The course includes six taught modules including:
- project management;
- construction contract management;
- organisational theory and behaviour;
- contemporary issuse and research methodology;
- building information modelling and management;
- global professional development;
- financial management and control;
- intregrated project;
- research project.
The course can be studied on a full-time (one year), or part-time basis (two years). Tuition is in one-week intensive blocks, with a few weeks' gap in between blocks for individual research and study. Assessment for the taught modules is a mixture of examination and coursework. For part-time students the blocks are spread over two years rather than one.
There is also an integrated group project and an individual research project. The integrated project provides you with the opportunity to integrate knowledge and skills gained in previous and concurrent modules of study and (where appropriate) in the workplace, and use these to carry out a comprehensive analysis of construction management problems.
The project will require group work integrating the technical, economic, socio-political and interpersonal aspects of the project process, and can be work-based for part-time students.
As part of this course you will study Global Professional Development, a beneficial new 10-credit module developed in partnership with the CMI. Explore this module's content and benefits here.
