Our academic staff are experts in their fields.

They combine teaching and research skills with their professional practice and knowledge of the design, construction and property industries, giving you the perfect formula for a rewarding learning experience.

Continuing professional development (CPD)

Our postgraduate programme allows you to study an individual module as a stand-alone course.

This gives you the opportunity to study flexibly (a half day per week or at the weekend) and choose subjects that suit your specific needs.

Information on courses, dates and fees for 2019/20 can be found below:

A CPD certificate will be issued upon successful completion of a course.

Passing the optional assessment can also contribute credit towards a postgraduate award in the future.

You must have the relevant work experience to attend and, if attending for credit, you must hold a related undergraduate qualification.

Bespoke training

We can arrange tailored programmes that run for a single day or longer, either at NTU or in-house at your premises.

Previous bespoke training has included:

Estates Management Team (Nottinghamshire) – BIM and Autodesk Revit

A university required an understanding of the key principles of building information modelling and the impact it could have on their work in the future.

Ten delegates attended a three-day course which involved Revit software and modelling, led by a BIM expert who runs his own consultancy business.

Lucerne University (Switzerland) – Design Thinking

The MBA faculty and students were looking for something creative that involved design thinking, problem-solving and product-making.

Distinct from their usual day-to-day work, the delegates spent a week immersed in smart textiles and created business proposals for the next generation of wearable technology.

St Benedict's School (Derbyshire) – Software Training

Design and technology teachers were introduced to the key features of SolidWorks, giving them the principles of modelling and 3D design.

The practical and interactive course allowed delegates to bring examples of their own projects so that they could develop work to take back to the classroom.
