What you'll learn on the course
Are you looking to further your career in construction? Get an insight into building design, production, management and the technologies used in the industry with our course. When you graduate, you can go straight into work or do a top-up year to achieve an honours degree.
Mixing vital theory with hands-on learning, you’ll immerse yourself in the world of construction.
We'll give you a taste of the whole construction process, including surveying, quantity surveying and architectural technology. After a broad introduction to the construction industry, you’ll get the chance to decide what interests you the most and then specialise in your chosen construction area.
You’ll learn to predict and analyse potential problems in building, and to create workable and economic solutions. You’ll also gain vital skills that will give you the confidence to communicate effectively and be able to present complex concepts to clients.
Put your learning to the test on site visits and with our specialist facilities, including site-standard surveying equipment and a dedicated computer suite offering the latest in CAD, project management and financial software. We also have labs for geotechnics, hydraulics, structures, engineering materials and concrete-testing.
We also offer our Constructionarium which is a week-long construction experience.
When you finish, you might decide to continue your studies and progress to an honours degree in Construction Management, Building Surveying or Quantity Surveying.
