Construction is changing at a fast pace with new innovations with robotics, BIM and offsite production techniques. New Procurement routes are being established and ways of addressing the skill shortages. This course is designed to prepare and develop construction management specialists for a range of technical, professional and management career disciplines in construction and the built environment. The emphasis is on participation and students are encouraged to carry out research activities, work with others as part of a team, demonstrate an ability to work independently without supervision, solve problems, and interact effectively in a work situation. It is suitable for both new candidates and those already in the sector wishing to up skill to advance their career prospects.
The FdSc and BSc (Hons) Construction Management courses continue to be accredited by the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) and the course was developed to match the professional institute and employers requirements.
As work-related learning is an important characteristic of these courses, work placements or relevant professional activity is an essential requirement for study. It is expected that most part-time students will be in appropriate professional situations. Many of the modules are delivered by practising professionals employed in the local construction industry and site visits are an important part of the course.
