Course summary

Ensuring that a building project runs smoothly, with enough materials, equipment, workers and money to deliver it, is a huge task. So, too, is monitoring construction quality and progress. This course will give you the knowledge and contacts to take on that kind of responsibility. You’ll learn a broad range of skills in your first year, sharing modules with Civil Engineering and Surveying. Later you can choose to specialise in specific construction management disciplines. Thanks to our excellent links with industry, graduates from this course have gone on to work on projects all over the world. Some have been involved with UK construction projects such as the Shard and the Olympic Athletes’ Village in Stratford. Others have travelled internationally to areas of dynamic regeneration such as Dubai or Qatar. Many of our overseas students go back to work in countries such as Nigeria and Malaysia Your most likely job on graduation will be an assistant site manager, working in a role where you have responsibility for a broad range of activities. If you perform impressively on site, and deal well with people, you could soon find yourself taking responsibility for really large projects. A typical project will take 18 months or two years, during which time you’ll be working very closely with a wide variety of people performing different jobs. Say you’re working on a rail project, or on the London Underground. Work often needs to be scheduled for weekends and Bank Holidays. You might spend six months planning for one Bank Holiday weekend, booking in equipment, materials and labour. Imagine the satisfaction you’ll feel when everything you have planned for comes together. It’s a hugely challenging but hugely rewarding area of employment.
