Abstract

The construction management education is by far still evolving in meeting the 21stcentury education challenges in producing highly capable and competitive graduates. This circumstance is in part contributed by inadequate planning in designing programmes. The development of programmes till adapts the traditional approach in the design which seems short in providing and delivering a comprehensive program. One significant finding that contributes to this issue was related to an absence of a generally accepted term of reference. This study aims to test a working common recognize term of reference framework against the available construction management programme offered in the Malaysian public university. A qualitative approach has been chosen as the primary method which uses document analysis as the main technique to test the framework with the assistance of N-Vivo software. In this study, a working reference framework has been tested by mapping several undergraduate construction management programme syllabuses onto the framework. The findings found that the syllabuses are lacking in several technical areas and it is suggested that this framework can assist in the improvement of the programs by identifying the critical area that needs to be focus on.
