Learn how to lead and integrate a team of multi-disciplinary professionals on this Construction Project Management Masters. This postgraduate course provides links to leading practitioners, RICS and CIOB accreditation, and direct entry to RICS APS.

•Course available to study full time (1 year) and part time (2 years)
•Fully accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB)
•Strong emphasis on developing the professional and transferable skills required by industry
•Part time, day release, study option if you are already in employment
•Graduates eligible for direct entrance on to the RICS APC professional training programme and CIOB PDP if employed


Construction project management is a highly challenging role, requiring skilled individuals with the ability to lead and integrate a multi-disciplinary team of professionals.

Increasingly complex organisational structures coupled with rapid technological change require project managers to be aware of, and appreciate the need for, sophisticated communications systems.

This Masters course will give you the knowledge and practical skills required to undertake a variety of project management roles in the construction and property sectors after graduation. As the course addresses projects from the perspectives of both demand and supply, it is also ideally suited for individuals from other sectors involved in the procurement of built assets, for example, on behalf of project sponsors in the public sector.

Close partnerships with industry and practice ensure the course – and our graduates – are responsive to the changing needs of industry, government, local communities and professional practice.

The course is taught through a mixture of lectures, tutorials, seminars, projects and field study visits.

The intention is to provide a stimulating and challenging programme of study resulting in the development of self-reliant, versatile, enterprising and competent construction project managers.

The programme will offer the appropriate type and level of support as you build the knowledge, understanding and skills to become an independent learner for the future. It even enables you to exercise some choice as to what you study in relation to your own background, interests or career aspirations.

The specific aims of the programme are to:
•develop and/or extend your exposure to the current and emerging theories and practice of project management specifically in a construction and engineering industry context
•encourage a risk management approach to problem solving
•provide opportunities for collaborative and individual student-centred study, developing analytical, critical, problem solving and research skills appropriate to the role of a construction project manager
•provide clear career development opportunities to aspiring cognate and non-cognate project managers within the construction and engineering sector
•develop and/or extend your exposure to current and emerging principles and practice within a global construction industry

Please see guidance below on core and option modules for further information on what you will study.
Level 7
Research Methods: Gain an understanding of the academic research process and the differing techniques, strategies and methods used to undertake research in the built environment. This module is studied before the Dissertation module.
Dissertation: The dissertation submission is usually between 15-18,000 words depending on the subject area. It allows you to develop an area of interest in depth and to critically analyse this area.
Project Management Fundamentals: To explore and promote contemporary project management principles and concepts. Also to examine processes, tools and methodologies of project management through a problem based learning approach using industry case studies.
Project Planning, Executing, Controlling and Closure: To develop the requisite project management skills and knowledge necessary to manage the key processes of planning, executing, controlling and closing a project at appropriate stages in the project life cycle. Industry standard project simulation software is used to apply the theoretical knowledge in a context.
Production Management and BIM: Will provide an in-depth understanding into the production management of modern, complex and fast paced construction projects. It also provides an appropriate awareness and expertise about key aspects of Building Information Modelling (BIM) within the Construction Management role
Sustainable and Lean Principles within Construction: To identify and critically appraise how environmental sustainability and lean principles can be incorporated into a more modern and innovative construction organisation and industry
Collaborative BIM Project: Allows students to follow BIM protocols and practice in a collaborative multidisciplinary project team to achieve project success. Real life project simulations are worked on using industry standard software
Prince 2®: To develop the requisite skills and knowledge needed in order to apply the PRINCE2® method to the management of different stages of the project life cycle
