University of Salford

Information technology for the construction industry


The University has made an outstanding contribution to the advancement of the practice of information technology (IT) in the construction industry in this country. It has created an impressive international network and continues to develop the use of IT and other technology to improve efficiencies in a crucial industrial field. Recognising the construction industry’s relatively slow adjustment to change and to advances in IT, the University of Salford has sought to change this by establishing a centre of excellence for teaching and research in construction IT: Construct IT.
