Course content

This course is designed to teach project management to people from any discipline. Unlike many other project management courses, you do not need an engineering or technical background to apply. A large number of our students are from business, arts and other backgrounds.

The course covers a comprehensive range of project management topics, utilising lectures, tutorials and practical sessions. You will also be given the chance to put your newly learnt skills into practice in an extended project management business game over a six-week period.

Various other modules ensure that you will develop a well-rounded set of project and general management skills including: International Project Management, Managing People and Project Leadership, Decision Support for Management and Project Risk and Quality Management. Speakers from outside the University also contribute to the course, providing real-world case studies.

When you have completed the course you will be ready and confident to take you place in the world of work and project management.
