Course content

This programme further refines your technical ability and ingenuity, while allowing you to gain a range of project management skills. This will both prepare you for a career as a modern professional engineer and assist your progression into more technical-managerial roles.

Our Engineering Project Management programme will offer you a unique combination of advanced engineering skills, project management expertise, and industry-linked project work for real-world experience. Subjects are taught by experts in the respective field from two specialist departments, Engineering and Management Science.

The flexibility of the course makes it suitable for engineers from all disciplines. Over the year, you will choose from a selection of mechanical, electronic, communication systems and chemical engineering taught modules. This gives you the opportunity to focus on a specific theme or take a more interdisciplinary approach.

Alongside these technical modules, you will also learn professional and managerial skills and gain experience of these. For example, you will learn about techniques for planning and controlling a project, examine the financial and commercial aspects of projects, and get the opportunity to apply project management skills in a team project. As a result, you will graduate with a wealth of technical skills and experience, and the specialist knowledge to take your career to a senior engineering or leadership level.

The course has a strong practical element, drawing on case studies, workshops, projects with local industry and a substantial summer project, which means you will graduate with an increased range of skills and the confidence to apply them in the real-world.

As part of the course you will also select and complete a dissertation project that is usually guided by an academic or industrial partner. This will allow you to bring together everything you have learnt and gain valuable real-world experience of working as a professional engineer. The project gives the opportunity to develop and demonstrate technical and project management skills, which is an experience that is invaluable when applying for jobs.
