Course overview

This course will broaden the knowledge and experience of graduate and practicing engineers in engineering, technology and management. The successful integration and application of these elements will allow you to operate effectively in a wide range of engineering management roles and successfully deliver multi-million pound engineering projects.

The full potential of technological advances can only be fully realised if they are efficiently managed, using proven principles and methodologies. The focus of the programme is on equipping you to do this, within the context of today's engineering and manufacturing environment.

Supportive tutors will help you develop the ‘soft’ skills of working with others and leading projects. Examples include negotiation and collaboration, effective communication, handling conflict and politics and managing change.

Modules include ‘Engineering Operations Management’, ‘Project Risk and Quality Management’ and ‘Decision Support for Management’. Your Masters project will involve a real-world project that is supported by a sponsor. It will include both a research and a practical element and is an opportunity to impress not only your academic assessors but also potential employers.
