Develop the knowledge, skills and understanding of business, operations and strategy to prepare you for a career in engineering management.

Our course builds your skills in leadership and management and teaches you how to apply them in an engineering context. You’ll explore the impact of new technologies and how they relate to management in the engineering sector. Your studies will include business analysis, product development and supply chain management.

Throughout the course, you’ll develop a strong foundation in management essentials such as project management, strategy, operations and finance. You’ll also have the opportunity to focus on areas of management that are most interesting to you.

Project work is a key feature of the course. You’ll work in multidisciplinary teams with students who bring knowledge from a range of backgrounds. You can also choose to carry out a practice track project which allows you to work on a real-world engineering management challenge together with an industrial partner.

You may also want to look at our related course, MSc in Innovation and Technology Management.

Learn from experts in the field

Our course is delivered by the Faculty of Engineering & Design and School of Management. This collaborative approach bridges the gap between the two disciplines. You’ll learn from academics and industry professionals with expertise in engineering, innovation, management and business. You’ll apply this learning to solve complex problems with real impact. You’ll also benefit from our links to business through guest lectures, site visits and opportunities to work with partner companies on real engineering management projects.
