What will I study?

Buildings take on many forms, from newly built facilities, to the refurbishment of premises. Upon graduation your role within as a Building and Construction Engineer undertakes the technical and commercial management of projects which provide engineering design solutions to maintain and enhance the quality of the environment and community.

You will ensure that businesses, clients and end-user needs are considered throughout the operation and you will strive to sit within financial, environmental and safety constraints. As building and construction engineers, you could be working in a design consultancy, as a contractor or with an engineering company.

The Building and Construction Engineering course covers a range of key areas, from how to manage a team of engineers and technicians and how to collaborate with other construction professionals, to design building elements and the various services found in buildings.

As well as this, digital technologies are embedded in the curriculum and are a key part of the learning and teaching along with vocational skills. The course typically includes systems such as renewable and emerging technologies, energy management, heating, ventilation, air conditioning, drainage, lighting, power, water services and building management systems. You will consider design and construction methods evaluating the social, ethical, legal, environmental and economic factors relevant to engineering. This is to ensure you can navigate through problems as they arise using a holistic understanding of the sector to make the right decisions. 

This programme runs as both a full-time and Part-time course, with part-time structured across a five-year span, so you can fit it around your other commitments outside of study.
