About the course

The complex challenges faced in modern engineering have created a growing need for highly motivated graduates who understand project infrastructure planning, construction, management and maintenance issues.

This MSc course equips you with the knowledge, creativity and transferable skills required by project managers in the industry – developing your independent learning abilities and providing a foundation for your ongoing professional development.

You will learn current theories and practices for managing contemporary engineering projects from inception to completion – and for maintaining the resulting infrastructure throughout its lifetime.

Aims

Engineering is at the core of a successful economy and the infrastructure it develops directly affects the wellbeing of its citizens and the environment. Skilled, qualified project managers have a key role in this vital work.

There are two main challenges facing the engineering and construction industry:

1. Clients are increasingly requiring contractors to deliver projects using limited resources, at low cost, in short duration and to a high level of quality and safety
2. Much existing infrastructure is under severe strain due to a legacy of inadequate maintenance and rapid population growth.

The course examines these commercial pressures and will provide opportunities for students to develop and demonstrate knowledge and understanding of:

- The principles of strategic planning and risk analysis in successful project and infrastructure management
- The theoretical basis for the organisation of project infrastructure development and how management of budgets, human resources and supply chains can affect overall project success
- The interplay between engineering project, infrastructure management and sustainability in the complex real-world situations.

The programme develops students' technical knowledge and transferable skills sought by employers, equipping them with the compulsory attributes to flourish in senior roles within the engineering and construction sector.

Course Content

The taught element of the course includes eight modules which approximates to 150 learning hours. For full-time mode of study, the programme is taken over 12 months. The eight modules will be taught over the first eight months (from October to May) and during the final four months (June to September), students will undertake a project dissertation.

The individual project gives you the opportunity to undertake original research in the field of engineering project and infrastructure management. The preparatory work for the project is undertaken together with the taught modules over the first two semesters, under a research methods module, whilst the summer period is being devoted to the actual project dissertation.

Typical Modules:

Sustainable Project Management
Quality Management and Reliability
Financial Management Risk and Financial Management
Managing People and Organisation
Infrastructure Management
Procurement and Contract Management
Geo-Environmental Management for Civil Engineers
Research Methods and Professional Development
Project Dissertation

Teaching

Formal lectures are used to deliver course materials and are supported by structured seminars and problem solving sessions to develop your knowledge and cognitive skills. The lectures give a broad overview of the main concepts and principles you need to understand, providing you with a framework on which to build and expand your knowledge on through private studies.

The application of theory and strengthening of knowledge of taught material is achieved through computing sessions, field trips and group projects. The latter is aimed particularly at enhancing your teamwork skills.

Our well resourced computing laboratories allow you to develop your knowledge and experience of appropriate planning and management software packages - and to apply this to project and infrastructure management problems. You also have access to computers outside scheduled laboratory sessions to allow you to learn at your own pace and time.

Learning from real-world examples forms a significant part of the course. You will visit project sites to understand the challenges and solutions of modern engineering projects.

Our staff are active in research and maintain close contact with industry to ensure that course materials are up-to date with commercial needs. We also invite leading industry figures to the University as guest speakers.

You will also be allocated a personal tutor who will be available to provide academic and pastoral support during the whole duration of your course.

Assessment

Each of the taught modules is assessed either by formal examination, an assignment, or a balanced combination of the two. Methods of assessing assignments include essay, individual/group report, oral presentation and short test.

Information on assignments in terms of the aims, learning outcomes, assessment criteria and submissions requirements are clearly specified at the beginning of the academic year. Detailed feedback on assignment is provided to students to assist them in achieving the required learning outcomes.

The research project is assessed by dissertation and oral presentation. You will be assigned to a project supervisor who will provide you with a one-to-one supervision on your work. The research project gives you the opportunity to take what you have learnt and to explore and develop specific interests by applying it to your own piece of research, which makes it possibly the most fulfilling aspect of the course.

Special Features

This MSc programme has been specially designed to develop graduates and practising engineers and position them at the forefront of managing and leading these developments.

The course explores very current, 21st century issues around risk management, planning and programming, cost control, people and information management, contract/procurement management and sustainability. We receive input for the course from industrial partners and students get to understand project management at work through site visits.

Modules on project finance, risk, procurement and contract management, supply chain strategy, will underpin modules focusing on sustainable project, infrastructure and environmental management.

Students’ skills in gathering and understanding complex information from a variety of sources (including engineering, scientific and socio-economic information) will be developed in a module on advanced research methods. Issues relating to risk and health and safety will be developed in more specialist modules.

Women in Engineering and Computing Programme

Brunel’s Women in Engineering and Computing mentoring scheme provides our female students with invaluable help and support from their industry mentors.

Accreditation

This course has been designed in close consultation with industry and is accredited as a designated technical MSc degree by the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM) for entry years 2015 to 2017.
