Course Introduction

On this course, you will gain a thorough grounding in the construction environment, its processes and the nature of the industry. You will also gain knowledge of project planning, project finance, and the regulatory framework in contract law and health & safety. You will also get an understanding of the influence of sustainable design and the need for efficient delivery of a project in terms of time, cost, and quality. With a long history of teaching civil engineering and construction programmes, matching industry-based learning with academic excellence, UEL's Construction Management, BSc (Hons) gives you everything you will need to fast-track your career. Most graduates go on to technical and professional employment in the industry and we have excellent links to employers and construction projects. The course has a common core, which will provide you with a good grounding in a broad skill-based area of study; academic skills in the built environment, quantitative methods, management and organisation, and construction technology. In the second year, you will go on to develop technical skills in estimating, planning, cost control, building services, and site organisation. The third year opens up the professional avenues of strategic and ethical management, lean construction techniques and sustainable procurement and supply chain management. The final year also includes a major individual project dissertation and the 'Constructionarium' field trip.
