Course content

This accredited Project Management for Construction MSc focuses on the specialist project management skills needed to gain an in-depth understanding of the specific issues and complexities that are part of managing construction projects. It develops the skills needed to find solutions while also meeting the clients’ requirements in the most efficient way.

Exploring the unique needs and characteristics of all stages of the project’s life-cycle, students learn to balance efficiency on time, cost and performance and constructability, as well as the environmental impact.

Students examine construction methodologies and procedures and gain an understanding of procurement systems, client organisations and stakeholder management in the development and decision-making processes.

Project management is all about team work, so students work in a team to produce a complex project proposal based on a real-world scenario. This allows them to apply the skills and knowledge that they’ve gained to coordinate a multidisciplinary team of professionals to successfully deliver a construction project.


This course is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), the Chartered Association of Building Engineers (CABE), and by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).
