About Design and Construction Management at University of Greenwich

Major building projects are now so complex that large numbers of different organisations are involved in their completion. These organisations need to be co-ordinated so that, at the planning stage, the designers communicate relevant information to each other and, at the construction stage, the various parties involved work to a co-ordinated plan. This programme is a result of co-operation between the industrial and academic worlds and provides a sound foundation for a management career in the construction industry.

This degree will prepare you for a career managing complex design and construction processes. Design management co-ordinates and integrates complex information from, for example, architects and civil, structural, mechanical and electrical engineers. This enables construction managers to plan and programme work on site, before monitoring progress to ensure projects are finished on time, within budget and to the required quality. The programme has been designed to provide you with an international outlook.
