Construction Management

Construction managers supervise operations to ensure projects are completed safely, on time and within budget. You'll be the main point of contact for subcontractors and the public, overseeing all aspects of a project, from quality management to monitoring progress and costs. We have over 30 years’ experience in developing successful construction graduates. Our Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB)-accredited course offers a balance of vocational and theoretical content. Linking the design and construction of buildings, the course focuses on the technical, professional and managerial aspects of construction projects. With an emphasis on buildings, sustainability, technology and management, you’ll develop a wealth of knowledge and the professional skills required to successfully manage complex construction projects. You'll benefit from excellent employability prospects - 100% of our BSc (Hons) Construction Management sandwich graduates are in a professional or managerial job, just six months after graduation, earning an average salary of £26,700 (DLHE survey 2015/16). Due to a skills shortage and a boom in the construction industry, construction management graduates are heavily sought after. Our students are satisfied too - 96% of our sandwich students agreed that they were satisfied with the learning experience on their course (National Student Survey 2016). Apply your learning to the real world and network with experts in industry, with opportunities to take part in site visits and a residential surveying trip (included in course fees). Take part in live projects as part of the course, A recent project saw students work with Transport for London on proposing various upgrade projects. You'll also have the opportunity to undertake a one-year work placement in industry. You can also benefit from flexible study options, tailoring your studies to your interests; and if you have an outstanding first year, you'll have the opportunity to transfer on to our BSc (Hons) Quantity Surveying and Construction Commercial Management course.
