From an early stage in their career, engineers need to manage project progress and finances in professional environments. Projects can become increasingly complex, often involving overseas collaboration.
Our course is for you if you’re a new or practising engineer, and interested in a career in engineering management. We combine advanced topics in business, management and finance with further study in specialist engineering topics.
You will benefit from: -Company visits -Simulations -Case studies -A guest lecture series featuring international speakers and industry leaders
How will I study?
Depending on your qualifications, you follow one of three engineering pathways: -Advanced Engineering pathway -Advanced Mechanical Engineering pathway -Communications pathway
You take taught modules in the autumn and spring terms, with examination periods in January and May. The project is started in the spring term and continued in summer.
There are core modules in business and management. You choose options depending on your pathway. You are assessed through reports, essays and unseen examinations.
On our Masters courses, you’ll complete a substantial MSc project, which is often practical as well as theoretical. The project is designed for you to excel in your personal and professional development and to consolidate the material covered in your modules.
It demands individual responsibility and exposes you to issues of: -Project management -Resourcing -Planning -Scheduling -Documentation and communication -Critical awareness and creative thinking
In Engineering and Design, project assessment can include interim reports, presentations and a dissertation. Some projects are undertaken in groups and replicate the type of professional teamwork expected in industry. Topics are generated from the academic research and industrial collaborations in our Department, and a member of faculty supervises the project.
Our aim is to ensure that every student who wants to study with us is able to despite financial barriers, so that we continue to attract talented and unique individuals.
