You will gain an understanding of the way technology is transforming construction, and will be ready and equipped to work with this technology. You will also learn more about contemporary issues facing the industry – in particular sustainability and the environment – and about the role that construction plays in addressing these issues.
The construction industry is a very practical, technical and hands-on environment, and teaching and learning on the course reflects this. You will learn from real life examples, work-related learning, practical sessions, site inspections and expert guest speakers from the sector – all of which brings learning to life and makes for a dynamic student experience.
