Careers in construction have an impact that everyone sees. This is big stuff that must work with the wider environment while underpinning economic and social development. Or hadn’t you thought of it like that?
The construction programme begins with the HNC Construction and the Built Environment (Building Services Engineering), progressing to the foundation degree qualification, FdSc Construction Management and finally the full BSc (Hons) Construction Management (progression route).
The programme was developed to meet the requirements of key industry partners, the Chartered Institute of Building, Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers and Construction Industry Council.
In each course you will be developing your knowledge of fundamentals and more in depth aspects of construction, whilst enhancing your immediate employability in the industry. The courses encourage you to expand your knowledge through projects, simulations and presentations with an emphasis on your participation carrying out research and working in teams much as in industry.
As work-related learning is an important characteristic of these courses, work placements or relevant professional activity is an essential requirement for study. It is expected that most part-time students will be in appropriate professional situations. Many of the modules are delivered by practising professionals employed in the local construction industry and site visits are an important part of the courses.
Following the path from HNC to BSC (Hons) will equip you with the skills and much relevant industry experience to progress in an existing career or embark on your own adventures in the construction industry in the UK or abroad.
