The Engineering Management MSc provides knowledge and understanding of the principles underlying the strategic management of businesses. The course enables the student to use the techniques required for the analysis of strategic business issues.
The programme requires the student to undertake 11 taught modules and to complete a major project of approximately 15,000 words. Each taught module involves 22 teaching hours, which may include tutorials, case studies, and guest lectures. The course will run from October to September with examination weeks in December and March/April. The project occupies the final six months. Modules
Assessment methods are designed to meet the particular requirements of each module. These methods vary from 100% examination to 100% continuous assessment. Currently the balance for the taught element of the Programme is approximately 65% examination and 35% continuous assessment. The major project accounts for 60 of the 180 credits required for successful completion of the degree.
This course is accredited by the Chartered Management Institute.
This programme is suitable for candidates seeking a career in the Engineering and Manufacturing sectors, particularly those who aspire to a senior management role.
