Course summary

Why choose this course?

This postgraduate certificate, studied traditionally or by Distance Learning is the initiator and comprises 60 credits of study towards the MSc Construction Project Management course. Learners will be introduced to the growing need within the built environment sector for professionals with a thorough understanding of the management of the construction process from inception to completion. As a student you will experience structured learning with problem-based scenarios and research that will develop your capabilities for critical thinking, argument, creativity and encourage innovation, all of which may be brought into the practical decision making processes encountered in built environment projects.

This course will introduce you to the art and science of construction project management covering areas that may include strategy, control, technical, commercial, legal, financial and organisational issues. You will begin to reflect on and make cases for the integration of the technical (hard) and social (soft) management styles required within the context of strategic and operational construction projects.

Career Paths

Students successfully completing the traditionally taught course will be well placed to pursue their membership aspirations with a number of professional bodies including the RICS and CIOB. During the course they will have opportunities to gain training qualifications with external providers such as CSCS. Accreditation of the Distance Learning course is on going.

Employment opportunities in construction project management may be found within both consultancy and contracting companies in the strategic and operational contexts of building and business projects in the areas of architecture, civil engineering, construction, services engineers, structural engineers, quantity surveyors, building surveyors, construction management teams. The emphasis on the business planning, feasibility and planning stages expands the focus of the construction contract and opens up the possibilities for consultancy and operational management.
