Course Summary

This MSc in Systems Engineering (Mechanical) and Engineering Management is an excellent opportunity to consolidate and advance your skills and knowledge in systems engineering, with a mechanical engineering emphasis. Completing the course successfully should increase your employability, as well as your suitability for further research or training options.

Course Details

Almost every business or organisation uses some sort of system to keep things working efficiently and productively. This system might keep information moving securely and efficiently, or it might ensure product distribution or service availability. A systems engineer is the all-important link between complex programming and technology, and its users, customers and stakeholders. So, you’ll need a firm knowledge and understanding of both sides, and the ability to take a joined-up approach to ensure systems meet a wide range of needs reliably, efficiently, and in a user-friendly fashion.

That might sound like a tall order, but it’s a hugely rewarding career path, and this course is a great opportunity for you to develop a unique blend of practical engineering and management-orientated learning. We’re here to help you further specialise your systems engineering knowledge and skills, and completing this course successfully should make you highly employable in a range of sectors and settings.

The course meets professional institution standards in the UK and Europe and addresses a range of contemporary issues in engineering and engineering management. If you’re looking to take a systems-based approach to engineering management, this course is could be ideal.

Key Features:

  • The course is designed to meet professional institution standards in the UK and Europe.
  • We’ll encourage you to undertake a work placement and/or an industry-based project.
  • You can also choose from two alternative pathways: Mechatronics or Electronics Systems Engineering.
  • You can select common systems modules, whichever pathway you take.
  • This course is based at the University of Bolton’s campus in the North West of England.
  • It’s part of a well-established suite of Master’s programmes in Systems Engineering and Management that offers opportunities for study in Germany and dual award options.

Career Opportunities

This course addresses contemporary issues in engineering and engineering management. In addition to helping to develop your technical knowledge and experience, this programme can give you greater confidence in your transferable and personal skills. These can include communication and team working, problem solving, logical thinking and analytical skills; all of which will be invaluable for your career success. Engineers are an integral part of our society and are often sought after for their analytical, computing and managerial abilities.

What Can I Do With This Qualification?

Successful completion of this course will help you progress to a management role in an engineering-based organisation, and provide you with an in-depth understanding of systems engineering in whichever of the three disciplines (Mechatronic, Electronic and Mechanical) you choose.

Career opportunities may include positions in project management, engineering design, materials and mechanics, dynamics and control and systems analyst roles. Graduates can move into a wide variety of organisations including engineering consultancies and design practices, oil and gas, petrochemical, chemical, food and drink, water and energy, research organisations and academic institutions.
