At the University of Reading studying the Project Management is traditionally described in terms of the overall planning, control and co-ordination of a project from inception to completion, aimed at meeting a client's requirements and ensuring completion within specified constraints of time, cost and quality.
While this definition continues to provide a good starting point, the reality of modern project management is extremely complex.
Client organisations are often pluralistic, comprising multiple stakeholders with different objectives. The complexity of the construction process thus leads to inherent uncertainty.
The role of the project manager is to integrate the various sectors of the industry in order to manage key interfaces throughout the project supply chain. Therefore, the successful project manager must have the ability to integrate and lead an interdisciplinary team in uncertainty.
Effective leadership and sensitivity to human issues are vital. Modern clients demand an integrated and effective approach to the management of their construction projects.
The discipline of project management continues to evolve and our MSc in Project Management is at the forefront of these developments.The distinctive focus of the course is on the strategic management of projects, programmes and portfolios.
The aim of the course is to provide a coherent framework for the discipline and practice of project management.
Modules can include sessions delivered by leading practitioners, and the course is continually informed not only by the latest developments in industry, but also by on-going international research.
