Course content

The postgraduate programme in Architectural Project Management is delivered jointly by the Centre of Excellence in Sustainable Building Design at Heriot-Watt University and the University of Edinburgh. It draws from the expertise in Design, Architecture and Construction Project Management from both institutions to create a programme with a unique overview and insight into the design, management and operation of construction.

The concepts, practices and strategic issues related to construction project management are examined so as to provide an understanding of how project management professionals can add value and provide a service to their clients. The courses will develop understanding of issues related to management of clients and other stakeholders involved in the delivery of a project within the overarching constraints of time, quality, costs, sustainability and safety management. The suite of courses provides the student with the necessary knowledge to contribute effectively as a lead consultant delivering project management services to clients.

Delivered only by Independent Distance Learning (IDL) this programme is ideal for those in employment or with other commitments, providing flexible study options that fit around work or family. Students receive comprehensive materials for each course through an online Virtual Learning Environment.
