Directors of local and national construction companies, as well as representatives from government bodies, contribute to the course with guest lectures, site visits and live case studies. This provides a real-life learning environment and unique research opportunities. We also have visits from local area planning officers, construction directors and government agencies.
Through our network of employers you will be supported and encouraged to do a work placement. Organisations that we have close links with include Southampton City Council, Capita Symonds, Evolution 5, Balfour Beatty, Barrett Homes, Linden Homes, Perbury Group, Brymor Contractors, Drew Smith Construction and Babcock International.
We also hold close links with the Chartered Institute of Building and their network for young professionals, Novus. This network encourages undergraduates (still studying) and young professionals to network and get more involved with the industry.
We are proud to say that the first Novus group was set up by a graduate from our BSc (Hons) Construction Management programme. This group runs regular events throughout the year.
