  • Course description
    Construction Project Management MSc.

    This innovative postgraduate construction course is aimed at graduates who are already in, or have been in, construction-related employment, and who aspire to senior positions in the fields of project management. This course aims to develop your awareness of the importance of construction projects to clients, and the context and constraints within which projects are procured and undertaken.

    You will gain greater knowledge and understanding of the theories, concepts, principles, techniques, and intellectual and practical skills needed for the project management of construction projects. You will have the opportunity to plan and implement a personal research project related to project management. The course utilises web -based technologies in its delivery and extensive use is made of enquiry-based learning to enhance lifelong learning skills.

    The blended learning approach offers flexible access to the core content, while still providing the discipline and structure of regular attendance at the University. The design of the part-time course recognises the significant challenges of combining postgraduate-level study with full-time professional employment.
