As a construction project manager, you could work for consultancy practices, contractors, sub-contractors or other specialist companies in the supply chain.

You may be involved at the very earliest stages of construction projects, managing the development of project briefs and designs for clients. Alternatively, you could be working during the construction phase, or managing the substantive resources needed during occupation, maintenance, refurbishment and finally demolition and recycle. Or you could work as an independent project manager, perhaps building up your own consultancy practice.

The programme is also excellent preparation for doctoral-level study and a career in research and university lecturing.
