Course overview: This construction management programme provides you with the skills and understanding of principles, practices and ethics in the construction industry within a national and global context. You learn the core construction management skills you need throughout a project lifecycle, including the role of digital technology in the construction industry. As a design or construction professional you are required to organise, analyse and understand increasing amounts of data - this change of role is highlighted by the UK regulations and standards, for example UK BIM mandate, BS PAS 1192 series and BS 8536 series. The course consists of six main strands of knowledge across the three years - building information modelling and information management, procurement, technologies and modular construction, sustainability and management. These are informed by one of the research-active teams in the University. Examples include successful knowledge transfer partnership projects with companies such as Ryder Architects, Unasys, Spa Architects, and organisations such as the Qatar National Research Foundation with the Qatar BIM project, which developed a whole lifecycle process assessment for the Qatar Construction Industry in using BIM. Professional accreditation for the course will be sought from the Chartered Institute of Building. After the course: A construction management degree provides you with a range of skills and knowledge, including construction technology and the role of digital technology in construction, teamwork and problem solving, which are highly valued by employers. The construction industry is one of the most important contributors to the UK economy and provides excellent career prospects for our construction management graduates. As the construction of buildings and infrastructure projects are expanding, there are numerous opportunities for you to develop areas of particular expertise relevant to your personal interests.
