This course has been designed for students who work within the construction industry and/or have an interest in building projects. The content of the units in the BSc explores a range of different theories and solutions and allows the student to gain knowledge of how building projects are formulated and managed. This is achieved by consistently exploring three key themes throughout the duration of the course – construction management, construction technology and environmental sciences, to allow a broad range of knowledge to be gained.

Assessment is centred on the practical and professional skills required by industry. Consequently, assessment focuses on the implementation of practical solutions to specified problems. Assignment briefs use an appropriate scenario that reflects the professional and technical skills required by industry, and group work is used to promote transferable skills in appropriate modules. Communication skills are developed through a range of delivery methods including presentation, reports and discussion. The assessment strategy has been designed to be robust, equitable and manageable. As part of the programme assessment strategy, the number and timing of summative assessments associated with modules has been considered. This has been done to prevent assessment overload, which can result in fractionalisation and discourage student engagement. The particular assessment strategies used in each module have been selected to match the expressed learning outcomes. The distribution of learning outcomes has been considered to ensure all the programme outcomes are assessed. A variety of assessment tools have been used to ensure the assessment strategy harnesses all students preferred assessment methods.
