Course content

One of the biggest challenges the construction industry faces is the skill shortage, in medium and senior levels of well-trained construction managers. Consequently, in the UK alone 1 in 3 (33%) of government-funded projects are delivered over budget, resulting in severe cost overruns. Globally, at least 4 in 5 (80%) of large and complex infrastructure projects take longer than planned and are extremely over budget by the time they are completed.

With this in mind, prepare to successfully fulfill a senior leadership and management planning role in construction with an MSc in Construction Management from Leeds Trinity University. You will be taught by research-active academics with extensive industry experience from the UK and around the globe.

This course is designed to give you the very core skills of understanding the causes of construction delays and what tools are needed to plan, execute, and deliver projects on time, to the specified scope and budget.

Construction Managers in medium to senior roles play a vital role in:
• avoiding the tribulations of late completion
• develop high analytical design skills
• interpret complex technical briefs
• lead others in teams and
• work efficiently as part of a team.

The course is also suitable for candidates wishing to pursue their new career opportunities in managing complex projects through comprehensive knowledge of the technology of construction and assembly methods. These are core strategic attributes of a highly competent and successful construction manager.
