Students on this course will acquire knowledge of a wide variety of subjects, following through the design process from building inception and planning through technical design and regulatory compliance to costing and site procedures. The course will also consider building refurbishment, conservation and adaptation and building pathology.
A key aspect of the Programme is the strong emphasis on developing graduate skills that will be valued by potential employers. Employability is therefore a theme running throughout the Programme with the core skills module and decision making embedded throughout the course.
On completion of the Programme, students will have acquired the level of knowledge, understanding and transferable skills that will enable to take full advantage of a wide range of employment opportunities in settings related to construction or help them progress onto the BSc (Hons) Construction Management (top-up) programme delivered at Hull College Group in partnership with the Open University.
