Course details

This programme addresses management in the construction industry in its widest sense. The purpose is to provide advanced training to graduates aspiring to higher or middle management positions in the civil engineering and building industries. It addresses the working of those organisations, as well as disciplines and techniques of practical use in the management and implementation of all stages of construction and civil engineering projects. This opens up a wide range of career opportunities, as many of the techniques are applicable both within and outside the construction industry. 

The programme includes lectures, tutorials, workshops, industrial seminars, site visits and an individual project.

Semester one modules are taken by all students to develop a firm base of general knowledge and techniques for further specialised management study. Delivered by leading academics in Birmingham Business School (BBS), the management content is research led, drawing on the expertise and reputation of BBS to help deliver a high quality experience for students. Topics include strategy, innovation, marketing, organisational behaviour and financial management. 

Semester two sees students move into a pathway of their choice, where the key management concepts tackled in the first semester will be complemented by the exploration of practical management applications by academics from the School of Engineering, drawing upon its wealth of research experience and industrial links. 

This new structure will allow us to present the core principles in semester one and then to demonstrate their application in semester two before you progress into the summer and the opportunity to investigate and develop a contemporary Engineering Management topic via a 60 credit research project.

Examples of project titles:

  • BP in the Global Oil Industry
  • Human Resources Management at Royal Bank of Scotland

MSc in Technology Management

The effective management of technology and technological innovation is essential if all the potential benefits for individuals and organisations are to be realised. Technology has the capability to transform products and processes and can make a significant contribution to organisational performance, economic growth and social well-being. Technology managers need to make complex decisions associated with identification and evaluation of technologies, developing new or improved products and processes and integrating technology with other business processes, and to manage change required by technological innovation and implementation. There is an increasing demand across public, private and not-for-profit sectors for people with the vision and the operational and strategic capability to plan, develop and manage technology and technological innovation effectively.

This MSc will provide you with the knowledge and skills critical to making the right decisions about technology acquisition, exploitation, implementation and innovation, and to really make a difference to your organisation, and your own professional development. The modules studied as part of your postgraduate certificate and diploma are designed to progressively develop your knowledge and skills. Certificate study focuses on the operational aspects of managing technological innovation and change and the diploma’s emphasis is on the strategic management of technology and technological innovation. The MSc involves in depth investigation of a technology management topic or problem of your choice.

This qualification offers both a research route and a professional route. If you need a more professionally-oriented qualification you can take The MSc professional project (T847) (30 credits). If you prefer a more research-oriented MSc, you can take the 60-credit Research project (T802). Both offer a rigorous approach to solving complex real world problems and offer essential skills for systematically and successfully addressing technology management issues in your own organisation and wider contexts. The longer research project allows more in-depth study and further develops your academic research skills. Both modules provide an excellent platform for further research studies.

Throughout your studies you have opportunities to apply your learning to your own particular technology context and so add value to your career and your workplace while you are studying. The modules are designed to be relevant whatever your personal background and experience – the knowledge and skills taught can be applied to all types of technology and all economic sectors. If technology is a significant success factor in your organisation or role then technology management is relevant to you. Our students are drawn from a very wide range of backgrounds including IT, manufacturing, healthcare, defence, financial services, local and national government services.

Career relevance

The technology management programme develops analytical skills and provides practically relevant knowledge that will equip you well for a variety of management and leadership roles. The competent technology manager is a highly valued professional, capable of ensuring that the organisation reaps all the potential rewards from its investment in technology of whatever type. You will develop a range of job-related and transferable skills such as critical thinking, creative problem solving, and the ability to cope with rapid technological change. The capabilities in research and problem-solving developed can be exploited in all professional situations at all management levels. Employers are also impressed by the commitment and determination it takes to succeed with the OU while keeping up family and work commitments. These benefits, together with the opportunities to add value by applying your learning to the workplace as you study, make technology management programmes very attractive vehicles towards success in senior management roles.

Marketing

Marketing is a fun, dynamic, complex activity (and discipline) that focuses on providing value to both organisations and consumers. Very simply, marketing is about matching what an organisation has (or can do) with someone who wants it. Marketing is about selling, it is about advertising, but it also so much more. The study and practice of the 'so much more' is what makes marketing so interesting!

In today's dynamic and global business environment, marketing permeates all areas of operations and forms an integral element of business growth and achievement. Highly qualified, innovative and international marketing practitioners, supported by well researched and pertinent marketing knowledge, are increasingly in demand.

Project management

Risk is defined by AS/NZS ISO 31000: 2009 as 'the effect of uncertainty on objectives'. The management of risk is an evolving discipline that builds on current knowledge in a diverse range of activities. The risk management specialisation focuses on operational and financial risk in today's commercial world. It provides extended skills in the strategic and process applications of risk management and prepares for the increasingly complex risk management issues faced in many areas of business and government. It prepares graduates for roles that are required to address business, insurance and financial risk. The range of units undertaken will greatly assist those seeking employment in managerial positions where risk management is an expanding field of practice.

The teaching regards a large set of courses in different disciplines, such as building technology and construction, production and management engineering, architecture, strongly rooted in the European and Italian tradition which created cities and buildings celebrated worldwide. The program prepares students to compete in the international markets in the field of technical and economic management of existing buildings and urban environment. Two specializations are available:
1) Technical maintenance and management;
2) Economic management.

Given the multidisciplinary set of competences, a number of job opportunities arises. Private and public real estate companies, banks and insurance companies, financial industry, and facility management companies are all natural professional progressions after graduation. The programme is taught in English.
