3 good reasons to study Construction Management at Salford:

* RICS and CIOB accredited
* Mapped to the Construction Management NVQ level 5 to allow attainment of the CSCS black card
* 100% employability for recent graduates

This course is intended primarily for those of you wishing to develop your careers in the United Kingdom. The course is mapped to the underpinning knowledge of Construction Management NVQ level 5 and is designed to support the attainment of the black/professional CSCS card; the industry standard for all Construction Managers in the UK.

You will learn to better organise and plan complex construction projects, to diagnose corporate problems and to effectively manage teams, procurement, finance and risk.

Career Prospects
Many graduates use this course to gain the skills and knowledge required to advance their careers and undertake senior management role. Past graduates have followed careers in the construction industry in project management, construction management, architectural and engineering design management. However, a significant number have also branched out into parallel careers in the civil engineering, financial, legal and business sectors. Our graduates work across the globe for many of the world's leading built environment organisations. Many graduates have gone on to achieve notable success, with numerous winners of the Whiting Award and also several awards in the CIOB Building Manager of the Year competition.

More and more in today's corporate environment, successful organisations are viewing real estate and facilities management as an integral part of their strategic business plan. Real estate facilities management is a vital strategic discipline because it "translates" the high-level, strategic change required by senior decision-makers into day-to-day reality for people in their work or living space.
