This programme is at NQF Level 9 and it has been designed for participants who want to develop their Construction Project Management knowledge and skills at postgraduate level. While it is open to NQF Level 8 degree holders from construction related disciplines (e.g. Civil Engineering, Quantity Surveying, Architecture, Architectural Technology, Construction Management), it is also open to those with either NQF Level 7 qualifications or Professional Body qualifications in addition to relevant work experience.
Applicants for this one-year full-time programme are a mix of recent graduates as well as others who are returning to higher education. Completing this programme and gaining the MSc qualification will enable the successful participants to obtain employment in the dynamic Engineering and Construction Industry (Irish and International) and generally enhance their overall career prospects.
Full-time over one year
The full-time programme is of interest to recent graduates as well as others who are returning to higher education in order to improve their skills and employment prospects. The full-time version of the MScCPM involves approximately 12 hours of class contact per week in each of the first 2 semesters (S1: September to December and S2: January to May).
These classes are typically held on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. The third semester (S3: May to September) is used to complete the Research Dissertation/Thesis.
Part-time over two years
The part-time programme has been designed primarily to suit those who are in employment and who wish to gain the MScCPM qualification while continuing to work. Attendance at WIT is normally required for 18 days per year in 6 x 3 day sessions (Thursday, Friday and Saturday).
There is significant use of the Institute’s online Learning Management System ‘Moodle’ on this programme.
