This course is for those who wish to develop a professional approach to construction - both on and off-site. Students who have been on the course previously have come from employment areas such as design, site management, quality surveying, surveying and craft areas. The construction department has over 30 years of experience in delivering HE programmes and has always given a high profile to this part of its provision. The course offers a flexible, modular driven programme, which provides students with high quality learning experiences.

Our programme directly services the needs of local and national contractors, thus enabling the department to maintain its links with the roots of the industry. Technologists in the form of builders are in great demand, locally, nationally and internationally, to carry out highly skilled and professional jobs.

Mandatory core units may include:

  • Individual project
  • Construction technology
  • Science and materials
  • Construction practice and management
  • Legal statutory responsibilities in construction
  • Construction information (drawing, detailing, specification)
  • Surveying, measuring and setting out
