In the first years, primarily common to other building disciplines, you will be introduced to the fundamental topics of building design and the construction process, which are essential to practitioners in all construction professions, such as what constitutes good building design and what causes damage to buildings.
In the next years, you will be introduced to more complex issues surrounding the profession such as adaptation of buildings and urban planning which aims to further explore your design and construction knowledge from the previous year.
In your final year, you should deepen your knowledge of the role of professional practitioners in the construction industry, as an independent practitioner or as an employee in a design office. You will cover professionalism and codes of behaviour, as well as skills relating to setting up in private practice, commercial development and management of a professional practice in the built environment sector.
The course culminates in a research-informed design project and an integrated design and construction planning project in collaboration with other students from our construction courses.
Recent graduates have found employment with all levels of companies at national level, such as HOK and local companies such as IDP Partnership and Corstorphine and Wright, with many graduates finding positions all over the world.
