Following a comprehensive accreditation process, Chartered Association of Building Engineers (CABE) is proud to confirmed that UCEM's BSc (Hons) Building Control programme and Building Control Surveyor Degree apprenticeship have gained accreditation from the Association.


Following a detailed submission, presentation and meeting UCEM received commendation for:


  • the clear layout of their student handbooks. 'They are very informative, easy to follow and clear induction units, highlighting excellent student support with links to online study resources'
  • an excellent selection of the university’s modules, assessment and use of project-based modules
  • a range of award outcomes that reflects student achievement
  • the impressive apprenticeship process, delivery, learner, and employer support mechanism; and
  • the quality and timely submission of the accreditation documentation was exemplary.


Helen Edwards, UCEM’s Director of Academic Quality commented: “Gaining accreditation from the sector’s top professional bodies is essential in confirming that our programmes suitably equip graduates to flourish in the Built Environment. I’m delighted that CABE were satisfied with our new Building Control programmes, and I look forward to seeing how graduates off the two programmes progress in their careers to ensure a safer Built Environment.”


All Building Control students can apply for free student membership of CABE which can be upgraded to Associate Membership after two years’ relevant experience in the workplace.


John Barfoot, CABE Learning, Education & Academic Director added: “We are delighted to accredit UCEM’s Building Control programmes. We are very much looking forward to continuing to grow our relationship over the coming years and welcoming UCEM students to membership.”
