|Institution||University of Cambridge View institution profile|
|Department||Institute of Continuing Education|
This course is aimed at practising professionals with at least three years' work experience in the built environment. It is open to architects, engineers, and all those involved in commissioning, design, construction and management. It is offered by the Cambridge Institute of Continuing Education in association with the Departments of Architecture and Engineering.
The course aims to equip professionals for strategic decision making, inventive problem solving and team leadership; to develop skills in effective collaboration and communication, particularly between clients, consultants, contractors, specialists and occupiers; and to provide a strategic overview of the production of the built environment including current challenges faced by the construction industry such as technological innovation, global climate change, resilience and sustainability. The course is part-time and lasts for two years. During that time, students spend six separate residential weeks studying in Cambridge at three- or four-month intervals as well as taking part in an online module. Each of these residential weeks comprises an intensive programme of formal lectures (from leading practitioners and university academics), workshops and seminars, and a design project in small interdisciplinary teams.
