This programme allows you to develop your knowledge of the entire project management process, from inception and feasibility, engineering, procurement and implementation through to commissioning and operation. Particular emphasis is placed on financial, planning and management aspects of the project life cycle, to equip you with the range of skills you’ll need to make a major contribution at every stage of a project.
Students wishing to acquire and further their knowledge regarding the management side of engineering projects will have an opportunity to do so on this course, which focuses on the project life-cycle. Should further technical engineering and management expertise be sought then this option is also available through the International Construction Management and Engineering MSc (Eng) which focuses on the whole-life cycle. Both of these programmes develop you as a professional communicator so you need to be prepared to spend time on improving your writing and presentation skills.
This degree is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for a Chartered Engineer (CEng) for candidates who have already acquired a partial CEng accredited undergraduate first degree.
This course is also accredited by EUR-ACE, the European quality label for engineering degree programmes at Bachelor and Master level.
You’ll gain a thorough understanding of a range of topics affecting how construction and engineering projects are managed. In addition to the tools and techniques that are used by project managers, you’ll examine the issues and challenges they currently face and consider them in a “whole life project” context. You’ll look at topics such as project cash flow, project appraisals and stakeholder relationship management among many others.
You’ll also focus on key topics such as project funding, especially for major infrastructure projects, as well as procurement management and supply chain issues. The process of value engineering, the concepts of value management and risk management will also be covered in depth.
Over the summer months you’ll work with your supervisor to complete your independent research project – a chance to demonstrate the knowledge/skills you’ve gained and perhaps specialise in an area that relates to your career ambitions.
