Learn the theories behind building technology, construction and management; and gain experience in applying these theories in practical scenarios.
You will gain knowledge of contract procedures, cost and value engineering and conservation issues, and learn high-level management techniques, such as communication methods, budgeting and time management.
Our accreditation by the Chartered Institute of Building offers eligibility for Chartered status once you have gained work experience.
You will study the same modules, and complete the same course work as a full-time student, but over a longer period of time. You’ll generally come in to University for one day per week, and a four-year Honours degree will take around six years to complete part-time.
