  • Course description
    Building Engineering BSc Honours.

    Building engineers are concerned with all activities involved in the creation and maintenance of the sustainable built environment. The main emphasis of their role is the technology of building, though specialisms enable them to focus on building design or the managerial aspects of the production and maintenance processes. Many building engineers also specialise in ?re safety engineering. Their expertise includes a detailed understanding of the statutory control of building work.

    This course is designed to give you a well-rounded but technologically based education in many aspects of the built environment. You will acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to develop your career as a building engineer for a wide range of different organisations, including local authorities, contractors, consultancies and commercial companies. You will also develop the transferable and cognitive skills necessary for lifelong personal and professional development.

    Course content:

    Our construction courses share a common Year 1, so students interact with those studying different pathways, gain some knowledge of the work of all professionals working in the construction industry, providing a common knowledge base and promoting the interdisciplinary nature of the modern construction industry. Throughout the course, construction technology and management remain central, the issue of health and safety is addressed, and the importance of sustainability is considered.

    All of our courses are delivered using an enquiry-based blended learning approach involving workshops, lectures, tutorials and independent study. Our technology-enhanced learning supports independent study via synchronous online lectures, tutorials and seminars, which are captured and stored to enable you to revisit sessions online after the event. We assess your learning through a variety of methods including project work, essays and exams.
