Course content

The Construction Management programme offers a challenging academic route to becoming a qualified construction management professional. It provides an exciting and dynamic learning experience, building on your existing experiences and background. Our cutting edge expertise in engineering, construction and sustainable development enables students to develop their research and analytical capabilities at masters level. The course provides the requisite knowledge for understanding construction management as a profession. You will refer to how people, resources, organisations, built environment and the natural environment interact and take account of the unique needs and characteristics of construction projects in an environmentally sustainable fashion.

Emphasis is given to the knowledge and skills required to manage the operations on site and to report both to the client's representative and the employing organisation. You will explore site management proposals that can be used to efficiently and effectively deliver construction projects in the shortest possible time. You will also develop effective methods of conducting and controlling the execution of work to an agreed quality standard, to accepted safety standards, within budget and acceptable to all strategic stakeholders.
