The programme provides students with a rigorous understanding of the principles, practices and ethics involved in construction management in a worldwide context up to Bachelor’s degree standard. It provides the academic underpinning necessary to prepare students for a career as a chartered builder or in other related professions and provides students with the opportunity to satisfy the academic requirements for Chartered Membership of the CIOB and RICS*.
The programme is primarily designed for people employed in the construction industry, such as those working in large contracting organisations and commercial developers and local authority or armed forces personnel. Such employment is not mandatory, but is desirable.
*Students will need to select the Commercial Management in Construction module to be eligible
Please note that from autumn 2020, UCEM will be making changes to its semester structure and module delivery as part of an ongoing commitment to provide an excellent student experience. If you enrol prior to autumn 2020, you will experience these changes as we move to a new structure and delivery model. You can find more information about the Transform Project here.
How will these changes affect me?
If you enrol prior to autumn 2020, you will experience these changes as we move to a new structure and delivery model. The changes you can expect to see will include:
➜ A simpler, more focused semester structure, where modules will be studied one at a time, in 9-week blocks
➜ More down-time from study
➜ A shift away from traditional methods of examination, towards online assessment in line with industry practice
➜ Visibility of assessment results prior to starting the next module, and the availability of in-year re-sits.
