About this course

4years

Full-time | 2019

Our BSc (Hons) Construction (Project Management) with Foundation Entry course is designed for students who want to study Construction, but don’t have the necessary formal qualifications to start the Honours degree programme just yet.

The BSc (Hons) Construction Project Management is a 4 year, full-time, Honours degree for students who wish to study construction but with the emphasis on Project Management. The discipline of project management has become central to the management approach adopted by numerous UK and international industries in both public and private sector. From construction and civil engineering to heavy industry, there is a growing recognition of the benefits strategic project management can bring.

Our Construction Project Management qualification equips graduates with the knowledge and skills to develop successful careers as professional project managers across all sectors of the construction industry. The UK construction industry continues to be one of the country's most important economic sectors. The sector accounts for just over 9% of the UK's workforce making it the 3rd largest sector of employment in the UK. The opportunities within construction employment are set to increase in the coming years - with employment in this sector set to grow as others decrease. There is anticipated demand in particular for highly qualified construction professionals.
