An exciting collaboration between the University’s Business School and School of Engineering, this course aims to give engineers a deeper understanding of business and management.
You will study a number of engineering and management units that will develop your business skills in an engineering context. The flexible nature of the course means you may select any advanced engineering units to study from a large suite of approved units.
The business theory covers the key components of business and management and gives engineers valuable knowledge and insights into how people and organisations behave, an understanding of the financial issues facing business and the know-how to improve management skills. You will carry out a research project which can be academic or industry-based.
