Program Description

MSc in Engineering Project Management

London South Bank University

MSc Engineering Project Management introduces you to the complete project management process; from developing a business case to planning, scheduling and evaluating project outputs. Engineering projects are becoming increasingly complex, being undertaken by multi-disciplinary teams who collaborate to achieve project goals and so often require dedicated and qualified project managers. Project management has become the strategic focus of all successful organizations, and project management skills are considered a valuable attribute by employers.

The course will cover all aspects of engineering project management and is, therefore, suitable for engineering graduates wishing to develop a career in project management and non-engineers who are expected to manage projects in technology or engineering-related sectors. Individual modules can also be taken by practitioners as part of their CPD.


Block delivery

This course is taught in block delivery, so you are able to work around existing work commitments. Each module is delivered over a three week period through lectures, tutorials, and practical workshops.
