**What is an Accelerated Degree?**

The School of the Built Environment now offers a new mode of study for many of its undergraduate courses; the Accelerated Degree. Whilst covering the same content as a traditional three year undergraduate degree, the accelerated degree is taught over three trimesters rather than two semesters. This more intense mode of study means that you can complete your degree in a shorter period of time, therefore allowing you to progress more quickly into work or further study.

If you choose to study Construction Project Management as a day-release accelerated degree, you will complete it in three years rather than five. The traditional three year full-time and five year part-time options for this course are still available.

**Construction Project Management**

Construction project managers lead, manage and control all construction operations. Their primary role is to ensure that construction projects are completed on-time and within budget. They identify and control resources and ensure quality standards and safety requirements are met.

Studying this degree course will teach you how to plan, organise and control construction operations, building your knowledge in all stages of the process – from initial feasibility studies through to design, construction, maintenance, refurbishment and demolition. You will also have the opportunity to take part in project orientated group work where real problems will be tackled.

This course is accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) meaning that you will be educated to the highest industry standards. You will also be encouraged to undertake a placement year in industry between your second and third year, which you will arrange with our support.

Modules

Year 1 modules may include: Technology 1; Introduction to Construction Management; Environmental Science and Services; Construction Management Project 1; Introduction to Law and Regulatory Frameworks; Economics and Management. Year 2 modules may include: Technology 2; Construction Process Management; Procurement and Administration; Lean and Offsite Production Management; Multi-disciplinary Project; Construction Management Project 2.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

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.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.
