Course summary

Course summary

Despite turbulence in the global economy, the construction industry continues to grow with revenue expected to reach US$15 trillion by 2025. Specialist project managers are in high demand to help negotiate projects through the inevitable hurdles that can arise due to a host of issues ranging from time constraints and safety and workforce considerations to legal issues, government regulations and environmental concerns.

Fully accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), this course will be of interest if you are a graduate in or with previous construction-related employment and if you are seeking a senior project management position within the industry.

Project management is now a well-established discipline within the construction industry, applied to projects of all sizes and levels of complexity. On this course, you’ll learn the modern management skills, techniques, and systems to successfully deliver a project from inception to completion, and how to meet a client’s requirements within the constraints of the external environment.

Course structure

This course aims to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of the techniques associated with the management of project resources, the control of project finances, the management of risk and the management of people. It provides a challenging, stimulating and professionally relevant course of study that is directly related to the management of construction projects within this rapidly changing industry.

Careers

There is a growing demand for construction project managers nationally and internationally with potential to secure roles in development, construction and building companies or government organisations and agencies, as well as commercial, management and consultancy firms. Many of our students are already on a career path in the construction industry. Whether they are architects, interior designers, surveyors, engineers, construction managers or property developers, their common aspiration is to move to more senior management positions in the construction industry. Some wish to become Chartered Surveyors or Chartered Builders. Our graduates go on or continue to work in the construction industry, working for client organisations, consultancies, Tier 1 and 2 contractors, property developers, and others.
