Course content

​Technological innovations are typically managed through the medium of a project. This programme enables a student to explore issues from conception of a technology via its implementation to eventual adoption. The course considers the state of the art in technology delivery and covers a range of contemporary technology project management themes.​

The programme has nine core modules:

Four foundational 10 credit modules:

  • Technology Adoption
  • Technology Project Management
  • Technology Legal Issues
  • Team Software Development Project


Four specialist 20 credit modules:

  • Business Analysis
  • End User Computing Risk Management
  • Project Management Theory and Practice
  • Project Management Case Studies


In addition, one 20 credit module, 'Research Methods for Technology Projects', is undertaken in preparation for the self-managed element.

120 credits from these may result in the award of PgD; 60 credits from these may result in the award of PgC. The MSc requires all nine modules and completion of a 40 credit project.

Modules are delivered through lectures, tutorials, practical workshops and invited speakers.
