Project Management is used in the co-ordination and administration of construction projects. The course provides students with the concepts, principles and practical knowledge needed to deal with the planning, co-ordination and control of projects from inception through to post completion, in order to meet the client's aims and objectives and thus complete the project on time, within budget and to the required quality standards.
This programme of study will appeal to students with varied technical and professional backgrounds and encourages students to develop their powers of rigorous analysis, critical enquiry and independent judgement in regard to all areas of project management.
