Teaching and learning

The Engineering Project Management MSc is a full time course which is studied over 12 months, starting in September each year. The programme comprises eight taught course units, each worth 15 credits, and a research dissertation worth 60 credits. Students study four core units fundamental to project management, and which are shared by students on the other programmes within the group. Students must also select three option units and carry out an Engineering Project Management based dissertation.

Assessment of the taught part of the programme is via a combination of formal written examinations and coursework assignments, which will include group work and oral presentations. Some assessment is based on online material provided by the Association for Project Management (APM) and PRINCE2 (a process-based method for effective project management).
