The BSc(Hons) in Construction Engineering provides you with the management skills and technical knowledge associated with the diverse and challenging industry of construction. In addition, the programme equips you with the necessary design and evaluation techniques to be able to make professional judgements on technological, social and ethical issues during the planning and execution of construction projects.
By the end of the programme, you will have an understanding of how human and material resources can be effectively managed. You are expected to work independently, with a significant amount of research and self-directed study both within, and outside, the Institute environment.
Modules will be assessed by means of formative and summative assessments. Assessments will consist of coursework in written form, practical tasks and time-constrained tests. Additionally, learners will be assessed on their dissertation.
