Welcome to the MSc Mechanical Engineering with professional placement at Birmingham City University. Your programme is part of the Engineering Department within the School of Engineering and the Built Environment (EBE). We hope that you will have a challenging, stimulating and enjoyable time studying with us this academic year leading to successful and fruitful results.

Mechanical Engineering offers an exciting programme of study which is critical, challenging and forward-looking. The programme also seeks to promote excellent reputation within industry for providing the appropriate knowledge and skills to match its needs. Our vision for Mechanical Engineering has been focussed by the determination to strike an equitable balance between the technological aspects, the principle skills and techniques necessary for a successful career within your discipline, and the demands of employers and professional bodies for this discipline-specific programme.

Mechanical Engineering is taught by active researchers and practitioners who ensure that your curriculum is innovative in terms of content, assessment and delivery. A particular characteristic of Mechanical Engineering is its established tradition of research-informed teaching. Mechanical Engineering has also been designed in alignment with appropriate professional accreditation requirements and seamless progression themes that reflect the Quality Assurance Agency Subject Benchmark Statements and the Programme Learning Outcomes. Consistent to the academic requirements, the learning experience of the programme reflects the nature of your career discipline, both in its content and skills provision. This culminates in the use of real life projects (particularly in relation to project modules), case studies, scenarios and laboratory sessions in addition to the appropriate theoretical principles and analytical tools. Your Course Leader has overall responsibility for ensuring that quality and standards are maintained for the delivery of your programme. Module leaders will look after your interests at the modular level. They report to the Course Leader and oversee the teaching of the module for which they have responsibility. They devise the teaching programme, produce module handbooks and contribute to Annual Monitoring. Technical advisers and Support Technicians have a wide range and depth of vocational knowledge and experience and will support you when appropriate.

You will be given every opportunity to discuss the programme with the programme and module leaders, and the teaching team are prepared to give assistance to you as necessary. The teaching team has an excellent reputation with existing students in terms of communication and availability. You are able to contact members of the teaching team throughout your study on the programme.

In terms of formal opportunities for offering your feedback, there will be student representation from the Mechanical Engineering at the appropriate programme committee. Your feedback will also take place through using standard Module and Programme Evaluation Questionnaires. This feedback is analysed in team meetings and responses are fed into Annual Monitoring and back to you at the appropriate committee.

In this Programme Handbook, we hope to give you all the essential information you will need in order to successfully complete your qualification. This handbook should be read in conjunction with individual module handbooks and guides, learning resources found on Course Resources and website information.

In addition to the help, information and advice available in this Programme Handbook, each module has its own handbook. Module Handbooks should normally include:

  • Details of module content, including a week-by-week schedule of sessions
  • An outline of teaching and learning methods
  • An explanation of the assessment process and assessment criteria
  • Health and safety information.
  • A bibliography and list of relevant non-book resources

As part of the Quality Assurance arrangements for your programme, your work is firstly internally moderated and then externally moderated by an External Examiner to ensure that the standards of your programme are comparable with other Universities in this country.

Welcome message

Welcome to our MSc Construction Project Management course! We are very honoured to be your choice of postgraduate study.

Our students in this course come from various background. You may come from different disciplines of construction industry such as civil engineering, architecture, quantity surveying, real estate and construction management. Some of you have years’ construction working experience and know the industry inside out while some of you may just came out of your undergraduate study. And you may come from overseas with very different culture, tradition and religion. But you have the same aspiration, that is to become a competent construction project manager and have a long-lasting career in the construction industry. The diversity of our students on this course will enrich your learning experience tremendously by sharing ideas and experience.

Doing a postgraduate study is indeed a very challenging and demanding journey. But we are here to support you all the way through. By the end of this course, we hope you find this journey is also very rewarding. You will not only learn knowledge about construction project management to become a competent practitioner, but more importantly, develop your intellectual capability to become a reflective, life-long learner with critical thinking so you can continuously develop your career in whatever the direction you choose. When reflecting on the experience on this course, a previous graduate who successfully completed the course with Distinction said that this course had changed his way of thinking and how he viewed the construction industry and its practice. This is the biggest compliment we could wish for, and we hope we can achieve the same with you this time.

Besides the hard work, we also hope you can enjoy your time with us. As the 2nd city of Britain, Birmingham has a lot to offer due to its rich history and diverse culture. You may also make some life-long friends on this course.

On behalf of the course team, welcome on board! We are looking forward to working with you and helping you to achieve your goals.
