The theory you learn in lectures will be supported by practical experience and activities, including field trips and site visits so you can apply your learning to real-world settings. In your final year, you’ll learn about the refurbishment of heritage buildings, including wide-scale regeneration of existing buildings, and carry out your own research and dissertation into an area of construction management you find of interest.
