Develop your advanced technical and problem solving skills whilst exploring best practice, leading-edge technologies, processes and systems in engineering and management. This course is ideal if you are considering moving into a team or project leader role.

Erasmus funding may be available to support costs for overseas study.

  • Enhance your employability — achieving higher-level technical knowledge and personal skills.
  • Learn to apply theories, concepts and knowledge to real-life situations or case studies.
  • Study a course that meets the Engineering Council’s UK-SPEC requirements for further learning.
  • Meet the academic requirements for Chartered Engineering (CEng) status.
  • Qualify on a course accredited by the IMechE, the IET and the IOM3.

How you learn

You will study a combination of management-related and technical modules. We offer a wide range of elective modules, which you can tailor to your own continuing professional development.

The course is therefore very flexible — it allows you to delve deeper into your own interests and career aspirations, and gain the skills that employers are looking for.

You learn through:

  • laboratory sessions
  • critical reflection
  • lectures
  • seminars
  • tutorials
  • coursework
  • assessments
  • multidisciplinary teamwork

Applied learning

We encourage you to learn through the application of theories, concepts and knowledge to real-life situations (such as your own organisation or in the international product development module), or by using case studies.

Our part time students can find that their masters projects are typically of significant importance to their companies and can raise their profile in the organisation.

We run a range of competitions throughout the year.

You can design, build and fly a remote-controlled aircraft as part of the Unmanned Aircraft Systems Challenge.

There is also an opportunity to build and race a car as part of the Formula Student competition. This year our SHURacing team came 23rd in the final of the competition at Silverstone.

Future careers

This course prepares you for a career as a

  • technical specialist
  • technical manager


This course is accredited by the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3), on behalf of the Engineering Council, for the purposes of partly meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer; graduates who have a BEng (Hons) accredited for CEng will be able to show that they have satisfied the further learning requirement for CEng accreditation.

This course is also accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) on behalf of the Engineering Council and will meet, in part, the exemplifying academic benchmark requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Accredited MSc graduates who also have a BEng (Hons) accredited for CEng, will be able to show that they have satisfied the educational base for CEng registration. It should be noted that graduates from an accredited MSc programme, who do not also have an appropriately accredited Honours degree, will not be regarded as having the exemplifying qualifications for professional registration as a Chartered Engineer with the Engineering Council; and will need to have their first qualification individually assessed through the Individual Case Procedure if they wish to progress to CEng.

Accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) on behalf of the Engineering Council as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Candidates must hold a CEng accredited BEng/BSc (Hons) undergraduate first degree to comply with full CEng registration requirements.
