Course Summary

Project management is relevant to every department in an organisation, and there is increasing demand for experts to manage projects efficiently. The degree is designed by experienced industry practitioners and leading academics to provide you with a comprehensive insight into how projects are run and used across industries. There are two in demand specialisms available on this degree: Software Development and Sustainability.

Software development provides insight into the industry, as well as the knowledge and skills you need to work alongside developers and engineers in teams.

Sustainability equips you with the knowledge to tackle today’s pressing issues and an understanding of how to balance the environmental, social and economic aspects of projects.

By studying this degree, you will:

  • demonstrate a systematic understanding of the relevant business functions in the context of project management. e.g. finance, risk, sustainability, operations and quality control
  • gain an in-depth understanding of tools, concepts and theories relating to the chosen area of project management at an advanced level
  • develop the ability to critically analyse contrasting project management frameworks, methods and systems in relation to organisational culture, environmental factors and type/scale of projects
  • apply a range of project management frameworks in order to evaluate and solve complex project delivery problems and make informed decisions in challenging situations
  • enhance your skillset with modules specialising in either software development or sustainability.


This module will provide the fundamental elements needed to help you develop your analytical and technical research skills.
