Course Summary

The course seeks to prepare you to effectively manage projects and the budgets surrounding the development of the built environment. Encompassing physical, legal, economic and technological factors, you should gain an advanced understanding and knowledge of the theory and practice of procurement, construction economics, cost management and best practice project management within the specific context of the construction industry. Accredited by both the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), this practice-led Master’s has been developed in response to the rapid cultural changes within the global construction industry. It recognises the growing demand for professionals to stay abreast of new, innovative and non-adversarial approaches to project management, able to address internal constraints and dynamic external situations.

Our aim is to develop high-level knowledge, wide-ranging understanding and professional skills in both the theoretical and practical aspects of strategic management in the construction industry. We will study the economics behind construction, examining the regulatory and legal framework within which the industry operates, as well as health and safety in the construction workplace. We will also cover the corporate management processes used within the construction industry, such as procurement systems and standard forms of construction contracts. This degree helps prepare you for a career as a chartered surveyor or project management surveyor. The complexity and scale of modern construction projects requires construction professionals with expertise in construction management, who can work either on site or within an office to ensure they are delivered safely, within budget, on deadline and to the highest possible quality.
