This is a one-year postgraduate course designed to provide engineers and other suitably qualified graduates with a good appreciation and understanding of project management techniques and practice in civil engineering and construction. Since much of this course is generic, it is also suitable for those involved in managing projects in other areas, for example, in manufacturing and information technology. This course has been approved by Engineers Ireland as meeting its requirements for continuing professional development.
Lectures are normally held on Friday evenings and Saturday mornings each week throughout the academic year. Coursework involves carrying out an individual research project in one's own time and also using project management software provide by the college.

The award of a Postgraduate Diploma in Project Management is based on a combination of the results of two examination papers and two coursework assignments. Each paper and the coursework constitute one third of the overall assessment. Students must pass each paper and the coursework; there is no system of compensation. The pass mark for the examination papers and the coursework is 40%. A Distinction is awarded to those who obtain an overall average mark of 70% or more in both the coursework and two papers combined at the summer examination. The Diploma awarding ceremony takes place in January.
Extensive notes are provided by individual lecturers, who may also recommend texts.
Designed to provide engineers and other suitably qualified graduates with a good appreciation and understanding of project management techniques and practice in civil engineering and construction, this course allows graduates to increase their employability and apply the ideas and methods to which they have been introduced in their own work.
