Construction Engineering Management (with placement year) at Loughborough University - UCAS

Course summary

Our Construction Engineering Management course provides the best foundation for a career in construction project management, providing the underpinning technical and managerial knowledge and transferable skills. Society requires an integrated built environment in which buildings and infrastructure work together to support our evolving ways of life. This requires the multitude of construction professions to be adept at forming project teams that integrate expertise to provide solutions that work. Our School reflects the need for this integration in the interactions amongst our courses. Construction Engineering Management students understand each profession’s perspective on what the built environment should be and how it is best created during the design and construction phases, and how it is operated in the long term. Our approach to learning helps our graduates understand the other professions they will be working with, giving them the ability to integrate well into the construction sector so they can excel in multidisciplinary teams. This course is actively supported by the Loughborough Construction Consortium. These companies offer sponsorship, work placements and graduate jobs for students, and enable practical experience in the form of site visits and guest speakers.
