- Year 1
Develop your understanding of the principles of low-rise domestic buildings, including building technologies, services, construction methods, and materials of both new and existing buildings. You’ll also gain knowledge of construction management practices, as well as the importance of building information modelling (BIM) to complete building projects successfully. An industry-led group project will see you work as part of a team to design an energy efficient housing development.
- Year 2
Delve more deeply into the principles of non-domestic buildings, including building technologies, services, construction methods and materials. Advance your knowledge of topics such as site organisation, programming, estimating, health and safety and environmental management. Your industry-led group project will see you design and build, or retrofit, a complex high-rise building. Top it all off with a European field trip.
- Year 3
Take advantage of an optional year of paid professional training by taking an industry placement with a company in the UK or abroad. During your placement, you'll work alongside an experienced construction manager, allowing you to put into practice the knowledge and skills gained in your first two years of study. The practical skills gained also help prepare you for both the final year of your degree, but most importantly for entering the workplace after graduation.
- Final year
Your final year will see you further develop your specialist understanding of professional management practice. Cement your skill set with in-depth knowledge of project management, team management, development management, risk management and procurement. Your industry-led consultancy project, focused on site development, will see you apply these skills with real-world implications. Lead your own research project in a construction management subject of your choice.
