Construction managers supervise operations to ensure projects are completed safely, on time, and within budget. As a construction manager you'll be the main point of contact for subcontractors and the public, overseeing all aspects of a project, from quality management to monitoring progress and costs. Linking the design and construction of buildings, the course focuses on the technical, professional and managerial aspects of construction projects. With an emphasis on buildings, sustainability, technology and management, you’ll develop a wealth of knowledge and the professional skills required to successfully manage complex construction projects.
