Course content

Lincoln's MSc Construction Science and Management responds to the global challenges that built environments face: changes in climate, technology, urbanisation, population dynamics, and governance. These challenges require innovative leadership from built environment professionals in order to adapt appropriately.

This Chartered Institute of Building accredited programme is designed to further develop students' knowledge and understanding of the science of buildings, and the management of the construction process in order to fulfil their professional duties in creating, improving, and sustaining the built environment. It provides a holistic perspective of construction management processes and the global challenges facing the modern construction industry.

Recent graduates from construction and other related disciplines may find this programme beneficial to develop their technical knowledge and the management skills required for a fast track career in the construction industry. It is also suited to experienced construction professionals who aspire to senior management positions in the UK and overseas. It can also open up opportunities to progress to MPhil/PhD research studies in the fields of construction science, construction technology, and construction management.

The programme is designed around the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) Education Framework, and the curriculum has been developed in collaboration with industry partners. The programme content is informed by state-of-the-art research carried out by academics across the School of Architecture and the Built Environment. This includes research on latest trends in lean and sustainable construction. The programme is offered as a one-year full-time modular course or two-year flexible modular course.
