Course content

We’re in the era of smart technology. Self-optimising systems that learn from their environment and adapt accordingly are already with us – and they’re here to stay. Our MSc Project Management (Electronic Engineering) is your chance to get involved. Study with us and you’ll build a combined set of management and engineering skills that’ll put you front and centre of Industry 4.0.

It’s one of our new project management courses – bringing vital management skills together with engineering expertise in other areas. Developed in line with the Association for Project Management (APM) and Project Management Institute (PMI) Body of Knowledge, it’s fully in sync with what professionals around the world want. Put simply, these are qualifications designed to get you ready for work.

So you’ll start off studying the management of projects fundamentals, what it takes to drive complex projects forward and bring them to a profitable conclusion. From there, you’ll specialise in cyber-physical systems, power electronics and drives, and the key electronic engineering principles underpinning Industry 4.0.

Our teaching staff are professionals from a range of backgrounds, from engineering and environmental industries, to railways and digital. With their support, you’ll leave us well placed to apply for project management roles in a wide variety of sectors.


Strengthen your skill set by spending time in real-life situations, applying the skills you’ve learned throughout your academic studies in a practical industry environment. This course is available with an optional industrial placement year, giving students the chance to tailor their knowledge to suit a specific industry or skill set.

Learning things that can’t be taught or experienced in a classroom, you’ll gain hands-on experience and an inside knowledge of industrial practice. This is an excellent opportunity to put theory into practice and gain transferable workplace skills, providing a real boost to your CV when you graduate.

The University’s Careers Service will assist students in finding suitable placements. There will also be plenty of help and advice from University staff within the School of Engineering. After finding a placement, your tutors will be on hand to ensure this is the right choice for you and your career aspirations, to make sure that you get the most from your time in industry.

A placement fee of £1850 applies.
