Course content

The Technology Management Group of UCL\'s Mullard Space Science Laboratory (MSSL) and UCL Centre for Systems Engineering (UCLse) have pooled expertise to develop this exciting new programme, which aims to equip students with the knowledge and skills necessary to develop a career in technology management or engineering management.

The programme blends general principles of management with technology-focused teaching and integrates aspects of systems engineering and project management; the UCL Mullard Space Science Laboratory has nearly fifty years\' experience of developing cutting-edge spacecraft technology, and the programme content builds on research conducted by the Technology Management Group at MSSL in these areas.

The programme contains two compulsory modules relevant to leadership and entrepreneurship (Technology Strategy, and Business Environment). These modules will give students the knowledge and skills necessary to lead new technology-driven enterprises.

The curriculum has an international focus, with case studies from major technology companies around the world including Apple, Samsung and Lenovo. A number of industrial visits are anticipated and this \'real world\' exposure to organisations will help contextualise the theory and techniques learnt.
