Course content

This MSc course seeks to prepare students to be successful senior managers in engineering companies in highly competitive international environments. It is open to full-time and part-time students.

The benefits of this course are that it:

  • Provides students with an opportunity to apply for a variety of roles in manufacturing companies.
  • It incorporates the critical perspectives of entrepreneurship, wealth generation, and internationalisation.
  • The syllabus includes a current and industrially relevant module dealing with Industry 4.0 and the engineering digital environment, which aims to address key areas of engineering and business management theory within an international context, grounding these in real-life practice through research, case studies and applied work.
  • There is an emphasis on planning, directing and coordinating international operations in the engineering sector.
  • In addition to management content, the course has a strong engineering focus, and students will benefit from the industrial experience of academics who have worked as senior executives, operations managers, project managers or supply chain managers in such companies as General Electric, Ford and Rolls Royce, and who truly understand engineering management issues.
  • Research informed teaching is the norm. An Activity Led Learning (ALL) approach (student centred) is promoted within the course, with group work introduced to develop transferable skills helping students to be industry-ready.
