About Master of Design Administration (MDA) at Cardiff University

The aim of this programme is to provide students with in-depth knowledge and understanding of the management and legal aspects of design, and the skills necessary to successfully administer the procurement of design services and building projects.

The Master of Design Administration (MDA) aims to equip graduates with the expertise necessary for the successful administration and management of the design process in the procurement of buildings, from inception to occupation. It is intended to fulfil the growing need for experts in design management, working within consultancies, or in contracting or specialist contractor firms, or in client bodies.

The programme combines management and legal aspects of procurement, with a unique focus on design aspects, addressing current topics of key interest to construction professionals.

It is taught through blended learning (a combination of distance learning methods and on-site courses) and is undertaken while you are working in practice. A wide range of distance learning teaching methods are used; including webinars and online, a programme blog and discussion boards. Course material will be available in the form of detailed course notes, wikis, and pre-recorded video presentations. You will be supported by regular online tutorials and provided with detailed feedback on all course assignments.

The distance learning element is normally supplemented by on-site courses of two to four days, although for 20/21 is it anticipated that these will be run on-line. They will include advanced seminars given by leading experts. These will normally be interactive and involve group workshops, which are designed to encourage you to share experience and knowledge gained in practice.

This programme is taught by well-known experts and maintains strong links with industry, which ensures that the course encompasses current topics of direct relevance to those involved in procuring construction projects, and managing the design process.

The MDA is intended for those who have a degree in a design, construction or building management field, for example architects, engineers, contractors and client representatives. All those registered on the course would normally be in employment, with several years’ experience, but may be looking for promotion to a more senior design management position, or perhaps to set up their own firm.
