Construction Project Management

This course meets 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. Students experience a combination of structured learning with problem-based scenarios and research that will develop their capabilities for critical thinking, argument, creativity and encourage innovation all of which are brought into the practical decision making processes encountered in built environment projects.

Entry requirements

In most cases a 2nd Class Honours degree in a construction related discipline, or equivalent, is required for direct entry onto the Master's programme. Students are selected using application form and references in the 1st instance. However, if the applicant has a compatible non-cognate degree and/or relevant industrial experience they may be interviewed and if successful offered a place on the postgraduate certificate version of the course with the potential to extend this to a full Master's degree or a Postgraduate Certificate in a construction related discipline, or a related subject with a minimum of grade C in all modules.

Course modules

Indicative modules studied include: Strategic construction project and programme management; operational construction project management; advanced project planning and control; construction project procurement and contracts; contemporary issues in construction; work-based learning.
