Degree: Master of Science (two years) with a major in Industrial Engineering and Management
Teaching language: English

The Master’s programme Industrial engineering and management aims to give students with a solid base in engineering the tools needed to integrate engineering, economy and mathematics and prepare students for careers as managers and project leaders in the industry.

Building upon the students’ engineering background the programme provides knowledge in industrial management through a multi-disciplinary approach. It also increases their ability to adopt changes in the industrial environment in an efficient and responsible manner.

The first term consists of mandatory courses in Industrial project management, Corporate organization, Corporate finance, and Quality Management which puts the student’s engineering skills into the context of industrial management. The second and following terms, students choose to specialize themselves in the fields of Innovation Management, Operation Management, Finance or Quality Management.

The Operation Management profile teaches the skills needed to apply a holistic view of production and operations management issues in both manufacturing and service industries. This profile is mathematically intensive and utilizes quantitative methods to describe problems, analyze operations issues, and provide solutions for industries facing a dynamic, changing environment.

The Innovation Management profile focuses on developing and commercializing innovative products and new solutions. Central skills are technology and project management, product development and entrepreneurship.

The Finance profile deals with the theories and tools used in the financial markets such as financial instruments, asset pricing, risk management, portfolio evaluation and optimal asset management.

The Quality management profile provides knowledge on approaches for creating and sustaining an effective organisation. Quality management is a set of concepts and practices characterized by core principles such as customer focus, process management, continuous improvement, everyone’s participation, base decisions on fact and committed leadership. One of the central questions is how an organisation can improve its processes to provide maximum benefits to customers through the best use of available resources.

Employment and career opportunities

Following graduation students are prepared for interesting careers in cutting edge industries, for example as a R&D project leader in larger, technologically intensive companies or as a CTO at smaller companies or start-up. Students choosing to specialize themselves in finance may also find careers at larger financial institutions or companies with their own finance divisions.

FACILITIES, EQUIPMENT AND SUPPORT

Through consistent investment, we have built up an impressive infrastructure to support our students and researchers. The University of Surrey hosts Surrey Space Centre – a unique facility comprising academics and engineers from our own spin-out company, Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd.

Our mission control centre was designed and developed by students to support international CubeSat operations as part of the GENSO network, and it also supports the development of the University’s own educational satellites.

Our teaching laboratories provide ‘hands-on’ experience of satellite design and construction through the use of EyasSAT nano-satellite kits. They also house meteorological satellite receiving stations for the live reception of satellite weather images.

Elsewhere, our fully equipped RF lab has network analyser, signal and satellite link simulators. The Rohde and Schwartz Satellite Networking Laboratory includes DVBS2-RCS generation and measurement equipment, and roof-mounted antennas to communicating live with satellites.

A security test-bed also exists for satellite security evaluation. We have a full range of software support for assignments and project work, including Matlab, and you will be able to access system simulators already built in-house.

Satellite Communications Engineering students can also make use of SatNEX, a European Network of Excellence in satellite communications supported by ESA; a satellite platform exists to link the 22 partners around Europe. This is used for virtual meetings and to participate in lectures and seminars delivered by partners.

Our own spin-out company, Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd, is situated close by on the Surrey Research Park and provides ready access to satellite production and industrial facilities. In addition, we have a strategic relationship with EADS Airbus Europe-wide and several other major communications companies.

Surrey were the pioneers of sophisticated ‘micro-satellites’ in the 1980s.

Since then, our sustained programme of building complete satellites, performing mission planning, working with international launch agencies and providing in-orbit operations has kept us at the forefront of the space revolution –utilising new advances in technology to decrease the cost of space exploration.

PROGRAMME OVERVIEW

Our Masters in Space Engineering programme is designed to give you the specialist multidisciplinary knowledge and skills required for a career working with space technology and its applications.

Surrey students have access to all aspects of the design and delivery of spacecraft and payloads, and as a result are very attractive to employers in space-related industries.

As we develop and execute complete space missions, from initial concept to hardware design, manufacturing and testing, to in orbit operations (controlled by our ground station at the Surrey Space Centre), you will have the chance to be involved in, and gain experience of, real space missions.
