Construction project managers are vital to the success of every major project, overseeing construction operations and managing schedules and budgets. This Master’s course is designed to give you the skills and knowledge needed to plan, organise and control construction operations, while building your knowledge in all stages of the process.
Construction project management requires highly skilled individuals who can lead and integrate multidisciplinary teams of professionals. That could be you.
This challenging, industry-focused course gives you the opportunity to not only develop the academic and technical knowledge you’ll need to be a ‘CPM’, but also the management and interpersonal skills so essential for success in this career.
You’ll get to build on the knowledge and experience you’ll have acquired in your undergraduate studies, or in work experience, while we help you prepare to take on the strategic responsibilities that come with managing construction projects. The course is based on the Chartered Institute of Building’s definition of construction project management, which encompasses the whole project lifecycle, from ‘inception to recycling’. As such, sustainability is a key element of this course.
Our teaching staff bring vast industry experience to the course, and many are involved in leading research as part of their own professional development – which means they’re currently involved directly in today’s construction industry, here and all over the world.
You can examine and investigate real practical issues from industry in an academic context.
The course aims to develop your skills through extensive use of case studies, seminars and discussion groups.
You’ll benefit from regular small-group tutorials with professional staff, and have the opportunity to ask for one-to-one advice from subject experts.
Guest speakers from across the construction industry support your learning.
We pledge to mentor you beyond successful postgraduate qualification, into a professional role that befits your knowledge, skills and management abilities.
This programme is ideally suited to you if you already have construction-related employment experience, and are aiming for senior positions in project management. It aims to develop your awareness of the importance of construction projects to clients, and the context and constraints in which projects are procured and undertaken.
As a construction project manager, you’ll take the lead and play a pivotal role in the successful completion of construction projects. You’ll be responsible for co-ordinating the wide range of resources involved in construction projects, such as labour, materials, finance and consultants to achieve the client’s goals – on time, within budget and to the quality standards required. As a successful graduate of this course, you’ll have developed the management, leadership and problem-solving qualities necessary for a career in this varied, rewarding and challenging field.
