The Makerere association of construction management students (MAC) is an association based at the College of Engineering, Design, Art and Technology (CEDAT). It was formed in November 2009 by Mr. Muhindo Abraham, a former construction management student who critically analysed the various challenges and hardships that students pursuing this crucial and fundamental course faced. He thus found the need to create a link between students and the administration. He became the 1st president of this great association.
Young as it is, the association boasts of a well inter linked network of personalities that treasure its existence and activities across the built environment and engineering fields.
Who are construction managers?
These are professionals who plan, direct and coordinate a wide variety of construction projects, including building of all types of residential, commercial and industrial structures, roads, bridges, waste water treatment plants, canals, schools, and hospitals among others.
Managers may oversee an entire project or just part and may play a very fundamental role in timely completion of cost effective and quality projects. The construction manager heads the construction team that may comprise of engineers, architects, surveyors and other trades. Therefore decisions made by the manager are very crucial to the success of any project.
“To promote managerial skills and career development in construction by providing adequate information, proper industrial relation, and a platform for the construction management students to the construction industry.’’
