Poster on Employability skills scholarship project on M815 Project Management students.

M815 is a 30-credit postgraduate module, accredited by the APM (Association for Project Management). It is part of MSc Computing and an option within MScs in Technology Management, Environmental Management, Engineering, Systems Thinking in Practice or Space Science and Open MSc/MA.
M815 students may be aspiring project managers or seeking to improve their knowledge of project management whilst working on projects. Employability is a focus for this module, with explanations of how assessment relates to employability included in the assessment since 18E and the module guide since 19E.
The project output will support employability skills development in future presentations of M815. Through the Postgraduate Computing Qualification Lead and the C&C Employability Lead the project will inform other modules and qualifications of our findings aiming to enhance employability skills, and student awareness of these skills.
