University of Brighton has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
As a construction manager you will be involved in the planning and coordination of a project from concept to completion, ensuring the client’s needs are met. On the course, you will explore solutions to complex and often unforeseen problems and learn how to advise on their operational and commercial consequences. You will learn to coordinate the manufacturing process and how to manage on-site activities, specifically construction planning and the analysis of construction methods, working in interdisciplinary teams that provide real-life scenarios for theory and practice. You will develop your knowledge and skills through site visits, field trips, practical laboratory workshops and the latest technologies. This includes the opportunity to learn Building Information Modelling (BIM) to level 2, giving you a competitive advantage when you graduate. Senior representatives of construction companies, architects and surveyors from around the region meet regularly at our industrial liaison panel to review our courses, ensuring they remain up-to-date and relevant to industry. The option of a work placement year helps to cement your learning and build both your experience and network of professional contacts. The course is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), exempting graduates from the chartered membership examination, and by the Chartered Association of Building Engineers (CABE), providing the opportunity for further learning leading to Chartered Engineer status (CEng) under the provisions of UK-SPEC.
