The overarching aim of the programme is to produce construction engineering and management graduates who have obtained the relevant competencies to perform the roles within one of the many disciplines of construction engineering and construction management. The programme aims to produce professional construction managers and engineers equipped with technical and managerial skills. This is commensurate with the requirements of the associated professional body, the construction industry public and private sectors as a whole. The management of construction projects on site is a vital part of the construction process however, the success of the project on site is influenced by decisions taken at project initiation - planning, pricing, procurement and contract management are vital. The Construction Engineering and Management course includes core subjects such as construction technology, construction law, economics and construction management.
Teaching, Learning and Assessment
The course has a modular structure nominally with 5-8 modules taken in each of the academic years as shown below. Modules are taught in the autumn and spring semesters. Assessment is considered in many forms to include essays, reports, laboratory and surveying practical tests, CAD class tests, on-line test and end of semester formal examinations.
Construction management is one of a family of disciplines concerned with the Built Environment. The planning, design, production, adaptation, maintenance, management and recycling of the built environment require interaction between disciplines. A career within construction engineering and management often encompasses a wide range of responsibilities which require a wide knowledge, skills and competencies base. Career options include construction management, site management, facilities management, building control and contract management.
