Course summary

The overall aim of these programmes is to provide a full and satisfying vocational experience appropriate to Honours degree level, which will develop the student's ability to understand concepts, apply academic rigour and appraise critically the issues involved in the study of management in the built environment.

Course Overview

Given the sharp decline the industry has suffered in the recession it is somewhat surprising that recruitment has held up so well, this may indicate that many young people consider the industry will continue to offer rewarding employment within the UK and overseas.

However, the construction industry has the advantage that it is one of the few UK industries which cannot be shipped abroad, and there is much work needed to both the UK infrastructure and housing stock. Taken as a whole the Construction Industry is a major contributor to UK GDP (directly c. 8.5% in 2008, rising to c.10% overall when the entire value chain is considered) and a driver of historical GDP growth. The construction industry value chain consists of c.300,000 firms, including many small- and medium-sized family and local businesses. The sector employs c.3 million people in a multitude of roles representing 8% of UK employment.

Career Opportunities

This programme is designed with the above issues in mind. For example, module outcomes address concerns such as sustainability, energy efficiency, facilities management along with the more familiar outcomes such as management theories, literacy, problem-solving and client needs. Supplementing these is a range of higher level skills which have been designed to integrate with module outcomes.

This programme will meet industry demands and in doing so provide a sound intellectually demanding vocational learning experience linked to industry and professional body a requirement that satisfies the needs of both students and employers. Furthermore, the programme team has developed the aims of the programme to enhance the development of technical competence and training at a level, which is capable of meeting the industry’s current requirements for middle management.
