It is designed for UK, international and European students seeking to become managers and leaders in technology-based businesses.
- Building on your existing engineering or business skills, this final year course aims to introduce you to the key aspects of managing a company in an engineering based organisation and the latest developments in business management theory, such as strategic management, supply chain and logistics, quality, project management and environmental management.
Why you should study this course
- You will have access to commercial software such as Arena.
- You will be offered free student membership of WES, the Women’s Engineering Society which is an Equality, Diversity and Inclusivity society open to all regardless of gender identity.
What you’ll study
The course is structured around a deliberate cluster of modules, which aim to cover some of the most essential modern engineering management activities. It aims to deepen your knowledge and capabilities in the key areas of quality management, lean manufacturing, operations, communication and information technology, business, policy and strategy, pervasive issues, supply chain management, business simulation and manufacturing process improvement.
Upon successful completion, you should develop a range of management, intellectual and personal skills – including communication, cultural awareness, team working, objective setting, leadership, consultancy, presentation skills and digital literacy – which are considered as requirements for operational effectiveness and success. Upon successful graduation, you should be better prepared to participate in and lead engineering projects, solving engineering management problems and implementing engineering processes effectively.
How you’ll learn
The course is underpinned by current research in the various specialised fields and newly evolving areas within the disciplines, providing you with the opportunity to explore different ways that effective leadership and management can significantly contribute to wealth creation, competitiveness, and the advancement of society.
Actual teaching contact hours will vary depending on the level of study and the requirements of a particular semester. In a typical week, your contact hours may be divided amongst:
