Course content

All new technologies, products and services require management to take them from the concept stage to commercial success. Engineering Management is, therefore, a strategically important part of professional engineering, irrespective of the technical area. The MSc in Engineering Management enables ambitious technically-qualified graduates to become more effective as managers within engineering firms. You will develop your innovation skills and your ability to assess the engineering and business implications of ideas, and effectively convert them into commercial successes. The programme is fully accredited by the IET (Institution of Engineering and Technology) and benefits from the knowledge and expertise from our Engineering Education and Management Research Group.

It is taught by internationally leading experts and practising managers to ensure you master not only the theory of management tools and techniques but also how they are applied in real engineering situations. You will develop a thorough grounding in aspects of management relevant to the technical manager, creative and innovative thinking, and a deep understanding of how to apply management thinking to state-of-the-art technology issues. A major group project helps you gain practical experience of management skills applicable to management of the engineering function within companies, and to develop your research, team working, problem solving, personal effectiveness and communication skills for academic and professional purposes.
