CORE UNITS

Design Principles and Application for Construction and the Built
EnvironmentThis unit provides learners with the opportunity to develop an understanding of the design process and how the planning and design phases are coordinated and managed.

Science and Materials for Construction and the Built EnvironmentThis unit provides learners with an understanding of the properties, structural behaviour and use of construction materials, and develops the skills needed to use scientific principles to solve construction problems.

Applied Mathematics for Construction and the Built EnvironmentThis unit provides learners with an opportunity to develop skills in using analytical methods and statistics to solve construction and engineering problems.

Group Project in the Construction IndustryThis unit provides learners with an opportunity to develop the skills needed to devise and implement a project scope and scheme of work, and evaluate and present the project.

Health, Safety and Welfare for Construction and the Built EnvironmentThis unit enables learners to develop an understanding of health, safety and welfare legislation and effective health and safety policies. Learners will develop the skills needed to undertake risk assessments.

Site Surveying Procedures for Construction and the Built EnvironmentThis unit develops an understanding of the principles of site surveying and cartographic detailing of construction works and the skills to use site surveying instruments, alongside an understanding of the software available.

Structural Analysis and DesignThis unit provides learners with an opportunity to develop skills to analyse and design statically determinate structures in compliance with current codes of practice and standards.

Civil Engineering TechnologyThis unit enables learners to develop an understanding of the methods and techniques used to create civil engineering structures and the skills needed to solve problems associated with civil engineering activities.

Engineering Geology and Soil MechanicsThis unit enables learners to develop an understanding of common rock types, their use in construction and develop the skills to classify and analyse the properties and characteristics of soils.

Management Principles and Application for Construction and the Built EnvironmentThis unit provides learners with an opportunity to understand management principles and their application to the construction and built environment sector.

SPECIALIST UNITS

Hydraulic Principles and ApplicationsThis unit provides learners with an opportunity to develop the skills required to solve hydrostatic and flow problems, select appropriate pumps and undertake experiments in hydraulics.

Measuring, Tendering and Estimating for Construction and the Built EnvironmentThis unit provides learners with an understanding of the tendering processes and procedures used in construction and the built environment. Learners will also gain skills to estimate for construction operations.

Applied Maths for Complex EngineeringThis unit provides learners with the opportunity to develop an understanding of trigonometric functions and the skills needed to apply advanced mathematical techniques to solve complex engineering problems.

Personal and Professional DevelopmentThis unit aims to help the learner become an effective and confident self-directed employee. This helps the learner become confident in managing own personal and professional skills to achieve personal and career goals.

Project Management for Construction and the Built EnvironmentThis unit provides learners with the opportunity to develop an understanding of the principles and application of project management in the construction and built environment sector.

Research ProjectThis unit aims to develop learners’ skills of independent enquiry and critical analysis by undertaking a sustained research investigation of direct relevance to their Higher Education programme and professional development.
