The role of the engineer is changing and in an industrial company the engineer is likely to be the manager who has to implement new practices and technologies.
In this role you are likely to be the primary instigator of change in the organisation and for this you need specific skills and knowledge. It is important that you widen your knowledge and skills in management areas if you are to be and effective senior manager in a manufacturing industry.
This course complements your technical degree by completing your education in the wider areas of management that usually include subjects such as • finance • marketing • human resource management • lean operations • management strategy. It also enables you to progress quickly in your career – usually through fast track promotion into very senior management posts.
This course is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) on behalf of the Engineering Council and will meet, in part, the exemplifying academic benchmark requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Accredited MSc graduates who also have a BEng (Hons) accredited for CEng, will be able to show that they have satisfied the educational base for CEng registration. It should be noted that graduates from an accredited MSc programme, who do not also have an appropriately accredited Honours degree, will not be regarded as having the exemplifying qualifications for professional registration as a Chartered Engineer with the Engineering Council; and will need to have their first qualification individually assessed through the Individual Case Procedure if they wish to progress to CEng.
