The planning and control of resources and the detailed and prescient matching of design and production to the needs of the market for built space are at the very core of the construction and property industries.
This programme offers graduates and built environment professionals an opportunity to update their technical knowledge and enhance their skills to reflect the demands of the construction industry. Through the programme, students can participate in professional development and achieve career progression in what is a challenging and growing discipline.
The university has invested £76 million in a new building to house the campus library, TV studios and academic facilities for disciplines including architecture, design and construction. Stockwell Street, where the programme will be delivered, is a short walk from the university's buildings on the Old Royal College site.
The aims of the programme are:
- To teach students to plan and control the allocation of resources
- To demonstrate ways of matching design and production to the needs of the market for built space
- To broaden the abilities of graduates to think strategically and respond creatively to volatile economic conditions.
