The construction industry has witnessed a marked change over the last few years, increasingly moving away from the traditional approach to project management in construction to a more integrated approach, fusing together the design and construction elements where once they would be viewed as separate management disciplines. Therefore a graduate entering the construction management arena must be well equipped to cope with the demands of the construction industry and its expectations of project management. The School of the Built Environment has 100% graduate employment rate for Project Management in Construction, with graduates employed in a number of related fields including the built environment, civil engineering, heavy engineering, offshore and petrochemical industries.
