You'll 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 be: a civil engineer, an architect, a planner, a manager, a lawyer, or an archaeologist
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.
Or you may be a recent graduate, for example with a BEng. This Master's gives you the opportunity to acquire a management 'bolt on' on top of your engineering degree.
WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?
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.
In your first semester you'll have the option to take a three-day study tour in London. You'll get an insight into how industrial companies work, who are always interested in Queen's graduates. Companies such as:
The McAvoy Group,
JA Rattigan and Son
Multiplex, who built Wembley Stadium. They value our students so much that they dedicated an entire day of the last study trip to addressing us, with every senior figure available to talk to us.
Applications for this course, received after 30th June may not be accepted. A deposit will be required to secure a place.
