Course Introduction

Construction management is an established discipline managing the production of construction work, including new build, refurbishment, maintenance, and increasingly, design. Construction managers have specialist skills and knowledge in the technologies of domestic, industrial and commercial building, construction processes, planning, project life'cycle assessment, and people and business management. In addition to the core themes of management and technology this professional role requires a range of management skills including team working and effective communication.

These skills are integrated into the learning strategies of this course, enabling you typically to work in construction management, although you may also follow a career in project management, financial management or property development. Alongside the knowledge and understanding of construction management theories and the practical and technical skills needed to become a construction manager.

You will take six modules each year; core subjects include environmental design and engineering, fabric and performance, design principles, structures, commercial and organisational management, project management, low carbon construction, construction management, construction'based project learning, and management and professional practice. In your final year you will also choose from one of three management option modules, focusing on project evaluation and development, strategic management, or procurement and commercial management.
