Einführung

Accredited by: CIOB RICS

Construction Managers, based on site and in the office, work with a wide range of people, from architects to construction workers.

This programme covers a wide variety of technical, financial and planning aspects in theory and practice, using both traditional and online teaching methods. Most Construction Management graduates in Scotland have trained at GCU.

Industry experts provide guest lectures throughout the programme and as part of the programme's commitment to enhancing the personal, professional and employability skills of our students, in Year 3 there are opportunities to spend six months on a work placement. There are also opportunities to study abroad, in Europe, Australia, and the USA.

The programme is fully accredited by the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).

Your career

Graduates have gone on to work for major companies such as Lend Lease, BAM Construction, Clark Contracts, Galliford Try, Sir Robert McAlpine, Balfour Beatty, Laing O'Rourke, McLaughlin and Harvey, Persimmon Homes and Ogilvie Construction.

International student start dates

For new international students, orientation events start on 14 September 2018. This extra time is specifically designed to assist new international students in settling into the UK and GCU prior to the start of general student induction and teaching.

There will be a whole host of fun and informative activities taking place during this period, including campus and city tours, as well as welcome events where you can meet other international students.

Part-time study

The part-time BSc Construction Management degree is one of only two available in Scotland.

Chartered status

Accredited by the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM) and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), your degree can take you to employment and further study around the world. On successful completion of their degree, many graduates work towards chartered membership status MCIOB and MRICS.

Work placement

Third-year work placements can be completed in Scotland or abroad. These are not compulsory or guaranteed.

Links with industry

The programme has been developed very much in partnership with the construction industry. This ensures teaching modules reflect and develop current best practice and graduates are well equipped to enter careers at management level. We have a very strong record of graduate employment due to the high regard with which the programme is held throughout the industry.

HM Forces

In partnership with HM Forces, GCU has identified this programme is being particularly suited to military and ex-military men and women. Visit the HM Forces Careers Zone for more information on the services we provide.

Assessment methods

A unique element of our course, which is mainly assessed through our students’ coursework, is the preparation for placement module, a practical four-day insert undertaken at the National Construction College Scotland. As well as industrial site visits as part of their construction technology modules, our students also have the opportunity to take part in a European study tour, which in 2012 involved our students going to Barcelona. The programme has strong links with industry and many industrial organizations provide opportunities for placements and they also offer guest lectures in a number of modules.

Teaching methods

Between the end of Level Two and the beginning of Level Three, our students have the chance to undertake a seven-month work placement programme. Many of our students who do so find employment in these organizations when they finish their programme of study with us. Our students are prepared for a role in ‘setting out’ through the use of some surveying based equipment. We have strong links with industry and keep our course relevant to industry’s requirements, by inviting guests and former students to lecture our current cohort. We also have strong links with professional bodies who illustrate to our students the value and recognition achieved by becoming chartered.
