The course places an emphasis on those key areas of modern management required by engineers entering their first management role, and also offers opportunities for technical advancement through a choice of elective modules in specialist areas of engineering.

Course modules

First semester (September to January) 

  • Critical Management in a Global Context – introduces you to the historical roots of management, organisation and innovation and provides a portfolio of ideas that will allow you to gaina deep insight into the theoretical underpinnings of management and organisations. This module will encourage you to think critically and independently about contemporary issues related to the management of organisations
  • Management of Information Systems – investigates the context, strategies and processes involved in managing information systems within an organisation. The module covers a wide range of topics, including the analysis of the systems used in organisations, procurement and implementation, strategies for evaluation of systems as well as analysis of value, benefit and purpose of information systems and risk management
  • Project Management – considers the scope and definition of a project, its significance as an instrument of change and the roles and responsibilities of people within it. Organisational issues are explored and a range of project management tools are critically evaluated for the execution, management and control of project management throughout all its phases. In order to develop an understanding of the skills, responsibilities and authority of project management personnel, you will work on a real-world scenario
  • Optional Module 1 – You will choose an elective module from a range of subject areas most aligned to your area of interest. Current options include modules in:
  • Electrical Engineering/Electronics
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Sustainability in the Business Context
  • Computer Networks and E-commerce Systems

 Second semester (February to May)

  • Low Impact Manufacturing – introduces you to the concept of an industrial system linking different types of industry, including raw material processing, manufacturing and waste processing, that combine to satisfy consumer demand. It explains the ways in which energy and resource use can be identified at each stage of a product lifecycle and how the associated environmental impacts can be identified and mitigated
  • People Management and Organisation – provides you with the skills to conduct and critically analyse organisational development, including its consequences on human resource management. Core approaches and tools are reviewed through the evolution of an organisation. The relevant theoretical principles and models of change management, human resources management and organisational behaviour are considered and applied in a practical management context using case studies and real life examples.
  • Research Methods – introduces the fundamental elements of research methods in an engineering context. The module will prepare you for the individual research project/dissertation through undertaking lectures, seminars and assignments that introduce and develop the concepts, organisational structure and deliverables of a research project
  • Optional Module 2 You will choose an elective module from a range of subject areas most aligned to your area of interest. Current options include modules in:
  • Electrical Engineering/Electronics
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Sustainability in the Business Context
  • Computer Networks and E-commerce Systems

Third semester (June to September)

Individual Project – You will undertake an individual project that will link your technical specialism with a core aspect of the course.

Optional placement

You will have the opportunity to undertake your individual project in industry, working alongside managers and engineers to solve real engineering management problems. 

Teaching 

Each module of the course is taught via lectures, tutorials, practical sessions and seminars. Teaching takes place in semesters of 15 weeks – the normal pattern will be 12 weeks of lectures and 3 weeks of revision examinations.

Taught modules are assessed either by coursework or by examination, or both. Assessment of the individual project will consider the management of the project, the written report and the formal presentation. 

Graduate Careers

Graduates of the programme are well-suited to either a management position within an engineering company, or a more technically intensive role in a business setting, contributing to leadership in innovation and operations, as well as helping set and implement strategic business decisions.
