One purpose of this qualification is to provide qualifiers with postgraduate-level knowledge, specific skills and applied competence in Housing Development and Management. Another purpose of this qualification is to produce graduates who can contribute to the provision of housing and take part in the housing policy development debate whilst helping to achieve the national objectives of social and economic growth. Many African countries are experiencing a housing crisis. The provision of housing and the formulation of housing policy are urgent priorities. In addition, housing policies require that a developmental delivery process be employed in providing the houses, rather than simply providing mass housing. Developmental delivery includes community participation in decision-making, community empowerment through job creation, and sustainable skills creation and other measures.

This programme is intended to satisfy this need at the academic level of a Master's degree.
