Course content

Many engineering companies to date operate on a global business platform, and many are constantly driven by new initiatives such as new products, projects or services to sustain their business growth. Thus engineering graduates who are equipped with both technical and management skill sets are particularly sought after. This course, accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), provides an excellent opportunity to improve your current technical portfolio with a spectrum of engineering operations and project management skills. As a result, you will enhance your employment prospects and your ability to apply for senior engineering management roles.

This course provides the key skills you need to apply the principles of project and resources management within an engineering field. You will also learn how to identify, evaluate and propose solutions to critical engineering systems management areas that need improvement.

You will gain an understanding of business efficiency and international marketing appropriate to engineering fields. There will be plenty of opportunities to engage in hands-on software workshops and group activities. Learning about how to implement appropriate hardware and software systems into engineering companies will improve your operational efficiency and production performance.

  • The course is designed to complement your engineering degree with a rich spectrum of engineering and project management skills.
  • Academic teaching is supported by specialist speakers from industry, keeping you up to date with the challenges and developments in the real world.
  • Many modules are supported by practical workshops using the software. Such practical skills can easily be transferred into the working environment.


The MSc will meet, in part, the academic benchmark requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Accredited MSc graduates who also have a BEng(Hons) accredited for CEng, will be able to show that they have satisfied the educational base for CEng registration
