In just a brief duration of time - in a few minutes or even in a fraction of a second - a fire or an explosion can have catastrophic consequences in residential buildings or in industrial plant. In UK alone, hundreds get killed and tens of thousands are injured every year. Some single incidents cost millions of pounds, the total monetary cost of fire and explosions in the UK is estimated at £12 billion per year or approximately 1% of GDP.

This course offers students from diverse academic backgrounds advanced training in the field of Fire and Explosion Engineering for those wishing to embark on a career, or further develop their career, in the industry. Particular emphasis is placed on fire and explosion protection systems within a legislative framework that is complex and fast-changing.Core modules will cover both foundation and advanced aspects of fire and explosion engineering, from the factors that influence flame spread to the latest research in explosion prediction. You’ll also gain a firm grounding in fire safety design and have the chance to design a fire protection system for a complex building.

Why study MSc Building Information Modelling Management at Middlesex?

The construction sector is a major part of the UK economy. It represents some 7% of GDP or £11bn per annum of expenditure - 40% of this being in the public sector, with central Government the industry's biggest consumer. Now any centrally procured project will require Building Information Modelling (BIM) compliance.

BIM is a process involving the structured sharing and coordination of digital and non-digital information about a building project throughout its entire lifecycle, from design through procurement and construction and beyond, into the operation and management stage, all the way through to demolishment. It involves the efficient coordination of processes, workflows, people, documentation, graphic/non-graphic assets and technology.

As a direct response to this industry need, we have developed this course which aims to produce practitioners with a qualification to be BIM enabled in their discipline with a critical awareness of contemporary BIM issues informed by technology, research and management skills in standard and unpredictable scenarios.
Importantly, the course provides practitioners in the property and construction sector, and related stakeholders providing services for it, with a qualification to be employed in a Management role in BIM projects. These include technical BIM management positions, operational/administrative BIM management positions, and strategic BIM management positions.

Course Highlights

-The UK’s only work based MSc in Building Information Modelling Management
- Distance learning so there is no need to take time off work
- Work-applied practical projects
- Supported peer engagement and sharing of best practice including an on-campus summer school
- Online meetings and lectures from industry leaders
- Business simulations
- A study programme aligned to CPD and professional bodies’ frameworks
- Accreditation for prior learning (APL), allowing you to gain credit for prior study/work experience
- Opportunities to influence the future of BIM with your thesis

Flexible study through distance learning

Many students choosing to study MSc Building Information Modelling Management will be practitioners in full-time employment. With this in mind, we have designed the course to be flexible around participants’ work and life commitments. You will be able to complete the course part-time through Distance Learning over two years. However, it would be also possible to shorten this to 12 months in fulltime mode depending on how much time you can commit to the course.

Accreditation of prior learning (APL)

APL is available as part of this course, allowing you to gain credit for prior study or work experience and therefore shorten your overall study hours.

Who should do this course?

The course is specifically aimed at experienced professionals who will be expected to manage BIM projects. These will include people from the following sectors: architects, architectural technologists, construction and civil engineers, mechanical, electrical and plumbing services (MEP) engineers, heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) engineers, technicians, contractors, subcontractors, fabricators and manufacturers, project managers, facilities and operations managers (FM & OM), quantity surveyors, cost and legal consultants.

To reduce greenhouse gas emissions and aid sustainable development, there is an urgent need to support our electricity generating capacity through the development of low carbon technologies, particularly those generated from renewable sources. The ocean represents a vast and largely untapped energy resource, that could be exploited as a form of low carbon electricity generation, and there is much European and global commercial and R&D activity in this energy sector. The UK is the world leader in the development of wave and tidal stream technologies, and if marine energy deploys globally, the UK is uniquely positioned to capture a substantial market share, with the potential to contribute as much as £4.3 bn to UK GDP up to 2050. The aim of this MSc programme is to equip students with the skills necessary to identify and quantify the potential of specific locations for marine renewable energy generation installations, with an emphasis on the resource (waves and tides), time series analysis, numerical modelling, and the challenges faced when placing arrays of devices in the marine environment.

This 12 month taught postgraduate course introduces students with a first degree in the physical, mathematical or other numerate sciences to the subject of Marine Renewable Energy. As well as providing an overview of marine renewable energy, the course enables students to research in detail those aspects of the subject in which they are particularly interested. The course places particular emphasis on assessing the wave & tidal energy resource, and geophysical nature of sites, providing students with the necessary skills for marine renewable energy resource and site characterisation from a theoretical, technical, and practical perspective.

Course Structure and Modules
The first two semesters of the course are taught, introducing the student to the physics of the ocean, and the ways in which we can make use of the ocean to generate electricity, whilst minimising environmental impacts. Modules cover both oceanographic theory and its application, as well as practical oceanography. The latter includes an introduction to state-of-the-art instrumentation and numerical modelling, as well as practical experience working on the University's state-of-the-art research vessel, the 35 metre RV Prince Madog. The course also includes a module on geophysical surveying, teaching the techniques used to survey sites suitable for deploying wave and tidal energy arrays. Student achievement in the course is evaluated by a combination of continuous assessment and module examinations.

During the second semester, the students begin to focus on specific aspects of the subject, initially through a dedicated module on marine renewable energy, and subsequently through an extensive literature review followed by a research project. The research project, which forms a major component of the course, is selected in close consultation with the students such that it is of direct relevance to their intended future work. The School of Ocean Sciences has extensive links with the marine renewable energy sector, and many of the projects will be in collaboration with industry. For overseas students, well founded projects based on investigations being undertaken in a home institute are encouraged.
