Explore the key challenges facing the construction industry – from developing resilient buildings for addressing climate change, to using digital technology to manage and monitor construction projects – you’ll discover how we’re all impacted by our built environment. How you learn All our courses are designed around a set of key principles based on engaging you with the world, collaborating with others, challenging you to think in new ways, and providing you with a supportive environment in which you can thrive. On this course you’ll put your classroom learning into practice by working on real building projects, with guest lectures from internationally-recognised construction professionals, and site visits on field trips – ultimately preparing you for a successful career in construction. Our academics have a wealth of industrial experience and bring cutting-edge knowledge and research into our classrooms. At every level of the course, you’re able to learn from industry professionals who are at the frontier of their fields. You’ll also engage with the wider world of construction, exploring diverse buildings, places and communities both locally and globally. You learn through:
  • Lectures and seminars
  • Technical workshops
  • Industry visits to live construction sites and manufacturing facilities
  • Field trips – local and international
  • Independent study
  • Practice-based learning
  • Group work
  • Work placements
Key themes You’ll learn the fundamental skills of how to plan, monitor and control a project. Core modules cover building technology, materials, digital surveying, law, sustainability and resilience, economics, construction contracts, health and safety, construction costing, digital construction, people management, planning and programming, and climate action. You’ll be introduced to industry technologies such as 360 cameras and VR headsets to assess potential health and safety issues. We teach BIM (Building Information Modelling) standard methods and their application of digital technologies using cutting-edge technology and industry-specific 4D planning tools. You’ll also have the opportunity to engage with and apply research-based knowledge. This could include a feasibility study to an inner city redevelopment project – both in the UK and Europe. Or tackling the growing challenges in balancing economic, social and environmental goals in the name of ‘sustainable development'. Applied learning Your course has been designed to embrace real-world challenges and provide you with the practical skills and knowledge you need to succeed.
