Course summary

Turning a building design into a completed project takes a huge amount of work. You have to carefully manage experts from a range of professions and trades, and liaise with clients, end users and designers to make sure it all goes smoothly. This course aims to give you the skills to take a project to completion, on time and on budget. Construction is a global industry, and we want to give you the skills to be able to make your mark in your chosen profession. We’ll help you develop an understanding of what goes into global construction at each stage of a project, so we’ll cover the client’s initial brief through to design, procurement, construction, operations and maintenance of built assets. But it’s not all about the project in hand. We also want to help you develop transferable talents. We’ll give you the chance to work on your leadership skills, and we’ll introduce you to Lean Construction and Building Information Modelling (BIM) with insights from world-leading practitioners and academics. Lean thinking is becoming more and more important in building a sustainable global environment. We’ll give you the chance to explore why it’s important to reduce all kinds of waste in a project, and how you might go about doing it. We will also look at BIM, to show you how it could help deliver better value too. BIM enables clients, constructors and other parties to collaborate on projects, physically and virtually, wherever in the world they happen to be based. That means that projects can be managed more effectively, generating better value for clients and having less impact on society. The degree is part of our suite of architecture and built environment courses. So you’ll be studying with peers from other subjects such as Architecture, Architectural Technology and Quantity Surveying. The chance to work collaboratively in multidisciplinary teams could help you stand out when you start your career. We believe in keeping your options open as you study too. Construction Project Management BSc(Hons) is part of a suite of courses that also includes Surveying (Quantity Surveying) BSc(Hons). Once you’ve enrolled on one of the courses, you’re free to switch to one of the others (with the agreement of your tutors) between the first and second year if your interests change. You only have to apply for one course within the suite we offer. I chose to study Construction Project Management at the University of Huddersfield becasue the modules looked really interesting and speaking to module leaders during Open Days and Applicant Visit Days really sold it to me. The course is a mixture of lectures and tutorials and the lecturers are always there to help out. There are amazing opportunities to go abroad for placements and Huddersfield is just a really nice place to be! ~ Jamie Downie, Construction Project Management BSc(Hons), current student.
