The teaching methods include lectures, small group seminars, workshops, master classes and field visits. As this is a Masters course there is a significant element of independent learning and self-motivated reflection.
You’ll undertake a final Masters level research project that will hone your skills in evaluating and applying research techniques and methodologies. The topic of the project will reflect your own unique interests.
Assessments are designed to give feedback as well as to monitor your level of achievement. The assessed projects will enable you to test your skills in ways that relate to current industrial practice. Specific assessment methods include assignments, written reports, exams, group presentations and debates.
This course will open up opportunities in project management roles in construction and many other industries. Past graduates have gone on to work for multinational companies such as BAE Systems, Volvo Car Group, NHS, Siemens, IBM, Hewlett-Packard, Shell and Virgin Money. Job roles have included project managers, programme managers, project portfolio managers, management consultants, business developers, entrepreneurs, quality managers and directors.
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.
The course could also lead you to a postgraduate research degree such as an MPhil, PhD or Professional Doctorate.
Whatever you decide to do, this course will help you develop a global mind-set and international outlook which will be hugely valued by future employers.
