.

Factors such as university location and program length play a role in determining program cost. Since there is no set cost, students should make contact with institution officials to learn details about expense totals.

Individuals who are awarded an MSc in Building Technology may discover that they have attained skills and knowledge that make them very valuable to potential employers. Graduates may fill positions such as architectural technologist, logistics and distribution manager, sustainability consultant, financial manager, building services engineer and many other positions that require leadership and decision-making skills. Some graduates use these programs and preparation for entrance into doctoral programs.

Making the decision to enter a master’s program can be both exciting and overwhelming. Higher education institutions may have on campus and/or online options.
