Innovation & Technology Management (MSc)


Course Description

The Bath MSc in Innovation and Technology Management is designed for engineering, science and management graduates who are looking to develop an in-depth understanding of innovation and technology management concepts and methods, and the skills to apply these in real life. It is delivered jointly by two of the University's top ranked departments- the School of Management and the Department of Mechanical Engineering.

Whilst other programmes explore the management of technology from either a technical or management perspective, our MSc is unique through its combination of management and engineering, integrating the two disciplines to ensure you have the necessary skills to manage across boundaries.

Owen Nicholson

701.jpg After working for two years, I was looking to focus my career within technology management. I hope by obtaining this more specialised qualification I will gain the skills to work effectively within this area.

I have always had a passion for technology and knew this was an area I wanted to concentrate on. Within the Ministry of Defence there are many opportunities to work with new and exciting technology, but the best positions are always very highly contested. The skills I will learn through this MSc will allow me to offer not just technical management, but the ability to work creatively and understand how to make innovation implementable. The specific nature of the course will mean that my applications will have something different and hopefully stand out from others.

So far the course has been extremely interesting and extremely applicable to my current and future work and I see it will be of great help to my future career.
