Course content

This is part of a set of study options within the postgraduate Engineering Capability Development Framework (ECDF). The concept behind the Framework is to offer you flexibility in the modules you study, and the opportunity to move freely between award routes based on your career goals.

The MSc/PG Dip/PG Cert Engineering Management course is aimed at engineers who want to move into management while maintaining their competences in technical subjects. It can also help you develop a portfolio of evidence to support Chartered Engineer (CEng) registration, even if you don't have the academic qualifications normally required to study engineering management at Master's level.

Building on your experience alongside your peers

You'll normally have substantial experience in engineering, perhaps as an engineering undergraduate or as an apprentice with a Higher National Certificate (HNC), who has progressed to working at graduate level or equivalent.

The MSc Engineering Management course has an 'advised route', but there is a wide range of optional modules available, and built-in flexibility to choose the topics most relevant to your career aspirations. Just talk to the Programme Leader about the modules that best match your goals. There is also flexibility in the learning format, with taught three to five-day blocks of lectures and workshops on campus, distance- learning, or work-based project options.

Students are either full time students completing the award in one year, or industrially based students that come from a range of different companies within the sector, including primes and throughout the supply chain. This mix of students from different backgrounds, companies and with different roles adds a unique perspective of peer learning, as you network and learn from each other.

However you approach the course, we're here to help support your long-term professional career development, including helping you develop a 'portfolio of evidence' to support your application to become a Chartered Engineer.

We hold a number of University-wide open evenings as well as a number of subject specific events throughout the year for anyone considering postgraduate and professional study. Visit http://www1.uwe.ac.uk/whatson/opendays/postgraduateopendays.aspx
