Ensuring that a building project runs smoothly, with enough materials, equipment, workers and money to deliver it, is a huge task. So, too, is monitoring construction quality and progress. This course will give you the knowledge and contacts to take on that kind of responsibility. You'll learn a broad range of skills in your first year, sharing modules with Civil Engineering and Surveying. Later you can choose to specialise in specific construction management disciplines. There are so many aspects to construction management - sorting out resources, materials and labour, planning transport routes. It's all about what we call 'supply chain management'. You have to make sure everything runs efficiently - and that means a lot of work in many different areas. You need to have good interpersonal skills and be comfortable working as part of a large team. And you have to keep in mind your client's requirements at all times. This course will help you learn how to juggle all these responsibilities successfully.

We'll assess you with a mixture of coursework and exams. Coursework includes essays, research reports, group and seminar presentations and a final-year project. Most of the assessment in your first year is by coursework and we'll give you as much feedback as possible. The balance of coursework and exams in year two will depend on your optional choices. In your third year, part of your assessment will be based on your final research project and the rest will be a mixture of coursework and exams. Feedback is provided within 15 working days in line with UEL's assessment and feedback policy.

Applicants should have, or be working towards, grade C in GCSE English and Mathematics (or equivalent Level 2 qualification such as Functional Skills Level 2 in English and Mathematics or Key Skills Level 2 in Application of Number and Communication) Entry requirements are intended only as a guide for applicants. They are not a guarantee of an offer, nor of the conditions that may apply. When making a decision on your academic suitability, we will make an assessment of you as an individual and will use information other than qualifications; which may include predicted grades, performance at Level 2, relevant work experience, previous study at degree level, personal statement, references and any portfolio, written test or interview, to make our decision.
