    The main aims of the course is to give learners training and qualification for a career in construction management and to consolidate and advance the skills and knowledge attained on their construction related level 7 programme. The programme aims to create for the learner a multi-discipline environment in which real life projects are worked on. The subjects covered give a wide range of expertise pertinent to the construction industry allied with more general business & management modules.
    Construction Management (1&2) modules will use problem based learning to introduce the learners to real life situations and challenges in pre and post contract management. The learner base will potentially consist of graduates of four different disciplines (Civil Engineering, Building Services & Renewable Energy Engineering, Quantity Surveying and Architectural Technology) who will form multi-disciplinary teams with different backgrounds and engage in teamwork and peer learning. Mature learners will bring their prior experience to the programme and contribute to a dynamic mix of professions.
    Minimum Entry Requirements
    A Bachelor of Science (Level 7) in a construction related discipline such as Construction or Architectural Technology, Civil Engineering, Building Services Engineering or Quantity Surveying.

    Career Opportunities
    Due to the retraction of the industry, it is envisaged that there will be a lack of suitably trained construction personnel with the knowledge and skills required to manage the construction projects of the future. The programme focuses on the sustainability of construction methods as the main bulk of construction activity in Ireland is now in the area of retrofitting and energy upgrading of existing properties. The programme also introduce the learner to emerging technologies such as Building Information Modelling (BIM) that is becoming the industry standard worldwide
