All new technologies, products and services require management to take them from the concept stage to commercial success. Engineering Management is, therefore, a strategically important part of professional engineering, irrespective of the technical area. This MSc programme will enable technically-qualified graduates to become more effective as managers within engineering firms, through the development of their innovation skills, and their abilities to assess the engineering and business implications of ideas and effectively convert them into commercial successes. The MSc in Engineering Management is taught by internationally leading experts and practicing managers to ensure students master not only the theory of management tools and techniques but also how they are applied in real engineering situations.
The MSc in Engineering Management is a one year full-time taught programme aimed at ambitious graduate engineers who aspire to higher level management positions, especially of a technical nature. The programme develops those areas of management that graduates require in their progression towards a management career but firmly anchored in a technical context. The programme 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
The programme aims to allow technically qualified students to develop their engineering management knowledge and skills within a technical context and with a specialist management emphasis. 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.
2:1 degree in a subject with a significant Electronics, Engineering, Mathematics or Physics content. Experience of having worked in industry is an advantage but is not essential. Applications are also welcomed from candidates with a good 2:2 degree (or equivalent) and at least two years relevant work experience. Will also consider applications from students with lower qualifications, particularly when the student has high marks in relevant modules and/or appropriate industrial experience.
