About BSc Construction Management at University College of Estate Management

BSc Construction Management

-        Prepare for every challenge in a demanding and stimulating career

COURSE OVERVIEW
Construction Managers – and those who work in related professions – are accustomed to solving new problems almost every day. Being able to plan for every eventuality is one thing; dealing with it when it actually happens – and a project depends on your skills and abilities in order to stay on schedule – is something altogether more demanding. This course makes sure you have the knowledge to cope with the rigorous demands of the construction industry, and the confidence to tackle every problem that comes your way.

Who should study this course?
This course is mainly designed for people employed in the construction industry, but those outside the industry are welcome to apply if they have the determination to succeed. If you currently work in a large contracting organisation, or for commercial developers, a local authority, or within the armed forces, you’ll have an insider’s appreciation of the diversity and demands of the role. You’ll know what you’re looking for, and CEM will make sure you discover it.
