Course Summary

Overview

In today's rapidly evolving competitive environment, project management has developed from a specialist activity into a major process for managing change, innovation and securing commercial success.

Take our virtual tour

Managers and engineers at every organisational level need an in-depth understanding of the concepts, techniques and tools required to manage multidisciplinary teams and project life cycles for new product development.

This accredited course is designed for graduates and professionals who have already acquired expertise in their field of engineering, and now wish to develop engineering project management skills in order to provide strong leadership and contribute to successful project deliveries. It has been specifically developed with feedback from our current industry partners, including SAIC Motor Limited, formerly MG Rovers, which also sends senior project management experts to share their experiences through guest lectures (subject to availability) (industry partners are subject to change).

Course information

This course aims to respond to the ongoing trend for project-based work within engineering organisations, and the fact that projects are becoming extensively and increasingly technically complex.

It is designed to prepare you to manage and lead organisational change through projects and become effective change agents. We take a high level, critical and evaluative view of project management, providing you with an understanding of planning, monitoring and controlling techniques required to deliver a very successful project.

We focus on projects involving major changes and complexities, such as issues related to new products and services, new plant, equipment, new operating systems, and look at how they can affect the lives of people both inside and outside the organisation.

The course balances the technical side of project management with the soft side of project management, which focuses on behavioural excellence and people management. You therefore have the opportunity to learn about the human dynamics of project teams, developing your skills in leadership, communication and teamwork, as well as learning how to plan sophisticated projects by using commercial software packages and apply quality and good financial management.

Career prospects

This course has gone through the rigorous processes of validation by our current industrial partners and accreditation by APM, which demonstrates both the quality of the programme and the fact that it is recognised in the industry.

As a successful graduate, you should be better prepared for the strategic management of projects. Upon successful completion, you will also gain skills that can be applied to various managerial tasks required in any organisation, such as team working, leadership, critical thinking/ problem solving, risk management, communication, change management, etc.

Building on their master’s degree studies, previous graduates have secured exciting and rewarding positions across a wide variety of industries in leading organisations worldwide. They have become senior managers, consultants and business owners, and regularly return to the University to support current students as guest speakers and by hosting visits to their companies. This networking often leads to job and internship opportunities, which can jump start your career and provides valuable work experience.

This course is accredited and recognised by Association for Project Management (APM).
