Construction Project Management
Loughborough University of Technology
Key Course Facts
Loughborough has been teaching construction at postgraduate level longer than any other university in the UK. The Construction Project Management MSc programme delivers core technical project management expertise while providing a holistic perspective of the construction project processes and the challenge of project management in complex building and infrastructure projects.
Competency in project management has become a crucial skill set of all construction professionals and executives, with many construction project managers functioning in a strategic and coordinating role in the delivery of the client’s physical development and investment programme. This MSc is designed to further develop these competencies and advance your career within the construction industry.
Our Construction Project Management MSc programme focuses on developing core project management knowledge and experience. It shares the same set of core semester one modules as its sister MSc programme in Construction Management, but it includes three compulsory modules in core project management topics in semester two, leaving a fourth slot for an optional module in a more business-oriented topic.
The School of Architecture, Building and Civil Engineering is one of four Royal Academy of Engineering Centres of Excellence in Sustainable Building Design, and one of the most highly funded built environment groups by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). The School hosts the National Facility for Infrastructure Construction (N-FIC), funded by the UK Collaboratorium for Research in Infrastructure & Cities (UKCRIC). We also house Building and Industrial Services Pipework Academy (BISPA), which is a collaboration with global steel manufacturer Tata Steel and the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE). This uniquely holistic view of construction makes it best placed for developing graduates that meet the increasing demands of the sector.
We have recently invested £6 million in building expansion and development, which includes new dedicated study areas and computer resources. Our students benefit from access to our excellent facilities, including our 3,000m2 laboratory and one of the fastest high-performance computing clusters in the UK.
