Technology Project Management - MSc/PgD/PgC
Technological innovations are typically managed through the medium of a project. This programme enables a student to explore issues from conception of a technology via its implementation to eventual adoption.
The programme has nine core modules:
Four foundational 10 credit modules:
Technology Project Management
Technology Legal Issues
Team Software Development Project
Four specialist 20 credit modules:
End User Computing Risk Management
Project Management Theory and Practice
Project Management Case Studies
In addition, one 20 credit module, 'Research Methods for Technology Projects', is undertaken in preparation for the self-managed element.
120 credits from these may result in the award of PgD; 60 credits from these may result in the award of PgC. The MSc requires all nine modules and completion of a 40 credit dissertation
