Construction Project Management at Heriot-Watt University is one of the longest-running courses of its kind in the UK, equipping graduates with the theoretical knowledge and practical and technical skills to manage people and projects within the construction industry.
To enhance your career prospects and international experience, we are now offering our established and standard one year Construction Project Management Masters over two years through offering a ‘with Industry Placement’ alternative.
This ‘with Industry Placement’ option offers a practical experiential element over the traditional one-year degree structure, allowing you to reflect on theory and practice.
This degree is delivered by the Royal Academy of Engineering Centre of Excellence in Sustainable Building Design. One of only four Centres established at UK universities and the only one in Scotland, forming a national network to demonstrate and exchange best practice in teaching and research for the sustainable built environment.
This variant ‘with Industry Placement’ degree is offered over two years. The taught part of the programme is the same as its standard Construction Project Management Masters counterpart.
The Industry Placement is undertaken between the taught part of the programme and the research dissertation. If you cannot or decide not to do the placement option, then you will revert to the standard programme.
Although, the responsibility of finding a suitable placement lies with you, to support you, we are partnering with construction industry professionals and will provide advice on recruiters who offer placement opportunities. You will also have access to the University’s award winning Careers Service.
This programme is newly launched in May 2019. We are seeking accreditation.
