Summary

Project managing construction projects requires an overview of the entire process, from inception to completion. This course aims to provide you with a framework for understanding project management in the construction industry and, in particular, the role of the construction project manager and the associated needs of the client.

This course is aimed at professionals or graduates, wishing to pursue a career as a construction project manager. It’s suitable for professionals already working in the broad construction industries, who aspire to senior management positions. Additionally, this course is suitable for undergraduate (honours) students in related subject areas, looking to progress to study a managerial and technical postgraduate programme.

You will increase your knowledge and understanding of the systems and processes necessary to achieve successful project outcomes, including legal and contractual constraints, and people management skills. You will cover project briefing, explore design and development issues, and develop the skills to create appropriate procurement strategies.

**Key features**
- Have the option of taking a professional or industrial internship, which counts towards your Masters qualification.

- Benefit from our team of expert academic staff who have established links to industry and significant experience of working in practice.

- Hear from visiting industry and academic experts, some of whom are NTU alumni, who will be teaching parts of the modules, providing a ‘real life’ perspective on the topics you will be studying.

- Study trips to live sites in the UK and abroad are included in your course fees, designed to help develop your understanding of theory in practice.
