Course content

Develop knowledge and skills to lead innovative development projects. Gain hands-on experience of creativity tools, technology management and commercialisation.

This course is designed for engineering, management or science graduates who want to develop their innovation and technological/engineering expertise.

You’ll learn about managing technology and innovation in rapidly evolving global organisations. You will also develop project management, strategic management and commercialisation skills.

This is not a typical technology degree: we bridge the gap between management and technology/engineering. Two of Bath’s top departments, the School of Management and the Department of Mechanical Engineering, deliver this course.

Learn in an international and interdisciplinary environment of academics, students and industry contacts. Our students come from all over the world. Their backgrounds include degrees in mechanical and chemical engineering, computer science, economics and social science.
