The increasing complexity of construction projects requires the continuous further training of those involved in construction. With the part-time, interdisciplinary Master's programme “Construction Law and Construction Industry”, the Institute for Construction Management at Darmstadt Technical University makes a decisive contribution to lifelong learning. The aim of this Master's programme is to combine application-oriented and practice-relevant specialisations with the latest research results.

The Master of Science Construction Law and Construction Industry is subdivided into the sub-areas construction law and construction industry. Modules from the field of construction include the real estate market and real estate valuation, opportunity and risk management as well as calculation, pricing and controlling. Additionally, the programme focuses on public and private construction law, architects' and engineers' law, national and international construction contracts, dispute resolution models and the organisation of legal, economic and ecological aspects of the realisation of construction projects.

The module size is 5 CP throughout. The mandatory area (50 CP) and the optional area (10 CP) together form the core area. In addition, there is the optional area and the recognition of Prior Learning in the amount of 30 CP. The Master's thesis of 30 CP completes the course of study.
