Construction & Built Environments

The School of Construction & Built Environments at the BACU offers innovative specialty programs in the significant areas of Civil Engineering, Interior Architecture & Design, and Contruction Management. We have built on our faculty member’s long experience to provide up to date applied education with different delivery models that is of national importance. We provide students a rich immersion in academic study, personal growth, skills expertise and work flexibility. We train students to become the next civil engineers, architects and construtcion managers who can adapt to constantly changing demands and scenarios.

We currently offer two major types of degrees: a 2 year higher diploma degree, HND (with UK Pearson BTEC) and a 4-year Bachelors Program, BEng (Hons) or BA (Hons) (Level 6-Top-Up with Teeside University, UK).
