BSc (Hons) Project Management (Surveying)

Project managers are usually involved with a project throughout its lifecycle; from early feasibility and design stages, through to construction and handover. This RICS-accredited Project Management degree prepares you for a variety of project management roles in the construction industry. You will develop core project management skills that reflect the needs of the profession, such as programming and planning, project administration, risk management, construction technology, contract practice, health and safety, sustainability, and managing people.

You will study the latest practice and procedures for the project management of new-build and refurbishment projects. Your studies will cover industrial initiatives such as strategic partnering and collaboration, prefabrication and offsite manufacture, Building Information Modelling (BIM), and dispute resolution. You will also learn how to apply critical thinking to your experiences, which will help you work towards continuous professional development.
