The Engineering with Management MSc course will equip you with practical and theoretical knowledge of modern engineering and manufacturing, alongside a grounding in management techniques and their application to the field of engineering. The course will prepare you for a career in the field of engineering at a managerial level.
Located in central London, giving access to major libraries and leading scientific societies including the Chartered Institute for IT (BCS), the Institution of Engineering and Technology and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE).
Opportunities to focus on topics such as intelligent systems, robotics and management skills while studying theoretical and practical electronic engineering and management topics.
Frequent access to speakers of international repute through seminars and external lectures, enabling you to keep abreast of emerging knowledge in electronic engineering and related fields.
The Department of Informatics has a reputation for delivering research-led teaching and project supervision from leading experts in their field.
The Engineering with Management MSc will prepare you for a management pathway in engineering. You will study key areas of operations and project management, which will equip you with the skills of how to use mathematical modelling and optimisation methods to solve a range of problems. You will also gain an understanding of project planning approaches, monitoring and operations strategy. There are also opportunities to explore a wide variety of optional modules allowing you the freedom to develop your study pathway to reflect your interests. You will complete the course in one year, studying September to September and taking a combination of required and optional modules totalling 180 credits, including 60 credits that will come from an individual project of 15000 words.
A graduate in engineering or a related scientific discipline, from this programme you will gain practical and theoretical knowledge of the engineering and informatics techniques currently used within industry. This will provide valuable preparation for careers in the field of engineering at a managerial level.
Course format and assessment
We use lectures, seminars and group tutorials to deliver most of the modules on the programme. You will also be expected to undertake a significant amount of independent study.
The primary method of assessment for this course is a combination of written examinations, essays, coursework and individual or group projects and oral presentations. The individual project will be assessed through a 15,000 word report.
Our graduates have continued on to pursue successful careers in manufacturing and engineering management.
