This allows students with limited experience to put into practice the skills and techniques developed throughout the Master’s degree.
More than 1.8m additional engineers and qualified technicians will be needed by 2025 to meet existing and growing demand for skills across Britain, according to Engineering UK; there is currently a shortfall of at least 20,000 UK-trained engineers every year. The engineering sector as a whole currently accounts for 26% of GDP and more than 5.7m jobs.*
Society today places a huge range of demands on the engineering community, from the desire for ever more sophisticated consumer goods to the challenges imposed by the need for clean forms of power and transport. Faced with these demands, engineering industries in the UK are continually seeking professional engineers with high levels of expertise and skills.
If you are a graduate from an engineering or closely related science discipline and you would like to extend your knowledge, skills and ability to an advanced level, this course can help you achieve this.
By providing you with a greater depth of knowledge and skills in engineering science and expanding your technical skills into previously unfamiliar areas of mechanical engineering and related subjects this course can help you to broaden your skills and knowledge and develop the management know how for you to succeed as a manager within an engineering organisation.
