Despite the downturn in the economy, construction remains hugely important as an industry and there is an ever-present need for skilled and resourceful project managers, nationally and internationally, as companies seek to carry out projects as efficiently and effectively as possible.
The construction industry has seen many rapid changes in recent years, with the advent of new technologies and the extensive use of computer-based techniques. Added to this are developments in new materials with enhanced performance and new construction techniques. There is also the interdisciplinary challenge, with a blurring of boundaries taking place between traditional roles, both in construction and other areas requiring highly developed managerial skills in the overseeing of complex projects. Becoming a project and construction manager will mean you will be trained in the fundamentals of civil engineering, construction, and business and economics. You will learn about managerial and accounting principles, get an introduction to human resources management and progress to getting an insight into the concepts of financial management. Other focuses over the four-year programme are health and safety law, quality management and planning, which is evolving to take account of changing environmental concerns, and sustainability issues. The course will provide you with the capacity to critically analyse and apply problem solving skills across a growing and diverse number of construction specialisms.
