The MDA is a new programme that aims to equip students with the expertise necessary for the successful administration and management the design process in the procurement of buildings. It is intended to fulfil the growing need for experts in design management, working within consultancies, or in contracting or specialist contractor firms, or in client bodies.

The programme is open to all graduate construction professionals, and those concerned with the procurement and management of buildings (for example clients, architects, engineers, surveyors, and design-build and specialist contractors). It is expected that they have several years experience in industry, as well as a primary qualification in a related field.

The MDA is a blended learning programme which combines online study with Cardiff based short courses.

Teaching

On this course you will be taught through blended learning: a combination of distance learning methods and on-site courses.

The distance learning methods will mainly be delivered through detailed course notes and guided reading. We will also send you regular written feedback on your work. There will be one half-day on-line seminar event for each module. Recordings of lectures and seminars will also be available on-line through the University’s virtual learning environment, Learning Central.

The distance learning element is supplemented by on-site courses, normally two days per module, where the aim is to build on the base knowledge established through course notes and through advanced seminars given by leading experts. These will normally be interactive and involve group workshops, which are designed to encourage you to share experience and knowledge gained in practice. These short courses play an important role in our teaching, as they offer you an opportunity to interact with fellow students.

Due to the nature of this course, you are responsible for reading any emails sent by module tutors or announcements made through Learning Central on a frequent basis.

Assessment

You will be assessed through a range of course work, including structured assignments, case studies, reports and essays (see module descriptions for more details). There are no examinations or class tests.

Career Prospects

Students who undertake this course are required to already be in employment. However, this course is designed to enhance their professional development, and aid in career progression.
