With this course you’ll gain transferable skills in project management and specialist knowledge about construction projects.
The course covers how to plan construction projects, how to manage supply chains, how to keep people working together, and how to use Building Information Modelling (BIM) for a more efficient construction process.
Strong demand for construction project managers means there will be significant opportunities for you to take up a well-paid, challenging and international career. The course is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), which gives it additional credibility in the eyes of potential employers.
The course is also available through part-time and distance learning modes, and with the option of an advanced practice element.
The course is particularly aimed at people with at least some background in construction or across the wider architectural, engineering and construction (AEC) industry. If you have background from a different sector you may wish to consider our MSc Project Management.
This course will open up opportunities in management roles in construction-related organisations, particularly internationally-driven contracting companies. Past graduates have gone on to work for companies such as Arup, Arcadis, BAM Construct UK, BDP, Bouygues Construction, Carillion, Kier Group, Laing O’Rourke, Mace, Mott MacDonald, Ryder Architecture, Sir Robert McAlpine, Skanska and Turner & Townsend. Job roles have included BIM coordinators, design managers, digital engineers, directors, management consultants, project managers and technical specialists.
The course could also lead you to a postgraduate research degree such as an MPhil, PhD or Professional Doctorate. If you decide to start up your own business, it’s good to know that the combined turnover of our graduates’ start-up companies is higher than that of any other UK university.
Whatever you decide to do, you will have the transferable skills that employers expect from a Masters graduate from Northumbria University. These include the ability to tackle complex issues through conceptualisation and undertaking research, the ability to contribute to new processes and knowledge, and the ability to formulate balanced judgements when considering incomplete or ambiguous data.
