What will I learn?

What is the Course about?

Construction Management is the planning, coordination and control of a construction project from concept to completion, ensuring the project is delivered on time and on budget while adhering to the necessary environmental and health and safety standards.

It is an exciting time to study construction in Ireland as the National Development Plan and the National Planning Framework are set to reshape Ireland over the next two decades.

There are currently more jobs in the construction industry than there are graduates. This means that students from our courses regularly benefit from better job prospects, more opportunities to advance in their careers and better starting salaries. Students will develop the necessary skills in management to deliver projects safely, on time, on budget and to the highest quality.

Course Structure

The complexity of construction projects requires professionals who have expertise in construction
management and can work effectively with people from different cultural backgrounds and construction disciplines.

Students will learn to develop their intellectual and practical competence through creative problem solving in an open and inclusive learning environment.

Students will complete a 30-credit work placement during Semester 6 in Year 3. This will provide students with an insight into the Construction Management working world that they will be entering. It will also provide an opportunity to put all of their learning to date into practice.
