Engineering Mangement (MSc)

Course Description

This Masters programme is aimed at engineering graduates aspiring to senior level positions in large manufacturing or service provider organisations, or as part of an engineering supply chain. Graduates from related disciplines can embrace engineering continuous improvement, operations management and enterprise requirement planning (ERP) applications in engineering.

About the programme

In many engineering organisations ERP is the main software system application that controls and assists in the management of all functional departments and the whole facility, often globally. This unique programme has a UK and global appeal for career development and future plans are currently being developed to offer SAP ERP certification. It satisfies both the operations management and continuous improvement (CI) elements within engineering, and the application of ERP systems such as SAP and/or Oracle. Many companies use ERP within the supply chain including Terex, Tata Steels, RollsRoyce, Honeywell, Audi, and BMW.

This programme will develop the skills you need to interface with functional users, other than engineers, giving you an informed view for further configuration or customisation.

Your learning

Core topics include ERP, continuous improvement and operations management with options of Total Productive Maintenance (TPM), Project Management and modules with further planning and management of resources.

Our lecturers are seasoned industry experts, and we complement their knowledge with industry visits to determine the effectiveness of various applications.

MSc students undertake a dissertation, selecting a specialism to achieve a greater understanding of the implementation and advanced use of software applications, management initiatives and planning within an engineering setting. There may be scope to integrate this dissertation with industry, where an engineering supervisor will be allocated to assist your MSc journey and to advise and introduce you to industry links.

Our Careers Adviser says

Graduates are equipped for the next step in their career in manufacturing and service operations. Most business organisations that implement ERP solutions use fully-trained, qualified implementation partners and consultants throughout their lifecycle.

There is demand for graduates who have had some initial education and training and hands-on experience in ERP solutions such as SAP. Businesses, ERP solution providers, and consulting organisations require top calibre trained ERP consultants and users. UWS graduates who are trained in ERP and supporting materials will possess a unique skill-set that will be a differentiator when competing in the employment market.

Professional recognition

We will seek accreditation for this programme in the near future from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET).

Industry-standard facilities

Our recently upgraded facilities will ensure you’re equipped to deal with the requirements of industry:
• Recent investment in new laboratories for engineering and physics will further enhance our reputation for applied interdisciplinary research
• Paisley Campus – fully equipped manufacturing workshop; materials testing and analysis facilities; metrology laboratory; rapid prototyping centre; and assembly and welding laboratories
• Significant investment in facilities for thin film technologies, micro-scale sensors and nuclear physics research
• Lanarkshire Campus – £2.1 million engineering centre, with particular focus on the design and engineering disciplines opened in 2008
• Both Lanarkshire and Paisley campuses have modern, dedicated IT facilities utilising a range of industrial applications software such as PRO/Engineer, Ansys, Fluent, WITNESS and MS Project.
