Course content

The Engineering Project Management programme is aimed at engineers wishing to advance their engineering and organisational skills and enable the move from a technical to a technical-managerial position.

The management side of the programme provides a thorough grounding in strategic thinking and the commercial aspects of project planning and control, while the technical component of the course is flexible and can be customised to meet particular engineering interests. Modules can be taken from other Engineering MSc programmes, subject to timetable restrictions.

The programme has a strong practical element, drawing on case studies, workshops, projects with local industry and a substantial summer project that may be linked to industry.
