Property and Construction, MSc by Research
This programme has been developed in response to a growing demand from construction and property-related organisations for high level in-work development of their staff, which centres on work-related issues and problems that lead to a recognised academic qualification.
Organisations require the development of knowledge and expertise that relates to the resolution of problems specific to the organisation and/or to the development of new expertise, systems or technology to support the organisation’s growth and development.
The programme allows employees of organisations to pursue a higher degree through research of an issue or problem that is relevant to their day-to-day work and which will directly benefit their own job and career, as well as their employer. The programme provides an opportunity for organisations who wish to support the development of their staff towards a recognised high level academic qualification whilst retaining their services and involvement in the organisation.
The situational research enables the organisation to integrate their staff development with their business objectives and to increase the intellectual capital available to the organisation through its employees. It also allows organisations to address development issues and problems that are current and important to them.
Benefits that accrue from the links between the organisation and the university could lead to longer research opportunities, such as the DTI Partners in Innovation programme.
Onward development with a wide range of firms engaged in the property and construction industries, or as the basis for further study for a PhD
