In 2018, leading construction and infrastructure company, Morgan Sindall and Salford formed a collaborative partnership to help students get ‘work ready’. Focused on enhancing the employability credentials of undergraduates, the partnership builds on the University’s proud legacy to combine leading academic insight with real-world experiences.
If you are studying on our Construction Project Management or Civil Engineering courses, you will also have the opportunity to take part in Constructionarium, a week-long field course in Norfolk. Constructionarium puts your learnt theory into practice, so you experience how things work in the real world. Working in project teams, you’ll get to construct, scaled down versions of iconic bridges, buildings and dams from around the world, working in a controlled environment and supported by both academic and industrial staff .
By the end of the course, you’ll have gained invaluable experience of life on a construction site, and will have dealt with a number of challenges that you’ll face in your future career. You’ll also have the opportunity to make new friends, and forge connections with industry experts.
