Course content

Construction is a global industry, and construction managers are at the centre of it. Responsible for directing various operations within building projects, from project planning, contract administration and safety management, to cost and quality control, they represent a varied and exciting area of the industry. Our MSc Construction Management course aims to provide you with a framework for understanding the role of the construction manager, with a key focus on the management of construction projects from the perspective of the construction contractor.

Applying construction management principles and processes to project work, you’ll gain a critical understanding of management roles in industry processes. You’ll examine the technological processes and associated business functions in the UK and international environments and, through the application of research methods, advance your ability to identify innovation and continuous development in industry.
