Qualification Summary

The range of units chosen for this Diploma will give a good overall view of the relationship between construction and the built environment, focusing on the use of
technology within the industry and leadership and management skills.

Students will be able to see the links between the two areas and understand how they work together
and how reliant they are on each other. The units will allow students to consider their options for further study and then progress onto construction, built environment or
quantity or building surveying undergraduate degrees whilst having given them a flavour of how these elements work together.

The ungraded units have been selected to
provide underpinning skills which will support academic study, but will also provide students with relevant skills to continue onto study in a range of construction degrees.
