Ryerson University launches new Project Management in the Built Environment Program
Ryerson University (renaming in process)’s department of Architectural Science has launched a Project Management in the Built Environment Program that prepares graduate students for the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry.
The interdisciplinary graduate program of project management in the built environment provides a master of applied science (MASc) degree or a master of project management (MPM) degree.
The MASc is best for students who want to focus on an in-depth study of a particular aspect of project management, whether theoretical or applied, which culminates in a traditional masters-level research thesis. MASc students do five courses in their first year and then focus on research, working closely with a faculty supervisor to complete their thesis. The MASc is a two-year, full-time program.
The MPM is best for students who are experienced practitioners seeking to upgrade their skills or for those who prefer coursework over research. MPM students take either ten courses or take eight courses and complete a major research project. The full-time program is designed to be completed in 12 months, but MPM students can take the program part-time over a period of two to five years.
“A master’s degree from this project management program will elevate the workforce by introducing experts who can deliver and execute complex projects. We could benefit from their unique combination of attributes as we move our growing portfolio of projects towards execution,” says Neil Vohrah MRAIC, Chief Operating Officer at TAS and Industry Advisory Panel member.
