This course is taught by industrial practitioners, bringing real world experiences into the classroom.
The course's primary focus is on project management using the building information modelling process. This will give you the chance to take your career forward - from a management viewpoint, not just in construction, but in other sectors as well. We teach the principles of project management, while using building information modelling.
You'll be in a class of around 50 if you're a full-time student, alongside people from places like India, China, Vietnam and Egypt. Our teaching starts in the afternoon as we know some of you will need to take time off work to attend classes. You'll have the beautiful new Graduate School at your disposal as well as the facilities within the School.
What You'll Get Up To
The course is all about balancing theory and practice. As part of your studies, you'll hear from practitioners as well as academics. You will have the option to take a three-day study tour in London and a 10 day study tour to Toronto, Canada. You'll get an insight into how industrial companies work, and a foot in the door with those companies, who are always interested in Queen's graduates.
