Course Summary

The engineering challenges of the future are massive. And we need exceptional people to lead the way. This Masters in engineering management fuses your existing technical knowledge with practical business and leadership skills. If you take the 'With Industry' option you will have an industrial placement to put your newly acquired skills into practice. You will complete the taught part of the course with exams in May or June, and then undertake three to nine months of paid full-time work in an industrial placement, returning in May/June of your second year to complete your project over the summer. This conforms to UK border agency rules for international students.

This course is delivered using a range of teaching methods including lectures, seminars, work-shops and computer classes. Your project/dissertation will focus on the application of management practices in an engineering industry, process, discipline, case study or project. The course has been designed with significant industrial input which ensures a practical approach in equipping you with the skills necessary for a first junior leadership role as a robust foundation for a career in a management or a leadership position within an engineering or technology setting. The 'with industry' option adds credence to this by giving you direct exposure to a relevant industrial setting.

The objective of this module is to introduce you to the discipline of systems engineering, and help you to apply and critique selected systems engineering analyses in the development of engineering systems. We will look at the main aims and outputs of each stage of the system life cycle and you will learn how to compile, perform and critique the application of basic and advanced systems engineering analyses such as technical budgets, trade-offs, safety/reliability analysis, risk registers and Quality Function Deployment. You will write requirement and systems engineering documents to industry standards, and develop parametric models and apply Concurrent Engineering and life-cycle costing approaches to develop outline design specifications for engineering systems. This module belongs to semester one.
