Subject

Project management

The BSc (Hons) Civil Engineering Project Management provides an opportunity for learners to develop technical, professional and personal skills to meet the needs of the civil engineering industry. The programme is employer responsive and reflective of current practices in civil engineering so graduates can make an immediate contribution in the workplace. Following discussions with local employers, the programme team reviewed the proposed technical content to include hydrology and highways. The Project Management module has been designed to reflect the needs of a civil engineer employed in a management role.

The award meets the needs of a wide range of professional practitioners in the civil engineering field. These include site engineering managers, transport engineering design managers, civil engineering design managers, structural engineering design managers and managers in transport, water and the environment. The programme also offers a route to others wishing to further their careers and/or educational development in civil engineering and project management.

The modules have been designed to complement each other, to deepen the students’ knowledge and to enhance their employment opportunities in many sectors of the civil engineering industry. The use of live case studies as part of the assessment process ensures currency of practice.

The programme team has excellent links with local and national industry, including the different professions within the industry. This facilitates work experience for full-time students, site visits for students and guest speakers with specific subject expertise.

Students will be advised to join the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) as a student member.

Modules

The BSc (Hons) Civil Engineering Project Management programme structure is a blend of semesterised and year-long modules. The modules are sequenced to provide students with a coherent learning experience which will satisfy the programme aims and outcomes. The structure will also ensure a practicable, even spread of assessments throughout the academic year.

Modules studied: Project Management in Practice; Further Geotechnical and Structural Engineering; Advanced Civil Engineering
Technology and Materials; Engineering Hydrology and Environmental Studies; Research Methods; Dissertation.

The programme will utilise a range of teaching and learning methods that will enable the development of knowledge and understanding, professional and practical skills, and transferable skills including: lectures and guest lectures; tutorials; seminars and workshops; site visits; case studies; and research projects.

Whilst there are significant opportunities to spend time with the tutors during timetabled classes and tutorials, there is an expectation that students devote an appropriate amount of time to personal academic study and research. During the early stages of studies, guidance will be provided on how students can make the best use of their personal study time and how they should employ appropriate research methods. However as students progress through the programme, this guidance will become less structured and prescriptive.

Lectures will play an important part throughout the programme and will feature in all modules with the exception of Dissertation. The lectures involve the dissemination of theoretical and empirical information by lecturers and provide a basic framework of core themes, concepts, theories and principles that students can build upon through their reading and other classroom activities and through tutor prepared on-line learning materials. Guest lectures by specialists from industry, the professional bodies and other academic institutions enhance the learning experience.

Assessment methods

The assessment strategy for the programme will test subject knowledge, independent thought and skills acquisition and is designed to ensure that students achieve the overall aims and learning outcomes of the programme, as well as the learning outcomes for individual modules.

Assessment will take the form of time constrained examinations and assessment pieces, reports, presentations, analytical or design assignments, research assignments, case-studies, personal development plans and a final Dissertation.

Assessment is centred on the practical and professional skills required by industry. Consequently, assessment focuses on the implementation of practical solutions to specified problems. Assignment briefs use an appropriate scenario that reflects the professional and technical skills required by industry and group work is used to promote transferable skills in appropriate modules. Communication skills are developed through a range of delivery methods including presentation, reports and discussion.

The assessment strategy has been designed to be robust, equitable and manageable. The particular assessment strategies used in each module have been selected to match the relevant learning outcomes. The distribution of learning outcomes has been considered to ensure all the programme outcomes are assessed. A variety of assessment tools have been used to ensure the assessment strategy harnesses all students’ preferred assessment methods.

Assessment tools: formative assessment with constructive feedback; written reports; problem-solving exercises; critical analysis of case-studies; oral presentations; group work.

At the start of each academic year, students will be provided with an assessment schedule, illustrating details of the submission deadlines for summative assessments.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
