PGCertPostgraduate Certificate Construction Project Management

Why choose this course?

This postgraduate certificate is the initiator and comprises 60 credits of study towards the MSc Construction Project Management course. I will introduce learners to the growing need within the built environment sector for professionals with a thorough understanding of the management of the construction process from inception to completion. As a student you will experience structured learning with problem-based scenarios and research that will develop your capabilities for critical thinking, argument, creativity and encourage innovation, all of which may be brought into the practical decision making processes encountered in built environment projects.

This course will introduce you the art and science of construction project management covering areas that may include strategy, control, technical, commercial, legal, financial and organisational issues. You will begin to reflect on and make cases for the integration of the technical (hard) and social (soft) management styles required within the context of strategic and operational construction projects.

The modules that may be included in this flexible course can enable progression to qualification at post graduate diploma and masters levels on successful completion of a requisite number of modules and credits. Individual modules may also be used as part of Continuous Professional Development courses offered by the University.

Why Wolverhampton?

You will be exposed to construction project management at a strategic and operational level.

This course will apply a balanced hand to the art and science of project management dealing with both the technical and the softer people related attributes of effective construction project managers.

We are currently developing the Springfield Campus which will be Europe’s largest construction centre of excellence. Join us as the exciting development takes shape and from 2019/20 students in the School of Architecture and the Built environment will be taught from the new campus.
