Subjects included in the course syllabus include: VRM and the construction procurement process; introduction to value management; value engineering (function analysis and other VE tools); risk and uncertainty in the construction industry; Risk and procurement of PPP projects; risk management framework; sources, events and effects of project risk; tools and techniques of risk management; risk response and mitigation; client briefing.The aim of the course is to enable students to appreciate and make an intelligent contribution towards the managerial and financial aspects of construction companies in general and construction projects in particular.This includes developing awareness and understanding of the need for financial planning and monitoring and the cost control process.

As a result, our recent graduates have been employed by a range of both national and international employers.Our students are recruited mainly from the civil engineering profession and are typically looking to broaden their knowledge base, extend their technical expertise or gain further learning to meet the needs of the professional institutions.The course also aims to introduce the learner to the concepts underlying reinforced concrete design and the available assessment methods, to enable the learner to develop a deep understanding of the physical models and their assumptions (adopted for describing the mechanics underlying RC structural behaviour) that form the basis for the development of the available design/assessment methods.It also gives the learner the opportunity to apply different methods for developing design solutions for a range of RC structural configurations capable of safeguarding specific performance requirements set by the relevant standards/codes.Subjects covered in the course syllabus include: Construction project management concepts; standards and services; organisational structures for delivery of project management services; management strategies for clients and stakeholder briefing; issues related to management of construction project design process, and budget setting; tools/techniques for construction project planning and control of costs, time, risk and quality; issues relating to TQM and health and safety; teamwork and leadership roles.

The course aims to introduce the concepts of value and risk management, apply them to strategic and tactical problems and illustrate their tools and techniques through case studies.Modern civil engineering professionals often require an extensive understanding of construction management due to the strategic benefits it can bring to both individuals and project teams.As the industry becomes more competitive, organisations and their clients are increasingly demanding the combined time, cost and quality assurances that good project management practice provides.This course aims to provide a comprehensive description of the behaviour of structural concrete under different loading conditions based on the relevant published test data.It also aims to provide a comprehensive description of the mechanics underlying the response of reinforced concrete structural forms when subjected to different loading conditions based on the available test data and describe the different modes of failure exhibited.Applicants from other backgrounds planning to develop a career in civil engineering and construction management will also be considered.
