Comments about MSc Computer Aided Design and Construction - At the institution - Wolverhampton - West Midlands

  • Objectives
    - The need for specialist IT skills within the construction team has long been recognised, and CAD designers play a leading role in the overall process of building design, focusing on those areas where their creative, technical and managerial abilities can be utilised - We pride ourselves on a very high employability rate for our postgraduate students - potential employment opportunities for graduates include: architectural and interior design practices; civil engineering practices; local authorities; environmental management agencies; space-planning and office furniture companies; and design consultancies
  • Entry requirements
    - Normally, you should have a good Honours degree or equivalent – substantial professional experience can substitute for graduate status - We look for graduates with an appropriate Honours degree in construction or IT/design subjects, although graduates from other disciplines may still be eligible for entry
