The Master's in Strategic Leadership towards Sustainability (MSLS) Programme is a 10-month transformational masters programme in Karlskrona, Sweden that focuses on advancing students' knowledge, skills, and global networks, in order to build their capacity to be a strategic leader in the co-creation of thriving, sustainable societies.
Global society's current path is unsustainable. At the same time, exciting possibilities for new ways forward are emerging - ways that bring human activity into harmony with the greater social and ecological systems that support us, while building better lives for all. How do we change course, to create this better future?
We become the leaders and change agents the world needs. We learn to understand our complex world better and to collaborate more strategically and systemically across borders, sectors and disciplines. We transform the ways we think, plan, make, act and lead, in order to ‘co-create’ a vibrant, sustainable future.
Join us in a stimulating, multicultural and multidisciplinary setting to earn your Master's in Strategic Leadership towards Sustainability (MSLS). Strengthen and develop your personal and professional leadership capacities to navigate the complex sustainability challenge:
• Learn about science- and experience-based methodologies for leading the transition towards sustainability.
• Together with a highly diverse group of peers, practise your skills at effectively combining and using these collaborative, solutions-focused methodologies.
• Be welcomed into a supportive, global community of strategic leaders and change agents working across a broad variety of sectors.
• Strategic Sustainable Development (SSD)
• Leading in Complexity (LiC)
Over the course of 10 months, students move through a spiral learning process focused on developing both theoretical understanding and practical experience of using SSD and LiC methodologies to enable and engage individuals, organizations, and institutions to take tangible steps towards sustainability.

It is a well-known fact that engineers and technical graduates have the potential to reach the very pinnacle of management and leadership within business and industry.
The MSc in Engineering Leadership and Management programme, through consultation with business and industry (both large and small), is set to establish the key graduate skills and attributes required to succeed in a management and/or leadership role in the engineering sector.
The content of this multidisciplinary engineering management course will be very much informed by industry. Key modules on the Engineering Leadership and Management programme will deliver a broad introduction to management, alongside detailed engineering specific modules on:
- Project Management
- Health & Safety
- Operations Management
- Asset Management
The Engineering Leadership and Management programme will incorporate traditional classroom teaching, online learning, interactive workshops and seminars. Multidisciplinary group work will be a key component of the course, along with industry-focused projects. All of the modules on the Engineering Leadership and Management course will be delivered on an “intense” basis, i.e. in isolation over 2-week periods.
Accreditation for the MSc in Engineering Leadership and Management will be sought with key Engineering and other relevant professional bodies.
As a student on the Master’s course in Engineering and Leadership Management, you will gain and build upon the key skills and knowledge required for a management and/or leadership role in the engineering sector.
The new home of the Engineering Leadership and Management programme is at the innovative Bay Campus provides some of the best university facilities in the UK, in an outstanding location.

This venture supports a wide ranging research portfolio with a rolling value of £6.5 million per annum addressing longer term materials issues.
Over £1m funding has been received from Airbus and the Welsh Government in the last three years to support structural composites research and development in the aerospace industry and to support composites activity across Wales.
Funding of over £6 million to continue our very successful postgraduate programmes with Tata Steel.
Other companies sponsoring research projects include Akzo Nobel, Axion Recycling, BAE Systems, Bayer, Cognet, Ford, HBM nCode, Jaguar Land Rover, Novelis, QinetiQ, RWE Innogy, Timet, TWI (Wales), as well as many smaller companies across the UK.
These industrial research links provide excellent opportunities for great research and employment opportunities.
The Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 ranks Engineering at Swansea as 10th in the UK for the combined score in research quality across the Engineering disciplines.
The REF assesses the quality of research in the UK Higher Education sector, assuring us of the standards we strive for.
The REF shows that 94% of research produced by our academic staff is of World-Leading (4*) or Internationally Excellent (3*) quality. This has increased from 73% in the 2008 RAE.
Research pioneered at the College of Engineering harnesses the expertise of academic staff within the department. This ground-breaking multidisciplinary research informs our world-class teaching with several of our staff leaders in their fields.
