Learning emphasises the need for integration in projects and leadership in performance improvement, with a focus on enabling you to develop a deep understanding of project and process management. You will recognise the significance of process, technology and people to the success of projects in the design, property and construction industries, and will leave with the knowledge to plan construction projects and manage project information and lead and work effectively with project teams, as well as the skills to analyse corporate problems, alternative strategies, and to implement these changes.
The construction industry has witnessed a marked change over the last few years, increasingly moving away from the traditional approach to project management in construction to a more integrated approach, fusing together the design and construction elements where once they would be viewed as separate management disciplines. Therefore a graduate entering the construction management arena must be well equipped to cope with the demands of the construction industry and its expectations of project management. Salford has an exceptionally high graduate employment rate for Project Management in Construction, with our graduates employed in the built environment, civil engineering, heavy engineering, offshore and petrochemical industries.
