About

In this Management of Complex Projects programme from University College London (UCL), students gain a systems view of project management, so they can develop effective technical solutions within a constrained commercial context. 

Overview

In today's fast-moving, global marketplace, traditional project management techniques based around strategic planning and control are not enough. Many modern projects are not only complicated (tough technical problems needing co-ordination across many suppliers) but also complex (with unclear requirements). 

The Management of Complex Projects MSc from University College London (UCL) has been designed to produce project managers equipped to lead the most challenging of projects.

We teach students a number of guiding principles to enable them to manage complex projects and help them to develop key skills such as risk management, requirements management, conflict resolution, effective communication and leadership.

Teaching and learning

The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, case-studies, discussion sessions, workshop activity, and project work. Assessment is through a combination of course work, in class tests and written examinations. The research modules are assessed through a written report and a short presentation.

Careers

Complex systems are commonplace in many sectors including rail, aerospace, defence, construction and energy. The ability to manage effectively the projects that deliver such systems is crucial in these industries, and individuals who can demonstrate these skills are in high demand. 

Employability

We have an industrial advisory board including representatives from Airbus, Atkins, BAE Systems, Boeing, DSTL, Leonardo, MAATS Tech, PA Consulting, Rolls-Royce, Transport for London and Ultra Electronics. These organisations provide project support and even one-to-one careers guidance in some cases.

Drawing on our experience of providing short training courses for industry, such as the Project Manager Training Course for the European Space Agency, we integrate  skills development into our teaching. This includes the skills of communication, negotiation, leadership and motivation, decision-making and managing multi-faceted, time-constrained tasks which will be invaluable in future careers.
