OVERVIEW

The construction industry has undergone a digital revolution with the development of Building Information Management in the life cycle of the building and construction process. Construction professionals can no longer simply rely on their technical knowledge and skills to function effectively in the industry; they also need a significant range of digital skills. This Foundation Degree is designed to bridge this skills deficit, providing a qualification that covers the traditional knowledge and skills required but enhanced with the digital skills needed to function effectively within the industry.
