The MSc in Engineering Management is a one-year full-time taught postgraduate masters course aimed at ambitious engineers who aspire to a senior role involving technical and strategic management responsibilities. It is ideal for recent graduates hoping to make their first move into engineering management, or for established professional engineers who wish to make a switch into a management role and must extend their knowledge beyond their specific technical field into management and business.
The course places an emphasis on those key areas of modern management required by engineers entering their first management role and also offers opportunities for technical advancement through a choice of elective modules in specialist areas of engineering.
An ‘International’ course route is also available (tuition fee reduction applies). This is delivered in partnership with Srinakharinwirot University (SWU), Thailand, and offers a unique opportunity for students to study either one or two semesters of the course at a high-quality university in Bangkok yet still gain a British university Master’s award. This route offers added insight into Asian management techniques and is ideal for candidates who seek a global perspective on their studies.
Semester 1 Engineering Business environment and energy studies Fundamentals of forensics and security (data/information security) Critical perspectives in global management Elective module 1
Semester 2 Research methods Low impact manufacturing International strategic management, markets and resources Elective module 2
Optional placement / work experience
Semester 3 Individual project – a project that will link your technical specialism with a core aspect of the course.

Why did you decide to study at De Montfort University? I decided to study at De Montfort University (DMU) because I was attracted by the facilities which were available and the prospect of building on my Electronic knowledge I gained.
What attracted you to the course and why? The course offered varied subjects within the field, rather than focusing on one or two elements which really interested me as I knew it would open up greater opportunities when I graduated. Being flexible and having the ability to grasp varied subjects is something employers looked for in engineers, hence why I signed up for the course in order to aim to become a more accomplished engineer.
What did you enjoy most about the course? I believe the people I met from across the globe, different cultures and backgrounds was probably the best experience I had at university. I always thrived on challenges and I like to think working with such talented people had a great impact on my studies.
Please tell us about your career since leaving DMU. What are you doing now? After completing my MSc degree in November 2010, I took a short break for a few months whilst I applied for jobs. Since November 2011, I have been employed at Rolls-Royce PLC as a Controls Engineer, within the ‘Nuclear Sector’ where I work on HM Naval Submarines.
What does a typical day for you involve? I am currently in the ‘in-service’ area of the Electrical Controls & Instrumentation department, where we support all in-service submarines and deal with any technical issues that occur
How do you see the future? What are your plans for the next few years? I am intending to stay at Rolls-Royce PLC for a foreseeable future as it was always a dream to work there whilst I was studying. Over the next few years I intend to get involved on bigger projects as I continue to develop my knowledge and possibly try out different roles within the company to test myself further.
Would you recommend your course to others? If so, why? Yes, definitely! The course is an amazing experience and you will gain a broad knowledge of the field . The MSc courses are designed to push you to your limits and you will learn a lot about yourself as an individual as well becoming an engineer.
You should have the equivalent of a British Honours degree (2:2 minimum) in a relevant subject. If you have no formal academic qualifications but do have extensive industry experience we will consider your application individually.
