The programme provides a wealth of skills development in the areas of project management, development and project economics, construction management, risk and value management, and international project finance.

Programme performance

The MSc International Project Management programme began in 2005 to address the need for a project management professional in managing increasingly complex projects.

Programme description

The professional project manager must deliver projects on schedule, on budget, to scope and with the right quality. The programme develops the multi-faceted skill set needed to manage international projects successfully. It is developed and delivered with the involvement of senior industry practitioners and is accredited by four prestigious international professional bodies.

International projects reach beyond national boundaries, in terms of project purpose or nationality of stakeholders. They all require professionals who arecapable of ensuring a seamless transition betweenlocal and global players in a variety of cultural andsocio-economic settings around the world.

Project management has emerged as a core ingredient of business success. Escalating global competition, price pressures and growing regulatory and legal risks are challenging organisations to perform at peak efficiency.

The value of a formal project management education builds a foundation for more effective and efficient practices and goes beyond merely learning a few project management tools and techniques in a short workshop. It creates both improved competence and confidence.

The programme provides a wealth of skills development in the areas of project management, development and project economics, construction management, risk and value management, and international project finance.

Career prospects

The demand for project professionals, especially those with project management education and training, is growing rapidly. Demand in many regions is exceeding supply, as more companies adopt a project management culture and project numbers continue to grow globally.

Aligning the programme to international project management accreditation standards tied to real-world learning outcomes allows graduates to progress directly to the assessment of professional competence in their chosen career path.

MSc Maintenance Management provides suitably qualified or experienced engineers of all disciplines with, modern cost effective maintenance management techniques for the efficient operation of all types of sophisticated, complex equipment.

Graduates of this programme can expect to find work in the areas of maintenance engineering/management, asset management, condition monitoring and reliability and safety engineering.

Description

Maintenance management has grown and developed into a significant major strategic issue for ensuring effective operation of plant and engineering systems in order to meet business objectives. The programme equips engineering graduates from a variety of disciplines with the knowledge and skills to allow them to become effective maintenance managers in a wide range of industries.

Maintenance plays a major part in ensuring the reliability of systems, planning availability of assets, health and safety, environment and product quality standards, customer service and other important areas. If these issues are not addressed, the survival of many organisations is at risk.

Historically, maintenance has been associated with the cost of labour and spare parts. With the advent of modern technology, maintenance has now evolved from a non-issue to a more strategic concern in most organisations. However, other factors such as reliability and availability, downtime and product quality can be key factors when measuring maintenance effectiveness. In addition, the objectives must be attained in accordance with environmental and safety regulations.

The programme provides suitably qualified or experienced engineers of all disciplines with, modern cost effective maintenance management techniques for the efficient operation of all types of sophisticated, complex equipment.

Why Choose This Programme?

Today’s modern and efficient companies require top level maintenance strategies to match their investment. This impacts many industries particularly the advanced manufacturing technologies, transport industry, food production and the oil and gas industry.

This has resulted in a considerable gap between current maintenance skill set and the required skills and expertise needed to maximise the potential benefits from the use of technologies.

Assessment

The taught modules are either assessed by coursework only or a combination of coursework and examination. In the latter case the final mark is determined by weighted average of the two elements. The MSc project is assessed by project reports, practical operation and an electronic presentation.

Career Opportunities

Graduates of this programme can expect to find work in the areas of maintenance engineering/management, asset management, condition monitoring and reliability and safety engineering.

Recent graduates have gone on to work for employers including Royal Mail, British Petroleum, British Energy, Scottish Power, First Scotrail, Siemens plc, Sellafield, Babcock International Group, Ciba Speciality Chemicals, Allied Bakeries, Alcan and Albion Automotive amongst others.
