Construction Engineering Management BSc (Hons)

Course description

BSc (Hons) Construction Engineering Management explores how different parts of the construction process fit together, and how you can manage that process to deliver the best results for society and the environment. There is a growing need for managers who have expertise across construction, engineering and management. Currently there is a shortage of such managers and so this course will give you excellent career prospects. You will study a number of business and management modules to give you the skills you need to manage a range of construction projects. These include Commercial Management, Law and Procurement, and Management of People.

A particular strength of the course is the opportunity to undertake a year-long work placement with a construction/engineering company. The course’s relevance and rigour is reflected by its accreditation by the Chartered Institute of Building.
