Course content

This course is specifically aimed at International students, supporting those wishing to gain practical work based experiential learning. Together with studying your chosen course we are offering an additional 6 month placement opportunity, making the course 18 months in length. This allows students with limited experience to put into practice the skills and techniques developed throughout the Master’s degree.

Engineering management is a specialised field of management concerned specifically with the engineering sector. Reflecting industry demand for management-focused engineers, this course is designed to extend the knowledge, skills and ability of graduates in engineering, technology and applied science to the level required of senior management positions in the engineering industry.

Industrial productivity and performance of many manufacturing companies is considered by many to be of concern. Part of the underlying cause of this problem is the lack of highly-educated and trained engineering and technology graduates entering the Engineering Management discipline. There has never been a more important time for businesses to have technically competent managers.

During this course you will study advanced modules covering such areas as; strategic management, new product development, supply chain planning and control and total quality engineering, these modules should provide you with a greater depth of knowledge and skill. Students studying this course will also be provided with access to the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) resources during their studies with us.

Graduates of this course are likely to progress to roles as an engineering manager. You may also find opportunities in general management in a wide range of sectors, although your skills would be most appropriate in management roles that benefit from a background in engineering, such as manufacturing or technical service industries.
