Overview

If you are interested in construction and business and would like to develop project management skills, this course is for you. Construction project managers supervise, coordinate and direct on-site building projects, working in complex environments to ensure projects are completed on time, to the quality required and the budget allocated.

Our degree will give you an understanding of the complete construction process, including construction technology, site surveying, production management and the integration of contemporary and sustainable processes. Northumbria is a pioneer in Building Information Modelling (BIM) technology, which is embedded throughout this course, ensuring you are at the cutting edge of this emerging ­field.

With an opportunity to participate in a year-long industrial placement, you will gain valuable and practical experience alongside experienced construction project managers at companies such as Laing O’Rourke and McCarthy & Stone.

Graduates go on to work as construction project managers, with additional career opportunities in a wide range of related industries, with 85% of our students going into professional/managerial jobs or further study within six months of graduating (Unistats 2014).
