Course content

Currently accredited by the Chartered Institute of Builders (CIOB) and studied on campus or 100% online, this industry-focused course is designed to have a wide appeal – for architects, engineers, surveyors, construction managers, facilities managers, legal practitioners or any construction professional seeking a management career in the industry.

This course contains Building Information Modelling (BIM).

Developed in partnership with industry, this course aims to help you to progress your career in construction management and improve your skills in project delivery, leadership, decision making, strategic thinking and communication.

By studying theory/management practices and examining real-life case studies like the Millennium Dome and the Channel Tunnel, you will be taught how to manage complex construction projects from the initial planning stages; analysing corporate problems and presenting appropriate solutions from implementation and completion, managing project teams, procurement, finance, risk and health and safety.

Our aim is to support the development of high-level knowledge, wide-ranging understanding and professional skills in both the theoretical and practical aspects of strategic management in the construction industry. You will study the economics behind construction, examining the regulatory and legal framework within which the industry operates, as well as health and safety in the construction workplace. You will also cover the corporate management processes used within the construction industry, such as procurement systems and standard forms of construction contracts.

The course examines how the built and natural environments interact, ever conscious of the need for sustainable construction, together with the environmental principles and legislation applied to the construction industry. You will be encouraged to engage in topical discussions about a wide range of issues, from sustainability demands in construction to environmental and economic considerations in shaping construction trends.

As part of your degree, you will be required to undertake an independent research project in construction, which can be based on a topic of your choice.
