About this course

This degree is designed for students with a background in engineering who wish to advance their career in the management of engineering-based industry.

This programme also emphasises entrepreneurship and enterprise, developing and enhancing the management and strategic skills that will be necessary in running your own business. A wide range of modules such as management, business, finance and computing will give you an opportunity to integrate and apply engineering within a practical business context.

Whilst developing your appreciation of management, you will also deepen your existing core engineering skills in areas such as computer aided design, solid modelling and prototyping and engineering data analysis. To achieve the full MSc qualification, you will also complete an MSc Project, which will give you the opportunity to carry out research in an area of particular interest to you and your career aspirations.

Modules are typically taught by both lectures and supporting seminars. The seminars may be guided workshops in laboratories or staffled tutorials, as appropriate for the module. All students have access to a virtual learning environment where additional learning resources are available, including the opportunity to participate in online discussion groups. Each module on the course is separately assessed. Students are expected to evaluate theoretical or practical frameworks for the analysis and critical evaluation of a variety of issues, informed by recent research. Where appropriate, they are also expected to produce new critiques, methodologies and insights and propose new solutions to problems.

With the increasing complexity of the engineering industry, there is a requirement for engineering managers to be specialised in engineering as well as in business and management aspects of the organisation. The programme is specifically designed to allow you to update, extend and deepen your knowledge in order to enhance your career opportunities in industry and entrepreneurship as well as preparing you for further academic research.
