In addition to accreditation within Malaysia, we seek accreditation by the relevant UK or international professional bodies in accordance with their standard procedures.

For architects, engineers and other professionals it can provide a move into project management. The programme increasingly attracts those whose qualifications and experience lie outside the field of construction, but recognise the career opportunities that exist for suitably qualified Construction Project Management graduates.
