About this course
Are you keen to develop your existing engineering skills and knowledge to master’s level?
The MSc Engineering Management course has been specifically designed to allow you to update, extend and deepen your understanding of engineering and management.
You will build on your current knowledge of subjects such as solid modelling and prototyping, computer aided design and engineering data analysis, whilst developing management and entrepreneurial skills that will enhance your career opportunities within engineering and the broader business environment.
In the second year, for one semester, you’ll undertake an internship, study in another country or join a research group. This valuable experience will enhance your employability and further develop your theoretical and practical skills.
This option offers the opportunity to spend three months working full-time in one of the many companies/industries with which we have close links. You may be able to extend this over more than one semester in cases where it is adjacent to a vacation period. We will endeavour to help those who prefer this option to find and secure a suitable position but ultimately we are in the hands of the employers who are free to decide who they take into their organisation.
If you take this option, you will be assigned to our Engineering, Physics and Materials Research Group. There is every possibility that you may contribute to published research and therefore you may be named as part of the research team, which would be a great start to a research career.
We have exchange agreements with universities all over the world, including partners in Europe, Asia, the Americas and Oceania. If you take the Study Abroad option you will spend a semester at one of these partners, continuing your studies in English but in a new cultural and learning environment. Please note that this option may require you to obtain a visa for study in the other country.
With the increasing complexity of the engineering sector there is a requirement for engineering managers to be specialised not just in engineering, but also in wider business and management. This course has been specifically designed to meet the demands of today’s employers and provide a solid foundation for you to progress to management level.
Northumbria has a long and successful history of professional accreditation for its courses. However we continually review and improve our course content and delivery, and continued accreditation is subject to approval of those improvements by the relevant accrediting body. We anticipate that this course will be fully re-accredited by September 2016.
