Overview

Construction management is an established discipline managing the production of construction work, including new build, refurbishment, maintenance, and increasingly, design. Construction managers have specialist skills and knowledge in the technologies of domestic, industrial and commercial building, construction processes, planning, project life-cycle assessment, and people and business management. In addition to the core themes of management and technology this professional role requires a range of management skills including team working and effective communication.

These skills are integrated into the learning strategies of this course, enabling you typically to work in construction management, although you may also follow a career in project management, financial management or property development. Alongside the knowledge and understanding of construction management theories and the practical and technical skills needed to become a construction manager, you will gain the transferable and cognitive skills necessary for lifelong personal and professional development.

Our construction courses share a common Year 1, so students interact with those studying different pathways, gain some knowledge of the work of all professionals working in the construction industry, promoting the interdisciplinary nature of the modern construction industry. Throughout the course, construction technology and management remain central, the issue of health and safety is addressed, and the importance of sustainability is considered.

All of our courses are delivered using an enquiry-based blended learning approach involving workshops, lectures, tutorials and independent study. Our technology-enhanced learning supports independent study via synchronous online lectures, tutorials and seminars, which are captured and stored to enable you to revisit sessions online after the event. We assess your learning through a variety of methods including project work, essays and exams. The course promotes a professional approach to learning and teaching, equipping you with core skills for existing and future careers.
