Career Prospects

The BSc (Hons) Construction Management degree provides a qualification that is recognised as a comprehensive, informed and valuable measure of the ability of the Wrexham Glyndwr University graduate in the management of construction.

Opportunities for construction managers exist within the construction industry in many varied contexts, from ‘new-build’ developments to heritage and refurbishment projects of all scales and types – developing a career as a construction manager can therefore lead to many rewarding experiences, not least due to the fact that no two construction projects are the same, and that construction managers are likely to spend as much time on site as they are at their desks. These circumstances mean that a career in construction management can often be challenging, particularly rewarding, but never routine.

Course Details


Level 4 of the construction management degree comprises six core modules that combine to provide an introduction to the processes and technologies that exist within the contemporary construction industry. Subjects are considered from first principles, so that you can come to appreciate fundamental issues in the design, construction, management, use and decommissioning of construction projects.


Level 5 of the degree builds upon the first by introducing further modules that explore important considerations in the development of construction projects. Planning and Building Regulations explores the two principal ‘permissions’ necessary when development is proposed, and Digital Technologies in Surveying considers the use of digital equipment in topographical measurement. Year 2 also includes a compulsory week-long work placement.


The final year requires the development of a group project in Inter-professional Studies and provides an opportunity to explore a particular research interest in the Individual Research Project. All seventeen modules combine to engage you in your chosen field of study and are intended to encourage confidence and enthusiasm in the development of your expertise.
