MSc / PG Dip / PG Cert Engineering Management


Course Description

This is part of a set of study options within the postgraduate Engineering Capability Development Framework (ECDF). The concept behind the Framework is to offer you flexibility in the modules you study, and the opportunity to move freely between award routes based on your career goals.

The MSc/PG Dip/PG Cert Engineering Management course is aimed at engineers who want to move into management while maintaining their competences in technical subjects. It can also help you develop a portfolio of evidence to support Chartered Engineer (CEng) registration, even if you don't have the academic qualifications normally required to study engineering management at Master's level.

Course detail

You'll normally have substantial experience in engineering, perhaps as an engineering undergraduate or as an apprentice with a Higher National Certificate (HNC), who has progressed to working at graduate level or equivalent.

The course has an 'advised route', but there is a wide range of optional modules available, and built-in flexibility to choose the topics most relevant to your career aspirations. Just talk to the Programme Leader about the modules that best match your goals. There is also flexibility in the learning format, with taught three to five-day blocks of lectures and workshops on campus, distance- learning, or work-based project options.

Structure

The full Master's course comprises 180 credits divided into three 60 credits stages: Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma, and Masters. Students work incrementally through the three stages and must pass all modules at each stage in order to progress to the next.

Modules

• Professional Development Appraisal and Continuous Review
• Advanced Manufacturing
• Engineering Project Management
• Technical Business Operations
• Leading Change
• Discrete Event Simulation
• Research Investigation and Methods for change
• Lean Engineering
• Engineering Project Management
• Dissertation

Format

The learning methods and the structure of the course mean you'll take an integrated view of an engineering enterprise by placing technology in strategic, financial, human and operational contexts. We encourage you to read about the subjects independently, to consolidate your knowledge and understanding and broaden your understanding of the key concepts.

Taught modules are usually held over three to five consecutive days, but can include distance learning and work-based learning in some cases. You'll organise your work-based learning with your module leader, this ensures it's tailored to your needs and the learning outcomes are achievable.

Assessment

Assessment is normally by assignment. At this level, we do not need to test your understanding, but rather your ability to implement your newfound skills and knowledge. Assignments will normally be around a real industrial case study, or a live project in your workplace.
