Course Summary


Our Project and Infrastructure Management MSc degree has been developed to equip you with a broad range of knowledge and management skills to manage contemporary engineering projects from inception to completion, and to maintain and manage the resulting infrastructure throughout its lifetime.

You will study the traditional elements of project management and deepen your knowledge of risk analysis and sustainability. You’ll also develop advanced knowledge on project infrastructure development and how management of budgets, human resources and supply chains can affect overall success of the project.

You will have 24-hour access to our purpose-built computer laboratories where the latest industry standard engineering software packages are available for you to use. You’ll also benefit from a wealth of both physical and electronic resources including up-to-date journals and ebooks in Brunel’s library.

During your time at Brunel, guest lectures are delivered by industry professionals who present a valuable insight into the real world of engineering and infrastructure project delivery. To enhance your learning, you have the advantage of Brunel’s close location to London and will go on site visits to high-profile development projects.

Our MSc in project and infrastructure management is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM). The JBM comprises the Institution of Civil Engineers, the Institution of Structural Engineers, the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation, and the Institute of Highway Engineers. These four professional bodies ensure that your engineering degree meets the academic requirement to qualify as a professional engineer. This accredited MSc degree in project and infrastructure management fully meets the educational requirement for progression to Chartered Engineer (CEng) status. It is studied full-time over one year.

Course content

You will study the taught modules in the first two terms and then spend four months working on your dissertation. The dissertation is research-based and covers all aspects of project infrastructure performance. It is assessed through a final 20,000 word submission.

Careers and your future

A project and infrastructure management degree from Brunel will equip you with the advanced knowledge and skills needed to deliver projects in the civil engineering and construction industry.

Many of our graduates go on to careers with contractors and consultants working as project managers on large infrastructure projects such as bridges, tall buildings, tunnels, flood and coastal defence schemes, transport, highways, water treatment and low-carbon power generation.

Some go on to jobs with public and private organisations or major firms of consulting engineers. Others specialise in construction, architecture, IT, manufacturing or retail.

A degree in project and infrastructure management will set you up with innovative and transferable knowledge and you will be ready to face the project and infrastructure management challenges of the modern world.
