This programme is designed to allow our students to develop:

Practical and professional skills

in the critical acquisition, analysis, interpretation and understanding of Building Information Modelling in the context of Project Management within the built environment

A holistic approach

by integrating the technical aspects and underlying knowledge of Building Information Modelling through design, engineering and construction with financial, legal, IT, commercial leadership and managerial skills of business administration in the management of simple to complex projects from project conception through to construction, operation and maintenance

Critical and analytical problem solving skills

across a broad range of Building Information Modelling orientated transferable skills that relate to information technology, computing support systems, teamwork, group work, and personal presentations and interactions to prepare graduates for employment within the remit of project managers with a working knowledge of the BIM process and underlying capabilities

The ability to apply appropriate theoretical and practical management methods

under the remit of Building Information Modelling practices and procedures, to provide support analysis and solutions to design, engineering and construction problems

Opportunities for Careers

There are excellent career opportunities for our graduates as project managers, BIM coordinators, contract managers, BIM implementation managers, design managers, project architects, project engineers, planners, etc., within project management consultants, construction companies, property developers and government agencies, amongst others. Graduates are also well prepared for PhD research, which may lead to careers in research establishments and universities.

This programme in Sustainable Practices in the Built Environment is a unique opportunity to learn and develop skills in a cross-disciplinary environment. Read more
This programme in Sustainable Practices in the Built Environment is a unique opportunity to learn and develop skills in a cross-disciplinary environment. it is made up of four parallel specialisms in:
1. Contested Space;
2. Critical Spatial Processes
3. Materials, Components and Systems

Its aim in offering specialisms at different scales in sustainability is to facilitate the shared exchange of knowledge and practice and the opportunity of inter-disciplinary and collaborative learning and working. We encourage and facilitate students to develop a critical approach to the interaction between sustainability research, theory and practice, and in particular their own praxis, and can provide students with opportunities to up-skill in the context of sustainability.

Our students will have the opportunity to build appropriate professional networks (and extend their existing networks) within the field of sustainability and help position graduates as key participants and protagonists and leaders in the global green economy and wider society. Students will be able to engage, through live projects, with the latest thinking and processes in sustainable practices.

The overall programme aims are to ensure that each graduating student has:
•an understanding of how the concept of sustainability impacts on Built Environment practices in general and their practice in particular.

•an understanding of a range of research and design methodologies and an ability to select, develop and trial methods appropriate to a specific practice context.

•an ability to identify, draw on and contribute to appropriate networks both directly and remotely in order to build a sustainable bank of knowledge, interconnections and approaches. (only MSc and PG Dip)

•experience of a multi-disciplinary/ multi-stakeholder approach, and how it impacts on the sustainable design, specification and management of those aspects of the built environment relevant to their specialism.

•a contemporary range of verbal and visual representation skills in order to facilitate communication and exchange across a range of stakeholders.

•an ability to undertake a substantial, specialist and independent research project that is built off a sustainability strategy, possibly in collaboration with a client (MSc only).

Materials, Components and Systems

Examining sustainability through in-depth understanding of building materials and systems and appropriate means of prototyping, testing and simulating.

Critical Spatial Processes

Investigating alternative and critical forms of spatial practice within an ethical and economic dimension.

Contested Space

Drawing on one of the School’s specialist international research areas: working within contested and post-conflict contexts.

The School of Planning, Architecture and Civil Engineering has a reputation as one of the leading centres for structural design in the UK. This degree offers the opportunity for postgraduate students to join this success story.

The programme is aimed at students with good numerical and analytical abilities, who are working towards Chartered Engineer status. The professional bodies, such as the Institution of Structural Engineers and the Institution of Civil Engineers, require members to hold an accredited Masters level degree for entry. The research element is aimed at those who would wish to consider a research career or a PhD in Structures.

The applied nature of this course prepares students for working in a professional design consultancy. Problem based learning is used to focus knowledge in a fun, yet challenging and realistic manner.

Programme Content

The degree has been designed to develop enhanced, structural and analytic abilities with the objective of applying them in design scenarios, with an emphasis on the business case for engineering projects. The modules are as follows:

Semester 1

Bridge Engineering
Construction Management
Numerical Methods
Research Methods for Managers
Structural Repairs and Maintenance
Whole Life Management of Structures

Semester 2

Business Management
Design and Communication
Design Management
Geotechnics
Structures

Semester 3

Research Dissertation

Special Features

Unique:

this new degree is unique in its appreciation of management of aging structures with modules such as 'Structural Repairs and Maintenance' and 'Whole Life Management of Structures' bringing a new set of skills to the discipline of Structural Engineering. In developed economies, over 50 per cent of expenditure on the built environment is on management of existing infrastructure. The industry therefore requires specialists with skills to address these challenges.

Accreditation:

this degree will be accredited as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for a Chartered Engineer (CEng) for candidates who have already acquired an Accredited CEng (Partial) BEng(Hons) undergraduate first degree. See http://www.jbm.org.uk for further information.

Progression:

within the School, there is a large, young and vibrant Structures academic team, and as such this new degree forms an excellent basis for those wishing to pursue further research.

To develop a holistic approach by integrating the technical knowledge of design, engineering and construction with financial, legal, IT, commercial leadership and managerial skills of business administration in the management of simple to complex projects (project conception, design management, procurement, construction engineering and maintenance); and construction organisations (construction economics and finance, strategic management, information systems, construction law, international construction markets and competitive advantage).

To develop critical and analytical problem-solving skills across a broad range of subjects and transferable skills that relate to literacy, numeracy, computing, teamwork, group work, and personal presentations and interactions to prepare graduates for more general employment.

To serve as an excellent introduction and training for further research leading to the degree of PhD and participate in the research activities of a world-class research centre of the University.

The programme is offered to students who have successfully completed the BSc programme in Environmental Planning, but is also available to other graduates, particularly those from the built environment professions.

Students entering the programme should be aware that it is focused on the design of the built environment. It is therefore expected that students should have a very keen interest in contemporary urban and rural design issues. Students without a background in design will be required to attend a number of additional lectures/workshops in design principles.
