Welcome message

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 Programme 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 Programme 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.

Purchase your Engineering safety equipment

You can purchase all of your Engineering safety equipment - lab coat, goggles, and shoes through our BCU online store at great prices.

It is important that you purchase these items before and during Welcome Week so that you can start practical activities in our workshops as soon as you arrive.

This year, all new first-year and foundation Engineering students will have colour-coded lab coats to represent the course you are studying, and these will be BCU branded and embroidered.

If you have already purchased a lab coat ready for Welcome Week (proof of purchase will be required), please contact the technical team at EBE_Technical_Services@bcu.ac.uk  and we can look into this on a case by case basis.

Welcome message

Welcome to BCU’s MSc Project Management course. This course resides in the Department of Engineering within the School of Engineering and the Built Environment (EBE). We wish you success in your study and hope you have a good experience here at Birmingham City University as well as a successful career following your graduation. Many of the tutors in the course have years of experience in both higher education and industry as well as academic qualifications, helping to support and guide you throughout your studies. Employability is a core theme throughout the course, and we strive to provide students with the skills and knowledge that industry demands to excel in project management positions. Moreover, career prospects are expected to keep pace with the rapid advances in project management methods and intelligent based technologies, hence, there is expected to be continuing demand for competent, versatile postgraduates who can design and implement innovative solutions for industry.

Our MSc course is accredited by the Association for Project Management (APM), which is a recognised professional body in the UK. The MSc in Project Management provides students with a deep understanding of both the technical and soft skills requirements necessary for the successful delivery of projects. This MSc is one of two MSc courses within the Engineering Management group of programmes. The other MSc course is MSc in Logistics and Supply Chain Management. Throughout your studies with us, you will develop creative thinking, leadership and management skills through teamwork, discussion, and peer review. You’ll develop new skills to an advanced level, becoming a highly skilled manager capable of administering major projects within and across different organisations. You will also gain a range of valuable transferrable skills, such as time management, organisation, problem solving and more.

The Professional Placement version of the course is optional and is offered as an alternative to the standard version of the course. This will allow you to complete a credit bearing, 20 week Professional Placement as an integral part of your Master’s Degree. The purpose of the Professional Placement is to improve your employability skills which will, through the placement experience, allow you to evidence your professional skills, attitudes and behaviours at the point of entry to the postgraduate job market.

You will study modules that develop essential project management techniques including principles of project management, international business and marketing, research methods, resource management, international operations and logistics, and procurement and contract law. A range of assessment methods are used with associated assessment criteria. Knowledge and skills are assessed, formatively and summatively, by a number of methods such as coursework, examinations, presentations, vivas, and so forth.

Although very rewarding, doing a Master’s degree is indeed a very challenging and demanding journey. But we are here to support you all the way. The course team and the University’s support services are here to help you make the most of your time at the University and to support you in achieving your full potential. For further detailed information about the University, life in Birmingham and the advice and support available to all students please go to our Student Info page.

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.

Welcome message

Welcome to MA Planning Built Environments! This course has been designed to equip you with the knowledge, skills and tools to start understanding and fitting the disparate pieces of the built and natural environment jigsaw together; improving the ways in which policy and decisions are made regarding all aspects of place-making. The course builds on applied academic research and contemporary planning practice, stressing the importance of both the process and outcomes of planning interventions that are made in the public interest.

The course uses real life assignments and learning; helping you to learn how to apply the principles you learn. The course design and delivery uses expertise across our sustainability, real estate and planning teams and external experts in planning research and practice to address key challenges and opportunities across the built (including historic) environments. Here natural, political and social sciences converge to equip you to understand the different opportunities and challenges when dealing with complex planning problems in city, urban fringe and rural domains. The combination of accelerated climate and environmental change, resource pressures and rapidly evolving social, legal and political contexts demand that the planner of the future is better equipped with the science, tools and skills to help shape the kind of high quality multi-functional places we increasingly need. This course is accredited by the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) and we are also seeking accreditation by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). It offers a clear pathway to RTPI chartered status and prepares you for a career as an interdisciplinary and challenge-focused professional. In order to provide this interdisciplinary education, the course follows a 3 x 3 x 3 model in terms of structure. Three modules are bespoke to planning; three modules are interdisciplinary and are shared with other built environment courses and three modules are specialised relating to the dissertation, allowing you to specialise in an area that most interests you.

You will be assigned a personal tutor when you start the course who will be your first port of call if you need help. You will have a dissertation supervisor assigned to you early on to begin supporting you with this challenging assignment. Each module assessment is made clear at the start of the module, and the module tutor will provide class time to discuss the assessment and provide guidance. You will need to work hard to excel on this challenging but rewarding course, but we do everything we can to support you to get on well with your learning and plan your time effectively.

We look forward to welcoming you onto the course!

Essential equipment

There is no specific essential equipment needed, but when we do make site visits (ie outside the classroom), stout footwear and clothing appropriate to the weather are recommended.

There is one excellent book that will help you throughout the course, although it is not a “set text” it would be helpful to have access to a copy: this is the 15th edition of Cullingworth et al (2015) Town and Country Planning in Britain.

What should I bring on my first day?

We look forward to welcoming you on your first day!

Welcome message

First and foremost, welcome to Birmingham City University, and to a unique opportunity that will place you at the front line of graduates, and provide you with an overarching set of skills and knowledge within digitalisation in the built environment.

As you all know, the last decade has witnessed a major technological transformation within the built environment sector both in the UK and worldwide. This transformation has impacted many of the traditional processes and practices across the whole life cycle of the built environment. The impact can be recognised through automated and lean processes as result of using different technologies, which ultimately have a direct influence on time, cost and quality within projects. Nowadays, there is an increasing shift toward integration of computing-related areas including Smart Systems (e.g. Internet of Things), Data Analytics, Machine Learning and Cloud Computing to overcome complex issues. Despite this continually rapid transformation, the built environment industry is becoming aware of many new skill sets and digital competencies to overcome issues, and more importantly, advance the built environment industry.

The MSc Digital Construction is built on 5 main areas of knowledge: Digital Transformation, Integrated Processes, Innovation, Smart Production and Decision-making. So brace yourself for an exciting and unique journey with this course, which will prepare you to become as one of the digital pioneers in the industry.
