Course content

In today's ever-changing market, construction professionals need the knowledge and skills available through postgraduate study more than ever. Successful project managers need to be able to think, lead and act in an uncertain and dynamic business environment, have access to the latest information, understand the appropriate techniques and systems, and have the expertise to apply these to market needs and business opportunities.

The MSc Construction Project Management is designed specifically to enhance your understanding of managing projects, and to support construction professionals in practice and client organisations. It is aimed at architects, surveyors, services engineers, civil engineers, construction managers, and existing project managers who wish to formalise their training on the client and supply side.

Industry-informed content

The MSc Construction Project Management course's strengths lie in teaching and learning that meets the practising professional's needs, and with such a diverse range of applicants, it is ideal for peer learning. Module content reflects the current diversity and ongoing change in the construction industry in particular, building information modelling (BIM) as well as sustainability and health and safety. To help you gain the most benefit from the course, we also offer advanced study skills.

You'll also enjoy plenty of opportunities to network with people working at the leading edge of research and practice whose insights feed directly into the course modules and help us shape research opportunities for your dissertation. Our staff include active researchers and consultants, through the Department's Construction and Property Research Centre (CPRC).

We enjoy excellent links with, and support from, a group of employers who contribute towards teaching resources and offer sponsorship and placements to students. These employers see graduates of this programme as highly employable within their own businesses and organisations.

International students

If you're one of our many international students, you'll have opportunities to incorporate material and examples from your home country into your studies, especially in the dissertation. We also visit construction project sites in the UK, so you can compare practices here with those in your home country. This enriches your overall learning, and ours.
