This programme aims to develop a critical understanding of the factors that influence engineering management within the context of, and applied to, engineering projects.
The programme commences in mid-September and for the first two semesters students follow a programme of lectures, tutorials and assignments. This programme involves examinations in January and in May/June. The remaining months are spent on a research project and the submission of a dissertation, which must be submitted by the beginning of the following September.
The programme is based on a template of 5 core units and 3 optional or directed units. Following the successful completion of 8 units (120 credits) students will undertake a dissertation. The dissertation, if at all possible, should relate to a real project situation. However, when this is not possible dissertation topics related to the programme content can be agreed.
The core course units are common to each route and typically include:-
- Commercial Management
- Management of Projects
- People and Organisation
- Project Planning and Control
- Project Management Research Methods
Optional and directed course units typically include:
- Business Projects Involving IS/IT
- Commercial Contract Management
- Environmental Assessment
- Infrastructure Projects in Developing Countries
- Project Finance
- Risk Management
