Additional Information

Everything you need to know about this course!

This course has been designed for students that have a BSc/BEng and wish to undertake further studies in order to expand their horizons to management and planning aspects of built environment operations. On the other hand students from non-Civil Engineering backgrounds, who wish to register on the course, will be exposed to subject areas such as environmental and transportation engineering in order to develop expertise to Civil engineering related disciplines.

The course has a blend of technical and management related modules that combine analytical and theoretical elements, which equip the students with the qualities that will allow them to demonstrate understanding of current engineering practices. In order to achieve the above, the programme will be supported by activities that have been designed following collaboration with university partners, research centres and professional institutions”.
We are currently developing the Springfield Campus which will be Europe’s largest construction centre of excellence.  Join us as the exciting development takes shape and from 2019/20 students in the School of Architecture and the Built environment will be taught from the new campus.

Find out more about Springfield Campus.

At the end of this course you, the student, will be able to:
  1. exercise leadership within an effective team environment while analysing and recognising the contributions of individuals and demonstrate understanding of current engineering practice
  1. appraise, critique and update a plan of work to reflect a changing operating environment and evaluate the commercial risks
  1. demonstrate knowledge, skills and understanding of management and business practices and a wide range of engineering materials and components
  1. apply innovative design processes in unfamiliar situations and engineering techniques in a range of commercial and industrial constraints
