Applied Mathematics for Construction and the Built Environment (CORA144)
This module provides learners with an understanding of analytical techniques and the mathematical skills needed to solve construction and engineering problems.
Design Principles and Application for Construction and the Built Environment (CORA145)
This module enables learners to gain an underpinning knowledge of design considerations and the design process. Learners will develop their ability to evaluate the planning and design phases and consider the environmental impact of construction projects. Learners will explore the roles and legal responsibilities of parties involved in construction projects. Learners will gain an understanding of how emerging technologies (BIM) affect the design and production phases of construction projects
Science and Materials for Construction and the Built Environment (CORA146)
This module introduces scientific principles relevant to the study of construction and civil engineering and provides students with a fundamental understanding of the properties and use of construction materials. It has been designed to enable students to explore scientific principles and the behaviour of materials used in the civil engineering and built environment sector.
Health, Safety and Welfare for Construction and the Built Environment (CORA147)
This module covers current health, safety and welfare legislation applicable to the construction and civil engineering sectors including the main requirements of an effective health and safety policy and its successful implementation in the workplace. Students will gain an understanding of how to identify and record hazards, assess risks and select appropriate control measures to prevent or mitigate ill health and injuries on site.
An Applied Introduction to Site Surveying Procedures for Construction and the Built Environment (CORA148)
This module develops an understanding of the principles of site surveying and cartographic detailing of construction works and the skills to use site surveying instruments, alongside an understanding of the software available.
Introduction to Project Planning and Development for Construction and the Built Environment (CORA150)
This module introduces learners to the principles and application of management as they relate to the technical and professional disciplines of construction. It is based on the principles of the Latham Report of 1994, which advocated non-adversarial, multi-disciplinary team-working. The module contextualizes the principles and application of management with respect to a learners own personal and professional practice within a group project scenario setting.
