Construction Engineering Management course overview

The BSc in Construction Engineering Management is a four-year sandwich course fully accredited by the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB).

This is a multidisciplinary, broad-based building course with a focus on the technical and managerial aspects of construction project management.

The programme is sponsored by a consortium of contractors. The consortium companies offer sponsorships, work placements and graduate jobs for the students, and enable practical experience for the students in the form of site visits and guest speakers.

The course is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Building, and prepares its graduates for a wide range of management roles in the construction industry.

Professional recognition

The BSc in Construction Engineering Management is a four-year sandwich course fully accredited by the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB).

Sponsorships

Suitable applicants will be invited to attend a recruitment day and will be interviewed by both members of academic staff and members of the sponsoring consortium.

In reaching decisions about sponsorship, companies will consider work permit restrictions and expect students to be eligible to work in the UK after graduation. It is likely therefore that students from non-EU countries will not be offered sponsorship.
