Comments about Construction Management and Construction Law PgDip-MSc - At the institution - Kingston Upon Thames - Greater London
The varying nature of construction, combined with the growing complexities of the industry, means that there is a demand for construction professionals who have the knowledge and skills to analyse the intricate problems that arise on most large projects. Many disputes occur in construction because the partners do not have a fundamental understanding of the branch of law involving construction that would serve to reduce and resolve disputes. This MSc course satisfies the requirements of the Engineering Council UK’s Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC – previously known as SARTOR3) as a ‘period of further learning’ for registration as a Chartered Engineer.
If you have a strong interest in the commercial aspects of the construction industry and would like the confidence to operate in the difficult environment of contractual arrangements, this part-time course is ideal.
