Best MScs in Construction in United Kingdom 2019. Not just a desk job Buildings are an integral part of all of our lives; our homes, schools, workplaces and public places wouldn't exist without building surveyors. This course will teach the underpinnings of building construction, as well as how to maintain and use them sustainably. Being a building surveyor is very varied work; much of the job is undertaken on-site visits (it's not just a desk job) and no two days will be the same. The programme is for those involved in the maintenance, refurbishment, alteration and extension of existing buildings, or in project management and design for public bodies, commercial organisations and professional practice firms. Students coming to us from a non-construction/surveying background will be taught alongside those who have completed an undergraduate surveying degree and who are already working in the industry. As a result, the student cohort is diverse and contains a wide range of viewpoints. We've had students with backgrounds as diverse as drama, law and science. Why study at Building Surveying LSBU?

Why study MSc Building Information Modelling Management at Middlesex? The construction sector is a major part of the UK economy. It represents some 7% of GDP or £11bn per annum of expenditure - 40% of this being in the public sector, with central Government the industry's biggest consumer. Now any centrally procured project will require Building Information Modelling (BIM) compliance. BIM is a process involving the structured sharing and coordination of digital and non-digital information about a building project throughout its entire lifecycle, from design through procurement and construction and beyond, into the operation and management stage, all the way through to demolishment. It involves the efficient coordination of processes, workflows, people, documentation, graphic/non-graphic assets and technology. As a direct response to this industry need, we have developed this course which aims to produce practitioners with a qualification to be BIM enabled in their discipline with a critical awareness of contemporary BIM issues informed by technology, research, and management skills in standard and unpredictable scenarios. Importantly, the course provides practitioners in the property and construction sector, and related stakeholders providing services for it, with a qualification to be employed in a Management role in BIM projects. These include technical BIM management positions, operational/administrative BIM management positions, and strategic BIM management positions. Course Highlights - The UK's only work based MSc in Building Information Modelling Management - Distance learning so there is no need to take time off work - Work-applied practical projects - Supported peer engagement and sharing of best...
