Course Summary

In this course you will learn to apply management methods to design, engineering and construction problems, and be able to be plan, monitor and control construction projects by integrating technical knowledge with leadership, commercial and managerial skills. You could have been in work for a while already: some of our previous students have been many years into their career when they join us. The course’s primary focus is on project management, which will give you the chance to take your career forward in any industry, not just in construction. We teach the principles of project management the distinct discipline of working to agreed deadlines, starts and finishes on a given project.

Students could be anywhere in the world as a project manager – any of the major design, projecting management or construction consultants. Countries such as India and Canada are investing heavily in their infrastructure – trillions of dollars in the next few years - and they need project managers like you to make it happen. Queen's postgraduates reap exceptional benefits. Unique initiatives, such as Degree Plus and Researcher Plus bolster our commitment to employability, while innovative leadership and executive programmes alongside sterling integration with business experts helps our students gain key leadership positions both nationally and internationally.
