A master’s in Construction Management will help you develop both your academic and technical knowledge, while giving you better insight into the industry. On our MSc Construction Project Management programme, you will also get a chance to hone the necessary soft skills to successfully lead and integrate multidisciplinary teams of professionals.
There has never been a better time to invest in your future, and the University of Bolton is a fantastic place for construction management retraining. Here are just a few reasons why retraining could be a great career move for you.
Right now, the UK’s construction pipeline is changing, with more opportunities rising across a number of hotspots outside of the capital. These include Scotland, the North West, North East, Yorkshire & Humber, The Midlands, and Wales. Candidates with a master’s in Construction Management will be in demand, with jobs available nationwide.
As a construction project manager, you can work in a number of settings, including for consultancy practices, as a self-employed contractor, or for other specialist companies within the supply chain. Some of our graduates also go onto pursuing careers in civil engineering, teaching and education, architectural technology, planning and development surveying, offshore and petrochemicals, town planning, and more.
If you plan to advance into further education at doctorate level, our master’s course is excellent preparation. You can also use this programme as a platform for a career in research or university lecturing.
Enrolling at the University of Bolton means accessing a fantastic community of industry professionals at various stages in their career. Many of our course tutors are actively involved in leading research as part of their own professional development, and joining our programme will give you great opportunities to network.
In addition to providing a friendly and supportive learning environment, we also rank in the Top 5 in the UK for Teaching Quality (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2020), and in the Top 50 UK Universities in The Guardian University League Tables 2021.
Students have even voted us No.1 in the North West for Student Satisfaction for the past three years (Complete University Guide in 2021, 2020 and 2019), so there’s nowhere better to study than the University of Bolton.
