Course Description

Guide businesses effectively through the rapid changes in engineering technology, scientific development and management practice. On this MSc Engineering Management, you’ll strengthen your skills and expertise so you can respond effectively to innovation across the engineering sector.

You’ll study management and engineering, focusing on the ways the disciplines can relate to each other, and learn to bridge the communication gap between engineers and managers. On the managerial side, you’ll look at themes like supply chains and strategic management, and combine this with engineering topics including renewable energy use and system ability.

By combining both aspects, you’ll make yourself appealing to a broader range of senior roles in engineering and beyond. You’ll work alongside expert lecturers and a truly international group of fellow students as you learn, drawing on live engineering sector issues from case studies and collaborating organisations, and can further specialise through a final project exploring an engineering challenge that matters to you. You’ll graduate with the demonstrable ability to take your next step in a career in design, product systems or other engineering roles.
