Course summary

Course overview:

Project management processes are about implementing methodologies, knowledge, skills and techniques to successfully accomplish projects in an efficient and effective manner. Whether you are managing a complex project, bringing a new product to market or managing an organizational change, this course provides you with the skills and knowledge to plan, implement, control and deliver your projects at strategic and operational levels.

This course develops the competencies required by project managers in the modern engineering, manufacturing, construction, telecom, process, oil and gas industries. You gain significant analytical, interpersonal and practical competencies through tailored modules that cover advance planning and visualisation, risk management, procurement and contract strategy, health and safety, managing operations and finance, and management of change. In addition, you also undertake a major research project that allows you to specialise in a field of interest to you.

You have access to our IT Laboratory installed with SYNCHRO software and @RISK® risk analysis tool. SYNCHRO is the 4D BIM construction scheduling and project management software. You will learn to use the software, integrate the schedule and 3D model, assess and review the integrated model. @RISK® is a risk analysis tool widely used in Fortune 100 companies and engineering organisations.

The software uses Monte Carlo simulations to visualise all possible outcomes in uncertain situations using quantitative analyses. You will also learn how to use the software, develop models, simulations, sensitivity analysis and interpret risk model outputs.

How you are assessed:

Assessment varies from module to module. The assessment methodology could include in-course assignments, presentations and/or formal examinations.

Your Advanced Practice module is assessed by an individual written reflective report (3,000 words) together with a study or workplace log, where appropriate, and through a poster presentation.

The two-year master’s degree with advanced practice enhances your qualification by adding a vocational or research based internship to the one-year master’s programme. A vocational internship is a great way to gain work experience and give your CV a competitive edge. A research internship provides you with the opportunity to develop your analytical, team-working, research and academic skills by working alongside a research team in an academic setting. We guarantee a research internship, but cannot guarantee a vocational internship. We will, however, provide you with practical support and advice on how to find and secure your own vocational internship position should you prefer this type of internship.
