This course is taught by industrial practitioners, bringing real world experiences into the classroom.
The courses primary focus is on project management using the building information modelling process. This will give you the chance to take your career forward - from a management viewpoint, not just in construction, but in other sectors as well. We teach the principles of project management, while using building information modelling.
Youll be in a class of around 50 if youre a full-time student, alongside people from places like India, China, Vietnam and Egypt. Our teaching starts in the afternoon as we know some of you will need to take time off work to attend classes. Youll have the beautiful new Graduate School at your disposal as well as the facilities within the School.
