Local Business Supports New Construction Course


construction drawingTresham University Centre is pleased to be able to offer a brand new degree level course in Construction Engineering, starting this September. The HNC/HND has been developed with input from construction industry experts, with the aim of filling a local need to provide a highly skilled workforce in the sector.

MPB Structures Ltd, one of the UK’s leading premier concrete frame specialists, is one of the first businesses to support the course by encouraging employee Ben Williams to enrol. Stuart Eyles, Quantity Surveyor/Estimator at the Corby office of MPB Structures Ltd said:

“We have decided to support Ben to study towards the HNC in Construction Engineering because there is a large gap in the age groups of trained professionals in the industry, so we must encourage the younger generations to take a step into the sector. Ben has been keen to learn and develop his skills in construction, so it’s in our favour to invest in him so he can bring more to the company.”

The course covers a combination of construction and civil engineering topics, including architecture, quantity surveying and building services engineering. To reduce the time spent attending classroom-based sessions, the course makes good use of online learning resources; an attractive advantage for those needing to balance work commitments with higher level study.

Ben is employed as an Assistant Quantity Surveyor / Document Controller, he said:

“I wish to develop my understanding of construction and the built environment. This course will help me to progress further in my current role and allow me to take more responsibilities. By understanding construction processes, methods and law I will be able to liaise on a more professional level with other Quantity Surveyors.”
