Today’s construction industry is facing the challenges of globalisation, climate change, demanding clients and a complex regulatory framework. The growing importance of technology and integrated delivery plays an increasingly important role in the industry.
This course will give you the skills to deal with these challenges. With social innovation at the core of the programme, you will learn through creative social problem solving and working with our industrial partners. You’ll also develop the intellectual and practical competence required by professional bodies such as (Chartered Institute of Building) CIOB and Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).
You’ll leave with a broad knowledge of the legal, technical, managerial, economic, social and environmental aspects of construction projects, and be able to confidently manage both commercial and civil engineering projects.
This course is taught by experienced staff with a wealth of industry experience. A flexible approach for construction professionals to allow you to study alongside your professional role.
You’ll gain expertise in cost management, procurement and quantification skills. You’ll also develop expertise in risk management, costing techniques, design economics, buildability, procurement, ability to add value and an appreciation of people from different cultural backgrounds and construction disciplines.
