The Constructionarium is a hands-on construction experience for students and young professionals. It is where students following civil engineering,built environment or construction management courses learn practically to establish working links with industry - their future employers.
The basic model consists of a Triangle formed by a university, contractor and consultant working in partnership to deliver a new learning experience which combines the academic perspective with those of the design professional and practical site delivery.
Constructionarium is held as a 6 day working field course. The participants construct scaled down versions of bridges, buildings, dams and civil engineering projects. Students are assessed on the final day in terms of budgetary control, methodology and timely completion.
