Course Summary

Many engineering projects are now undertaken by multidisciplinary teams who are responsible for the whole project life cycle in a multi-project or programme management environment. Typically, these projects are becoming increasingly complex. As a result, team members are expected to have a range of project management skills, including contractual knowledge, financial engineering competency and strategic awareness. This programme allows you to develop your knowledge of the entire project management process, from inception and feasibility, engineering, procurement and implementation through to commissioning and operation. Particular emphasis is placed on financial, planning and management aspects of the project life cycle, to equip you with the range of skills you’ll need to make a major contribution at every stage of a project.

Students wishing to acquire and further their knowledge regarding the management side of engineering projects will have an opportunity to do so via the Engineering Project Management MSc which focuses on the project life-cycle. Should further technical engineering and management expertise be sought then this option is also available through the International Construction Management and Engineering MSc which focuses on the whole-life cycle.

You’ll gain a thorough understanding of a range of topics affecting how construction and engineering projects are managed. In addition to the tools and techniques that are used by project managers, you’ll examine the issues and challenges they currently face and consider them in a “whole life project” context. You’ll look at topics such as project cash flow, risk management, project appraisals and stakeholder relationship management among many others. You’ll also focus on key topics such as project funding, especially for major infrastructure projects, as well as procurement management and supply chain issues. The process of value engineering, the concepts of value management and risk management will also be covered in depth.
