MSc Construction Project Management

General

Programme Description

Construction Project Management requires highly skilled individuals with the ability to lead and integrate a multi-disciplinary team of professionals. This challenging, industry-focused course will help you to develop not only the academic and technical knowledge required for this role but also the interpersonal skills that are essential for success in this career.

The course will build on the knowledge and experience you gained in your first degree, or in your work environment, and prepare you to take strategic responsibility for the management of construction projects. We will equip you with a strong understanding of the academic knowledge, theories, concepts and principles required, as well as the intellectual, practical and technical skills vital in this career.

The course is built around the Chartered Institute of Building’s definition of construction project management which encompasses the whole life cycle of a construction project from ‘inception to recycling’. Sustainability is a key element of this and an important focus of this course.
