Our MSc Construction Management enjoys a great heritage, being the longest established in the UK and the second oldest in the world. Choosing Loughborough as your destination of study will mean you can draw on the wealth of experience and expertise acquired throughout the programme's long history.As construction projects become more socially and technically complex in a changing world dominated by a concern for sustainability, there has been a growing challenge to develop existing and new expertise in construction management. This programme is designed to develop your knowledge and skills in management, design, technology, sustainability, strategy and procurement, and to advance your career within the construction industry undergoing a digital transformation.Our Construction Management programme differs slightly in module selection from our other construction programmes. It shares the same set of core semester one modules but you are required to nurture a generalist outlook in semester two, selecting any two modules from a set of business-oriented modules and a further two from a set of project management-oriented modules. Therefore, this programme offers the most flexible module selection compared to our other construction programmes.The School of Architecture, Building and Civil Engineering aspires to be the world's leading integrated centre for built environment research and education. This uniquely holistic view of construction makes it best placed for developing graduates to meet the increasing demands of the sector.Our School is one of four Royal Academy of Engineering Centres of Excellence in Sustainable Building Design, and one of the six most highly funded EPSRC-funded groups working on built environment topics. We are also a corporate affiliate member of the Association of Project Management.We have recently invested £6 million in building expansion and development, which includes new dedicated study areas and computer resources. You will benefit from access to our excellent facilities, including our 3,000m2 laboratory and high performance computing cluster (one of the fastest in the UK).
