Course summary

Overview

Many engineering projects are now undertaken by multidisciplinary teams who are responsible for the whole project life cycle in a multi-project or programme management environment. Typically, these projects are becoming increasingly complex. As a result, team members are expected to have a range of project management skills, including procurement knowledge, financial engineering competency and strategic awareness.

This Masters degree 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.

Accreditation

This degree is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM) comprising of the Institution of Civil Engineers, Institution of Structural Engineers, Institute of Highway Engineers, and the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation on behalf of the Engineering Council 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.

Learning and teaching

Our ground-breaking research feeds directly into teaching, and you’ll have regular contact with staff who are at the forefront of their disciplines. You’ll have regular contact with them through lectures, seminars, tutorials, small group work and project meetings.

You’ll also have access to all relevant specialist software required for your studies.

Independent study is also important to the programme, as you develop your problem-solving and research skills as well as your subject knowledge.

On this course you’ll be taught by our expert academics, from lecturers through to professors. You may also be taught by industry professionals with years of experience, as well as trained postgraduate researchers, connecting you to some of the brightest minds on campus.

Assessment

You’ll be assessed using a range of techniques including case studies, technical reports, presentations, in-class tests, assignments and exams.

Career opportunities

Many of our previous graduates now work as project managers for construction companies, in consultancy or for large client organisations. Alternatively, you may choose to continue to work as an engineer or general manager, but with increased input into the project work of an organisation.

Graduates have gone on to find work with companies such as Arup, British Nuclear Fuels, KPMG (Major Projects Advisory), Laing O’Rourke, MNHD, Mott MacDonald, Nexen Petroleum, Petrochem Kazakhstan, Seplat Petroleum Development Company and Sir Robert McAlpine.
