Course description

Through a combination of the active links of the programme team with industry and the strong emphasis on project work throughout the programme, this programme provides a sound general education in the different aspects of this fi eld while remaining close to the practical needs of those who wish to develop a career in construction. The Work Experience module in the third year of the programme allows the student to experience at fi rst hand, the challenges and opportunities of working in the industry. This qualifi cation has been accredited to the Chartered Institute of Building and now gives full exemption from the educational requirements of Corporate Membership. Career Opportunities This award is particularly suitable for those who wish to attain positions in contracts management, project management or general management of construction related activities. While it is expected that most graduates will specialise in roles that operate in the actual building phase of projects, the breath of the programme allows graduates to develop a career across all of the phases of the construction cycle. Graduates from earlier programmes, from which this programme has been developed, have found careers in large and small companies and across a range of occupations in both the public and private sectors. Many have attained a high level in management where they are now executive directors or managing directors
