IT Project Management
Skills and Training
The programme is designed for students with a degree in computer science and/or experience in software engineering who wish to develop their career further into project management while working in the IT industry. Graduates will be prepared for the challenges of their industrial career as software project managers.
Although the statistics on IT project success worldwide are more promising than a decade ago, there is still scope for further improvement. Appropriate project management and development processes can avoid some problems and capture others at an early stage, hence lead to higher success rates. Project management skills and qualifications are increasingly being recognised as key to the success of IT projects.
This new programme combines the specific technical content of the full-time taught MSc IT Project Management programme with the benefits of the work-based MSc Professional Engineering programme.
The programme is designed to equip its graduates with both generic project management and specific software project management skills, which is expected to lead to a career managing successful software projects with the potential to reach a leadership role.
Primarily, to enable participants to acquire the Masters level knowledge, understanding and skills required for full UK registration as a Chartered Engineer, whilst remaining in full time employment and studying through a suitable programme of work based learning.
Secondly, to provide a framework in which participants can plan and carry through a structured schedule of activities designed to permit acquisition and demonstration of the full range of competences required for Chartered Engineer registration.
The programme aims to support a wide range of IT specialisations and participant needs. The learning and assessment undertaken by each participant, and the associated learning outcomes, will be specified in an individually agreed learning contract based on the participant’s specialisation and previous experience. The learning contract will specify how the generic modules listed below are interpreted to suit the participant’s needs.
