What will I learn?

Why choose this course?

This is a full-time only version of the MSc Construction Project Management course that aims to provide an industrial placement opportunity during Semester 3 (May to October). This extends the minimum learning period to 15 months.

The MSc Construction Project Management course aims to meet the growing need within the built environment sector for professionals with a thorough understanding of the management of the construction process from inception to completion. The focus on following the process through inception, feasibility and planning of projects differentiates this course from operational construction management. As a student you will experience a combination of structured learning with problem-based scenarios and research that will develop your capabilities for critical thinking, argument, creativity and encourage your innovation all of which are brought into the practical decision making processes encountered in built environment projects.

This course will enable you to appraise, analyse and evaluate the art and science of construction project management covering the areas of strategy, control, technical, commercial, legal, financial and organisational issues. You will reflect on and make cases for the integration of the technical (hard) and social (soft) management styles required within the context of strategic and operational construction projects.
