The programme offers a unique educational experience for professionals looking to use cutting-edge techniques in the management of built assets. Our focus is wide, but targeted, and touches on many aspects of building better places and spaces, from design and construction through to operation and maintenance.
The digital realm offers solutions to some of society's biggest problems - but there is often a knowledge gap that prevents its power from being harnessed. This MSc draws on digital advances such as building information modelling, smart cities, big data and internet of things, to help close that gap through the management of built assets and shape a better world.
Students undertake modules to the value of 180 credits.
The programme consists of six core modules (90 credits), two optional modules (30 credits) and a dissertation (60 credits).
Students may take the recommended optional modules or a minimum of any relevant 30 credits from across The Bartlett, UCL's Faculty of the Built Environment.
The availability of all optional modules is subject to demand.
Students undertake an original project based on research work which culminates in a 10,000-word dissertation.
Teaching and learning
The programme is delivered through a combination of formal and interactive lectures, workshops, visiting speakers and site visits. Assessment is through coursework, essays, group projects and presentation, and the dissertation.
Further information on modules and degree structure is available on the department website: Digital Innovation in Built Asset Management MSc
The programme is forward-thinking, meaning the techniques learned will be relevant not just today, or tomorrow, but for the infrastructure owners and operators, companies engaged in strategic and operational facilities and asset management, design consultants and academic researchers shaping our digital future.
This MSc has been developed in collaboration with high-profile organisations and individuals from across the built environment sector. The process of creating the MSc was industry-led from the start - our connections ensure it remains at the cutting edge.
Located in London, The Bartlett is at the heart of a large cluster of creative architecture and engineering firms, next to the UK's seat of government and finance and has all the resources of a world city to hand. It offers unrivalled networking opportunities, with alumni in the majority of the major firms in London, who often give lectures to students and appear at networking events.
The Bartlett is the UK's largest multidisciplinary Faculty of the Built Environment, bringing together scientific and professional specialisms required to research, understand, design, construct and operate the buildings and urban environments of the future.
The Research Excellence Framework, or REF, is the system for assessing the quality of research in UK higher education institutions. The 2014 REF was carried out by the UK's higher education funding bodies, and the results used to allocate research funding from 2015/16.
