If you are looking for a professional job in constructing the built environment then this is the course for you. The BTEC Level 3 in Advanced Construction programme is designed to give you a wide ranging knowledge applicable throughout the construction and civil engineering industry. On completion of this programme you will have access to a variety of professional jobs and/or Higher Education opportunities, for example:
- Structural Engineering
- Civil Engineering
- Quantity Surveying
- Building Services Engineering
- Project Management
- Building Information Modelling
Although you can achieve a BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma after 2 years, equivalent to 3 A Levels, you have the option to exit the programme after year 1 with a BTEC qualification equivalent to 3 AS Levels. Upon successful completion of the second year you can progress onto a range of higher educational courses, employment, or both.

The programme is both theoretical and work-related, letting you develop in-depth knowledge with professional applications. You will learn by completing projects and assignments that are based on realistic workplace situations. For example you will take part in activities such as the thermal mapping of a building using state of the art technology (Thermal Imaging Camera). You will also take part in Building Design using various 3D modelling CAD platforms.
