MSc Civil Engineering Project Management

Coventry University

The MSc Civil Engineering Project Management aims to help you establish or advance your career in the global construction industry. Designed with input from industry, the course teaches an innovative mix of technical and construction project management, applicable to civil engineering contexts.

  • The course takes a multidisciplinary approach, aiming to equip you with clear educational and technical knowledge of how advanced engineering planning, analysis and design, contract law, finance, procurement, and project management interrelate in the modern construction industry.
  • You will have the opportunity to learn the laboratory testing procedures and technics used to assess material and structural performance, using modern and upgraded loading equipment automated with data loggers, saturated and unsaturated stress path soil testing apparatus and commercial civil engineering material mixing and synthesising equipment.
  • The course culminates in a research project, during which you should be able to apply the theoretical and practical knowledge acquired so far from your academic training on real structural problems.

Work placement option

This master's programme provides you with the additional option2 to apply for a 'work placement' opportunity during your first semester with us for up to 12 months, extending the duration of your degree to 24 months.
