Master of Science Construction Project Management
The programme aims to develop understanding of the management functions required of and by organisations and projects in construction, including the full spectrum of the development process. This requires students to be able to comprehend and engage in case studies of the process., through which buildings and works of civil engineering are created and supported with building information modelling, and, in particular, analyse the environmental, economic, technical, and legal constraints of construction.
Upon programme completion, students in Master of Science Construction Project Management will be equipped to:
- Justify solutions for those concerned with construction organisations and the procurement, design, production and maintenance of construction works;
- Apply variance and unpredictability within projects and integrate work into the context of the wider economic, market and social environment in relation to professional practice;
- Develop products and safe systems of work that protect the health and safety of those affected by the construction industry;
- Demonstrate an awareness of sustainability and develop strategies to minimise the impact of the development process on the natural environment.
