MSc - Master of Science
Currently the fourth industrial revolution, known as industry 4.0, is leading to the increased use of automation and data exchange. This MSc in Engineering Management aims to meet industry’s urgent need for professional engineers with postgraduate knowledge and skills in digitalisation, additive manufacturing (commonly called 3D printing) and engineering-focused business management. It’s an ideal choice if you’re planning a career in engineering management.
Our MSc in Engineering Management focuses on preparing you for industry. It’s designed to take you from your bachelor’s degree to a role in industry. Written with industry collaboration, our dedicated, knowledgeable team will cover the key areas needed to make you stand out to engineering employers. We’ll concentrate on technological advancements, such as additive manufacturing, big data and industry 4.0.
By working with industry players like Airbus, HASS F1, M-Sport, Prodrive and RML to write the programme, we’re ensuring that the core ethos, skills and projects are industry-centred, realistic and aimed to maximise your employability. Industry is changing quickly and the fourth industrial revolution is happening around us. Our dedicated and knowledgeable team will work to help you prepare to develop and innovate as the industry evolves.
Additionally, the course is designed to address all the competencies set out by the Engineering Council and UK-SPEC, and to support you to achieve Chartered Engineer (CEng) status. So, if you’re an ambitious engineering or technology graduate seeking to develop advanced digital manufacturing and production engineering knowledge alongside relevant management and research skills, this master’s degree should prove an excellent investment in your future.
This course addresses contemporary issues in engineering and engineering management. Graduates of the course will be ready to enter industry, especially in roles that demand knowledge of digital engineering and manufacturing technologies. In addition to developing your technical knowledge and experience, this programme will also give you greater confidence in your transferable and personal skills. These include problem solving, critical thinking, team working, forward planning, target setting, communication and marketing.
What Can I Do With This Qualification?
As a graduate of this MSc, you’ll be prepared to promote and develop digital engineering and manufacturing solutions in an engineering-based organisation, and have the potential to progress to a management role. You could pursue a career in sectors such as motorsport, automotive, aerospace, integrated systems, mechanical, electrical, electronic, electromechanical, fluid power components/systems or materials.
Typical occupations include research and development engineer, design and development engineer, system integration engineer, quality assurance/compliance engineer, test/qualification engineer, manufacture/production engineer, maintenance/test engineer, product support engineer, decommissioning/disposal engineer, supply chain/procurement engineer, and engineering business manager. It’s likely that you will seek to achieve Chartered Engineer (CEng) status, and this master’s is designed to meet the academic requirements leading to this professional registration.
Research is an exciting career path that will allow you to explore working in research and development roles or in academia. An MSc can also be used as a stepping-stone for those who wish to continue to an MPhil or PhD.
