Course content

Many engineering projects are now undertaken by multidisciplinary teams who are responsible for the whole project life cycle in a multi-project or programme management environment. Typically, these projects are becoming increasingly complex. As a result, team members are expected to have a range of project management skills, including procurement knowledge, financial engineering competency and strategic awareness.

This programme allows you to develop your knowledge of the entire project management process, from inception and feasibility, engineering, procurement and implementation through to commissioning and operation. Particular emphasis is placed on financial, planning and management aspects of the project life cycle, to equip you with the range of skills you’ll need to make a major contribution at every stage of a project.

Students wishing to acquire and further their knowledge regarding the management side of engineering projects will have an opportunity to do so on this course, which focuses on the project life-cycle. Should further technical engineering and management expertise be sought then this option is also available through the International Construction Management and Engineering MSc (Eng) which focuses on the whole-life cycle. Both of these programmes develop you as a professional communicator so you need to be prepared to spend time on improving your writing and presentation skills.
