The construction industry is one of the most dynamic, diverse and significant in the world. We live, work and play in the built environment, and our Construction Management course will develop your skills, knowledge and understanding of both the technology and management involved in its creation across the key stages and process of planning, construction and maintenance. These range from building design and technology, to the management of resources (people, materials and equipment), to the assurance of the health, safety and well-being of the workforce, to the administration of projects and stakeholder engagement, all as they are carried out within contemporary regulatory, legal, economic, and social contexts, and with reference to the latest thinking in sustainability and developments in digital technologies and Building Information Modelling (BIM).
You’ll use our specialist facilities including industry-standard surveying equipment and a dedicated computer suite offering the latest in CAD, 3D Modelling, project management and financial software. During the course you will also develop your communication, numerical, IT, teamwork, analytical and problem solving skills within a Built Environment context. The part-time course is closely aligned to work practice, and the development of your professional skills is embedded throughout and linked to authentic, realistic and practical assessment within many of the modules. Students are also encouraged to attend the various professional body CPD events regularly held here at ARU, to begin to develop your own industry networks and meet other young professionals from the region.Leader, Dr Fred Sherratt MCIOB C.BuildE CABE, has over ten years’ experience of working within the construction industry for a large main contractor, before becoming an award-winning academic specialising in construction health and safety research. As well as writing textbooks, articles and research papers, Fred maintains a strong industry network, and the course offers opportunities to visit a variety of construction sites and listen to guest lectures from industry experts, which recently included Trowers and Hamlins LLP on the subject of Modern Slavery in construction. Fred’s professional and academic links ensure you will be getting the most up to date industry information, exploring the most relevant contemporary issues for practice, and drawing on the latest research and innovations from academia within your course curriculum, making this a dynamic and highly relevant course for those starting to build their career within the construction industry.
We look forward to welcoming you onto our Construction Management course here at ARU and supporting you on your way to becoming a chartered construction professional of the future.
Our course is fully accredited by the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) and the Chartered Association of Building Engineers (CABE).
A degree in Construction Management can lead to a number of careers within the industry, including working as a construction project manager or construction site manager for contractors or construction clients. Key within these roles is the ability to ensure that construction projects are completed on time, within budget, to the correct quality standards, healthily and safely, and with due recognition of wider sustainability and environmental issues. The construction industry is very varied and the degree will also give you a great foundation for other career paths such as construction planning or becoming a BIM manager.
The average salary for a construction manager in the UK is £40,002 per year* with the ability to earn well over £60,000 per year as an experienced Construction/Site Manager.
