Health Projects

Equip yourself for employment in Aotearoa’s rapidly growing heath infrastructure field.

Subject overview

Channel your project management career into a growing health infrastructure sector. Governments are investing capital in health infrastructure projects as the world population ages and population growth projections soar. The New Zealand Ministry of Health has allocated a substantial investment over the next 20 years to upgrade current facilities and meet regional demand. The industry needs your leadership to successfully implement these critical health projects.
