MSc course units

The full time MSc courses within our Management of Projects group of programmes are theory-focussed but also expose students to real live projects.

The four full time MScs within the Management of Projects group of programmes are:

  • MSc Management of Projects
  • MSc Commercial Project Management
  • MSc Construction Project Management
  • MSc Engineering Project Management

The difference between the four MSc courses

To successfully complete the MSc course students must pass eight taught units, of which five are core compulsory units and students select three optional units from those available, as outlined in the table below. Students also undertake a written dissertation at the end of Semester 2.

Y - unit is available as an optional unit, N - unit is not available as an optional unit
