The Engineering Project Management programme is aimed at engineers wishing to advance their engineering and organisational skills and enable the move from a technical to a technical-managerial position.
The course consists of three parts. The first section of the course is dedicated to management theory and practice, taught by four compulsory project management modules. It provides a thorough grounding in strategic thinking and the commercial aspects of project planning and control. The second section is dedicated to the theory and practice of engineering, taught via thee optional engineering modules. Modules can be taken from other Engineering MSc programmes, subject to timetable restrictions. The third section is practically-based and allows the technical and managerial skills to be practiced via team and individual projects, in conjunction with industry where possible.
The programme has a strong practical element. As well as covering both management, engineering and application of the two, it uses a full range of learning and assessment techniques including lectures, seminars, commercial simulations, and projects assessed via reports and presentations. It attracts students from all over the world.
