Engineering Management - MSc


Course Description

The MSc in Engineering Management is a one year full-time taught course aimed at ambitious graduate engineers who aspire to higher level management positions, especially of a technical nature. The course develops those areas of management that graduates require in their progression towards a management career but firmly anchored in a technical context.

The course benefits from the knowledge and expertise from our Engineering Education and Management Research Group.

It is intended to provide students with a good understanding of the techniques and issues in modern engineering management, with an emphasis on those skills that will be immediately required in first line management roles. It provides students with:
-A sound understanding of aspects of management relevant to the technical manager
-Opportunities to apply management thinking to real technology issues
-Develop management skills applicable to your employability prospects and career development
-Gain experience of exploiting technological opportunities within large firms or as an entrepreneurial activity

In addition to the ‘technical’ subjects covered within the modules, there is an emphasis on the development of generic or transferable skills within this programme, in particular creativity and innovation, capacity for analysis, problem formulation and solving, planning and time management, communications (written and oral), team working and interpersonal skills, research skills and activity management.
