Course Summary

Develop your innovation and analytical skills to become an effective manager with an engineering firm.

All new technologies, products and services require careful management to take them from the concept stage to commercial success. This course will enable you to operate within a strategically important part of professional engineering, irrespective of the technical area.

The course is taught by internationally leading experts and practising managers to ensure you master not only the theory of management tools and techniques, but also how they are applied in real engineering situations.

Accreditation

Accredited by the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) under licence from the UK regulator, the Engineering Council.

Some employers recruit preferentially from accredited degrees, and an accredited degree is likely to be recognised by other countries that are signatories to international accords.

Course content

You'll develop a thorough grounding in aspects of management relevant to the technical manager, creative and innovative thinking, and a deep understanding of how to apply management thinking to state-of-the-art technology issues.

A major group project towards the end of the course will help you gain practical experience of skills applicable to management of engineering functions within companies, and to develop your research, team working, problem solving, personal effectiveness and communication skills for academic and professional purposes.

We take care to ensure our courses are relevant to your future career. Our professional development framework, designed in consultation with expert external advisors, will help to prepare you for industry, research or further study.

Careers and skills

You'll leave equipped to follow one of three broad career paths: working in industry as a first or second line engineering manager; starting your own technology or engineering based company; or progressing into a research focussed career. Some of our previous students have also progressed into consulting-related careers.

Modules

This module explores the general issues associated with engineering and business decision making where new information is required to inform those decisions - this is created through research. The module will enable students to build on existing research methods knowledge or to learn the fundamentals of research to equip them with the knowledge to undertake and evaluate research. The module assumes some prior knowledge gained from undergraduate study and so is taught through 4 one-hour lectures to help set the scene.
