About the course

Within the Management of Projects Group of Programmes we offer four MSc courses: Management of Projects, Commercial Project Management, Construction Project Management and Engineering Project Management; with the emphasis very much focussed on developing skills such as critical analysis and problem-solving.

We constantly update the material in each unit and, where appropriate, offer new units. Each course has a unit only taken by students on that course and we also include access to on-line material provided by the Association for Project Management (APM) and PRINCE2 (PRojects In Controlled Environments).  

The courses are delivered within an engineering school, which really sets them apart from other similar courses which are often based in business schools. Therefore many engineering examples are used during the course, as well as examples from many other disciplines.   

Links with industry

We have regular guest seminars with speakers from industry and some companies come to make presentations to students as part of their recruitment strategy. We also have several companies who offer industry-focussed dissertation topics.
