Masters degrees in Integrated Engineering offer advanced study of the relationships between different branches of engineering, and how disciplines may combine to improve industrial practise.
Courses range from taught MSc degrees, to research-based MRes and MPhil programmes. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in an appropriate engineering discipline.
From Civil and Structural Engineering to Ergonomics, Chemical and Bioengineering, these courses explore the means through which these disciplines and others might be combined for various industrial purposes.
To achieve this, you will explore multi-disciplinary approaches to progress towards greater diversity and sophistication in the industry. This includes exploring methodologies in business practices, management and communications as well as traditional engineering.
Collaborative working, creativity and innovation are key components of these courses, and these skills will often be fleshed out through professional placements as part of your learning.
Careers in this field are highly varied. They could largely involve roles such as project management, financial planning, environmental sustainability or public policy.
Research is highly sought after in the field. As such, your Masters could provide a solid foundation for further research at PhD level.
