About the programme

Getting things to happen how they should, when they should, and within budget is both a science and an art. On this programme, you’ll learn exactly how it’s done. The programme lasts two years and will empower you to meet the Association for Project Management (APM) framework and work towards project management chartership. Over the course of the programme you will be developed through placements on real projects, assignments, formal qualifications, and you will receive mentoring from some of the top project professionals in the engineering sector.
