This is a full-time only version of the MSc Offsite Housing Construction course that aims to provide an industrial placement opportunity during Semester 3 (May to October). This extends the minimum learning period to 15 months. You will have the opportunity to do a six-month industrial placement with a top UK offsite construction organisation, for a real taste of the UK construction industry.
This innovative programme offers a multi-disciplinary, practice-based approach toward offsite housing construction. This course is specifically designed to address national, European and international market needs for delivering houses faster without compromising quality using innovative and modern methods of construction.
This course is being developed in response to the anticipated demand for offsite construction in the next 10 years nationally and internationally. By focusing on real-world projects and case studies, the course will expose students to live issues currently being faced by the offsite construction sector. Understanding these problems and developing solutions will ensure students are at the forefront of the industry.
We have highly motivated and friendly lecturers delivering this course, and you will have the opportunity to engage with a range of learning approaches during your studies. The course provides you with the opportunity to take part in collaborative lectures and seminars. This will be supported by guest lectures and workshops from industry practitioners, and you’ll be able to discuss your projects with them to gain real-world insight into the problems you are trying to solve. Staff from the Ministry of Building, Innovation and Enterprise (MOBIE) will underpin these.
