Course description

With the prediction of the construction industry being worth more than £140 billion in 2017, the industry continues to remain a strong sector in the UK economy. If you are looking for a career in this field our degree will give you the skills and knowledge to help you succeed in the management of projects of all sizes. Our construction management degree will prepare you for professional practice – covering everything from traditional and modern construction techniques, project management and health and safety through to sustainability, client management, defects and deterioration, and law. You will learn how to manage a construction site giving you the confidence to practice on completion of the course.


YEAR 1 (LEVEL 4) The first year (level 4) modules (eg Academic & Professional Development, Sustainable Development, Site Appraisal) comprise a set of building blocks that introduce students to the range of subject knowledge and practical skills required throughout the programme. Subjects are approached from a perspective of practical problem solving (Construction Technology 1, Built Environment Law) underpinned by theoretical understanding of professional knowledge. Skills development is not confined within modular parameters and students are expected, progressively, to participate in their own learning. MODULES Site Appraisal Domestic Building Construction Sustainable Development Built Environment Law Academic and Personal Development Building Information YEAR 2 (LEVEL 5) In the second year (level 5) modules cover subjects of a more complex and specialist nature (eg Development Management, Construction Management, Planning and Building Control) involving appraisal of practical situations, more complex options and policy analysis. These require students to prepare for lectures and seminars and are backed up by research skills and professional development modules that assist in linking and aiding coherence across the programme. MODULES Commercial Building Technology Construction Materials Planning and Building Control Development Management Research Proposal Renewable Energy Construction Site Management YEAR 3 (LEVEL 6) The final year (level 6) brings students into a range of challenging opportunities that enables them to demonstrate their achievement in variable option analysis and assessment (eg Project Management), creative thinking, teamwork and leadership skills (eg Inter-Professional Studies), independent learning, critical analysis and synthesis skills (Dissertation), and cognate professional knowledge (eg Construction Technology 3, Health and Safety). MODULES Modern Methods of Construction Dissertation Project Management Health and Safety Management Inter-Professional Studies The information listed in this section is an overview of the academic content of the programme that will take the form of either core or option modules. Modules are designated as core or option in accordance with professional body requirements and internal academic framework review, so may be subject to change.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Want to take a degree that is definitely in demand? Try building! We're short of graduates in this area, so most graduates get jobs quickly. Building graduates make excellent surveyors, and that's currently one of the jobs that employers find hardest to fill, so there are great opportunities available of you want to try your hand at a surveying career. Building graduates also go into jobs in site and project management and other high skilled parts of the construction industry. There are jobs to be had in most parts of the country, so if you're technically-inclined and want to work somewhere specific, it might be worth considering this as an option. Building graduates are more likely than most to start their career with an employer who gave them work experience, so it’s particularly worth trying to secure links with industry if you take this degree.
