The MSc in Construction Project Management prepares students for a professional role in the management of construction projects by providing students with an understanding of both the people-related and technical requirements necessary for the successful management of projects, as well as their organisational and strategic aspects. The course enables theoretical and conceptual exploration of construction project management issues whilst also stressing the essential practical aspects such as project control mechanisms, resource management, budgeting and cost management, stakeholder management, contract management, IT applications and information management.
Engagement with important and emerging construction industry issues is built into course Unit learning and assessment activities; the core Construction Project Management Professional Practice unit being delivered in partnership with industry partner organisations so that students are exposed to the challenging and exciting environment of contemporary civil engineering and construction projects.
The MSc in Construction Project Management is accredited by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and is listed by the Joint Board of Moderators (JMB) as being an Approved Further Learning Scheme for Chartered Engineer status.
Manchester Engineering Campus Development (MECD), the University of Manchester's new £400m purpose built home for engineering and material science , is nearing completion. The physical move to the new development is scheduled to take place between January 2022 and December 2022. Whilst it is anticipated there may be some disruption due to power shutdowns, areas of buildings closing and reduced access during the period of the move, extensive plans are in place to ensure there is minimal interference and excellent student experience remains pivotal. If you have any questions about how the move may affect you, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
