Course Summary

Informed by the needs of industry, this course provides students with the opportunity to develop the strong communication and leadership skills that employers are looking for, and aims to provide an extension beyond undergraduate study for those embarking on, changing, or advancing their chosen career.

Areas of study include combustion and sustainable fuels, finance and accounting, energy systems, and risk management. Delivered by both Lincoln International Business School and the School of Engineering, the programme maximises the specialist knowledge within each School while ensuring a coherent delivery.

Teaching includes the use of real-life case studies, with the aim of enabling students to relate theory to practice across a range of business situations. Students will have the opportunity to take part in workshops led by business experts, visit companies to view current practices and engage in industry-based projects.

How You Study

Students are able to study a range of topics to develop a critical understanding of engineering and management theory. The course incorporates engineering and management core modules which every student must study. Students can then choose four optional modules, enabling them to tailor their learning to their individual background and career ambitions. Teaching is informed by real-world examples and students will be expected to participate in lectures, seminars, and workshops to examine, research, discuss, and debate topics.
