Course content

Focusing on both technical excellence and management ability in equal measure, our Project Management course has been designed in response to the worldwide shortage of engineers with the all-round capability needed to oversee complex projects. It’s a dynamic and demanding subject, combining in-depth technical knowledge with a multitude of personal attributes and business expertise. This course is almost identical to its sister course, Engineering Management.

Why study MSc Project Management at Middlesex

We are the only institution in London to offer a course in engineering project management. Our excellent links with industry, which we have built up over more than 20 years, have allowed us to develop a course which is highly relevant to the world of work and up-to-date with the latest research and practice. Our course offers an unusual amount of hands-on experience, with practical work incorporated into every module. You’ll work alongside professionals on industry-sponsored projects, go on site visits and attend lectures by guest speakers. Instead of a thesis you’ll work on a team project designed to resemble a real-life industry scenario.

Our studios, laboratories and workshops are exceptionally well-equipped with specialist software. All our technology and equipment is industry standard - a rarity in a university. You’ll also have the opportunity to work towards a Prince2certification as part of your studies.
