Construction Project Management with BIM

**Are you interested in gaining a Masters qualification that develops your professionalism in managing construction projects? With this course you'll gain transferable skills in project management and specialist knowledge about construction projects.** The course covers how to plan construction projects, how to manage supply chains, how to keep people working together, and how to use Building Information Modelling (BIM) for a more efficient construction process. Strong demand for construction project managers means there will be significant opportunities for you to take up a well-paid, challenging and international career. The course is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), which gives it additional credibility in the eyes of potential employers. The course is also available via distance learning mode, January start, or with the option of an advanced practice element. The course is particularly aimed at people with at least some background in construction or across the wider architectural, engineering and construction (AEC) industry. If you have background from a different sector you may wish to consider our MSc Project Management. Graduates of this qualification will have full CIOB academic exemption and once they have gained three to five years' relevant work experience may enter CIOB membership as an applicant to progress towards Chartered Membership without the requirement for an Individual Assessment.
