Study Construction Management at ARU. Use industry-standard surveying equipment and computer-aided design, 3D modelling, project management and financial software. Have you got the vision and drive to work in the construction industry? Get the skills, knowledge and understanding you need by studying our Construction Management degree course. It's accredited by the Chartered Institute of Building and Chartered Association of Building Engineers (foundation year not accredited by CIOB). Based in Chelmsford or Peterborough, you’ll use industry-standard surveying equipment and the latest in computer-aided design, 3D modelling, project management and financial software. You can choose to take a placement year and further develop your professional skills, as you work towards becoming a chartered construction professional. The construction industry is one of the most dynamic, diverse and significant in the world. We live, work and play in the built environment, and our Construction Management degree course will develop your skills, knowledge and understanding of the technology and management involved in its creation. We'll focus on the key stages and process of planning, construction and maintenance. These range from building design and technology, to resource management and project administration. You’ll learn about regulatory, legal and economic frameworks, the latest thinking in sustainability, and developments in digital technologies and Building Information Modelling (BIM). Practical experience comes in the form of a week-long residential visit where you’ll take part in the construction of an iconic building or structure – learning management and construction trade skills along the way. The development of professional skills is embedded throughout the course, linked to authentic, practical assessment in many modules. You’ll also develop your communication, numerical, IT, teamwork, analytical and problem-solving skills. With an eye on your future, we encourage you to attend regular CPD events to start to build your own industry networks. The course offers opportunities to visit a variety of construction sites, listen to guest lectures from industry experts, and get the most up-to-date industry information as well as being taught by staff with both extensive industrial and professional experience alongside an academic and research pedigree.
