Applied project management

Our Applied Project Management course is designed specifically to allow individuals, through vocational pathway selection, to meet the complexities of contemporary project management within the global economy.

What's it about?

The course initialises through the more contemporary core project management modules but with emphasis on the applied aspects and then allows the student to select from one of the pathways of either Built Environment, Computing and Enterprise Management and then conclude the award through research and dissertation, all allowing for focus against the individual career aspirations.

With these advanced principles and techniques this will allow individuals to assume the role of project manager and/or become an effective member of project management teams by acquiring best practice competences and knowledge to manage people, resources, time line and risks to achieve a successful project outcome.

Who's it for?

Project management is the fastest growing globally with an ever increasing need for project management professionals. Students are drawn from a broad cross-section of academic backgrounds and locations with our aspirations being to teach project management to people from any discipline and to equip you with both intellectual and practical skills to build their future’s as a project management professional in virtually any field of work or location.

What will I learn?

The four core modules of Principles of Project Management, Project Teams, Project Strategies, and Project Finance and Marketing set the underpinning background to allow the student then build their career pathway. The student then chooses between one of the pathways which may see them doing either Commercial Management of Construction, Consultancy and Technological Innovation or Strategic Innovation Management plus the complementary associated module.

The final stage of the learning experience comes through the modules of Professional Enquiry Methods and Research in the Real World.

The key is that at every stage of the academic journey the student drives their career sector ambitions and if they elect to undertake work experience with us that should further aid that development for a successful future.
