Construction managers are based both on site and in the office and are expected to work with a wide range of people, from architects to construction workers.
This programme covers a wide variety of technical, financial and planning aspects in theory and practice, using both traditional and online teaching methods. Most construction management graduates in Scotland have trained at Glasgow Caledonian University.
Industry experts give guest lectures and in Year 3 there are opportunities to spend six months on a work placement with a construction organisation. There are also opportunities to study abroad, in Europe, Australia and the USA, and there are scholarships for study and internship tours in the Middle East.
The programme is fully accredited by the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).
Graduates have gone on to work for major companies such as Lend Lease, BAM Construction, Clark Contracts, McLaughlin and Harvey, Sir Robert McAlpine, Balfour Beatty, Laing OâRourke, Barr Construction, Persimmon Homes and Ogilvie Construction.

Glasgow was incredible, I was genuinely surprised when I arrived here. Don’t believe the hype, Glasgow is a bustling metropolis with loads of amazing bars, coffee shops and markets (The Barras is a godsend for decorating your flat) to whittle down your student loan. Caledonian is also a lovely university – I was seriously impressed by their support services, they were very accommodating and helped me out with bursaries and applying for various schemes. They were really dedicated to making sure I was able to achieve my degree with the minimum of financial and health stresses, and I’m very grateful!
