Course summary

The MSc Construction Management Programme is an international collaboration between Abertay University and Ecole Supérieure de Conduite de Travaux (ESCT), Vincennes, Paris (delivered in English & French). The programme is an integration of technical, managerial and entrepreneurial concepts in the context of the management of construction projects.

You'll be working with French construction companies whilst undertaking the MSc Construction Management. This puts you in the ideal position to learn the theory whilst putting it into action in real-world environments.

The programme has been developed to meet the requirements of experienced site managers and help develop your career towards senior management positions in construction contracting organisations.

In addition, you will also:

  • Acquire the tools to address the challenges of managing complex construction projects for the built environment.
  • Acquire the tools to deliver solutions which enable efficient and effective use of limited resources whilst recognising environmental concerns and changing social requirements.
  • Learn how to lead multi-disciplinary teams formed of a variety of key stakeholders which are tasked with delivering high quality urban environments.
  • Develop and undertake in-depth investigation in areas of interest relevant to construction management which integrates knowledge gained, working to a restricted timescale.

The programme is designed to produce highly skilled graduates who are capable of addressing the challenges of managing complex construction. You'll be able to deliver solutions which enable the efficient and effective use of limited resources whilst recognising environmental concerns and changing social environments.

You will be exposed to a variety of teaching, learning and assessment practices during the course of their programme. Formal lectures are generally used to introduce study areas by imparting key elements of knowledge, outlining concepts and theories, and providing examples of their use in relation to substantive Construction Management problems or issues.

Other teaching and learning activities include seminars with written and oral presentations, and project work centred on the development of specific skills of inquiry and analysis, some of which are student-led.

Laboratory sessions, field trips and industrial visits are used to develop student appreciation of the practical application of research methods and data analysis.
Assessment includes formal examinations, class tests, reports, project work and in some cases assessed oral presentations.

Your assessment culminates in the MSc Project - designed to assess your ability to synthesize knowledge and develop a sustained argument.
