The Middlesex University MSc Project Management meets a specific skills gap in industry for engineers with project management skills who can lead on engineering projects in any sector. The degree gives you a fundamental understanding of advances in engineering and expands your knowledge of management.
The MSc Project Management is for graduates with some industrial understanding that wish to move into project management within the engineering industry. Project Management is the application of knowledge, skill, tools and techniques to the management of a unique engineering enterprise. The person with this role will create the ‘map’ to successfully achieve the goals of an engineering project. They are engineers who manage an engineering task but are not managers providing the technical control of a development process.
A project manager not only helps to reduce costs, but gives a project flexibility, and can assist with access to new technologies and developments. The course provides the latest experiences of current best practice with regard to human, financial and Total Quality Management (TQM) of an engineering enterprise.
Aims of the Programme
The aim of this programme is to equip graduates of an engineering discipline with specialist knowledge and skills in Project Management to allow them to effectively control engineering projects for global markets.
The MSc Project Management programme is normally studied over two years on part-time basis or one year on a full-time basis. The programme is divided into study units called modules. A module is a unit of study with credits according to the subject and nature of learning. Students on the MSc Project Management take 180 credits at level 4. Each module has a credit value of either 30 or 60 credits. Each 30 credit module represents approximately 300 hours of student learning, endeavour and assessment.
The list of modules along with the level, type and credit points are listed below.
- Engineering Project Management
- Human and Financial Management in Engineering
- Engineering Simulation
- Engineering Innovation
- Engineering Group Project
Graduates from the programme will be expected to enter into engineering management with highly specialised operational skills that are much sought after qualities worldwide. The programme content will be enriched by providing industry engagement opportunities to students through industry speakers and field trips. This will also help inform students about the current opportunities and future trends in their relevant employment sector.
Links with the employment market through work placement provision; visiting speakers from relevant sections of the industry; staff with ongoing practical and professional experience all help students in furthering their career goals. Middlesex has strong links with regional employers. Our industry partners offer internships and placement opportunities, give visiting lectures, and field visits and attend our Careers Day each year.
Our Careers and Employability Service offers students a range of support both while they are studying with us – and after they have graduated.Updated on 08 November, 2015
About Middlesex University Dubai
About the University
Middlesex University Dubai is the first overseas campus of the internationally renowned Middlesex University in London. The campus which opened in January 2005, has over 2,800 students from over 90 nationalities and offers undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in a wide variety of subject areas. The origins of Middlesex University date back to 1878 and it is one of only a handful UK universities to have been awarded three Queen's anniversary prizes
Quality and Recognition
Middlesex University’s quality credentials are outstanding. Middlesex University is audited by the UK’s Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) for Higher Education and the Dubai campus is an integral part of this audit process. Our Dubai campus is subject to the same rigorous quality assurance procedures that have earned Middlesex University the highest possible endorsement from the QAA.
Middlesex University Dubai is also licensed by the Dubai government’s Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA). Furthermore, the University Quality Assurance International Board at KHDA reviews all programmes on offer in Dubai to ensure that the quality of programmes taught in Dubai are equivalent to those at the home campus in London.
Academic programmes in Dubai have the same validation and monitoring system as in London, with the same examinations taken simultaneously in both cities. The Honours and Masters degrees awarded to Dubai campus students are therefore identical to those achieved by students at the London campuses, and students can transfer between campuses if they wish.
Whether in London or Dubai, Middlesex University students are prepared for a significant role in the global economy.See all Middlesex University Dubai courses
