Course content

Asset management is the means of ensuring that people, systems, processes and resources which deliver a construction project, are in place, in use and fit for purpose over the project's lifecycle. Application of asset management practice helps to ensure that a project not only delivers working assets when you hand the project over to operations, but delivers sustainable, longer term benefits and manages asset risks throughout their life. This specialist course will enable graduates to competently manage and co-ordinate physical assets to optimum effect using the most advanced available digital technologies with the University's commitment towards Vision 2028.

Combining theory with best practice, this course is designed for management professionals and engineers, seeking or already working in an operations environment.

The course will deliver specialised professional development, designed to meet the real-world needs of industry. It will educate its stakeholders in strategic asset management including the skills needed to pro-actively manage real estate, commercial and industrial assets, with a strong emphasis on performance metrics, risk management and sustainability.

With so much expansion taking place in the East London and South East region, the implementation of asset management practices within an organisation will bring tangible benefits such as lower operating costs, longer asset life, improved asset performance, greater reliability, higher safety standards, enhanced environmental support and better informed investment strategies.

This MSc (including the industrial placement option) draws on digital advances such as building information modelling, smart cities, big data and internet of things, to help close that gap through the management of assets to shape a better world.
