These programmes have been designed to:
Develop the intellectual, practical and professional skills of the learner in the critical acquisition, analysis, interpretation and understanding of the management of construction projects and organisations
Apply appropriate theoretical and practical management methods in the analysis and solution of design, engineering and construction problems
Develop a holistic approach to the planning, monitoring and control of construction projects by integrating the technical knowledge of design, engineering and construction with financial, legal, IT, commercial leadership and managerial skills of business administration in the management of simple to complex projects through their various stages from inception, feasibility, strategy, design, construction, commissioning and into maintenance; and in construction organisations; e.g. construction economics and finance, strategic management, information systems, construction law, international construction markets and competitive advantage
Develop critical and analytical problem-solving skills across a broad range of subjects and transferable skills that relate to literacy, numeracy, computing, teamwork, group work, and personal presentations and interactions to prepare graduates for more general employment.
The course’s primary focus is on project management, which will give you the chance to take your career forward in any industry, not just in construction.
We teach the principles of project management:
the distinct discipline of working to agreed deadlines starts and finishes on a given project – with an awareness of the global challenges facing the industry, not least the need to make construction sustainable.
You will learn to apply management methods to design, engineering and construction problems, and be able to be plan, monitor and control construction projects by integrating technical knowledge with leadership, commercial and managerial skills.
