Offering substantial hands-on experience and recently accredited by the Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors, our BSc (Hons) Construction Management and Property Development is an excellent route into a career offering a high level of responsibility and rewards.

The first stage of the course introduces you to practical skills in construction technology, develops your ability to interpret data and gives you an understanding of the theories of construction management. Throughout, we encourage you to challenge accepted ideas and analyse competing theories.

As you progress, you will gain a deeper knowledge of construction management through Interdisciplinary Professional Practice and Independent Study.
