Construction Management - BSc (Honours)(Level 8)
You will be able to manage the construction process and to meet the needs of clients within legal, financial and environmental constraints. Construction Managers require a combination of engineering knowledge, good business and organisation skills and a capacity for leadership in managing the building process. LIT graduates have an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the construction process and the necessary theoretical knowledge to match solutions to construction problems; the management skills to plan, organize and manage construction projects and the ability to contribute to the construction process in a manner that sustains and enhances the natural and the built environments.
This includes being responsible for coordinating a wide variety of skilled workers and specialists and leading them in the implementation of the plan, monitoring progress against the required objectives, and making adjustments to ensure that the goals originally set forth are achieved. Construction Management graduates are also involved in marshalling the resources required - labour, materials, equipment, time and money and translating the work of designers such as architects and engineers into reality.
