RES 500 Dissertation
Department: Portfolio of Master Programmes in Project Management
Module Description: The aim of the dissertation is to develop the ability to conduct a substantial piece of research work in a specific area of project management and report on this work in the form of a Dissertation. Depending on the subject chosen, this work can be desk top based, experimental in nature, or can involve modelling and simulation, or can be a combination of all. This will offer an opportunity for students to focus in depth on one aspect of PM, which will normally be directly relevant to a real life workplace situation, and to allow them to demonstrate their independent research skills to the course assessors. The dissertation is supervised individually and assessed on the basis of a final report between 20,000 to 40,000 words.
