What Will You Study
The demands on the modern professional engineer are varied. In addition to a general physical and technical understanding in your particular field, deeper specialist knowledge is usually required in areas such as communication, organisation and management.
Combining technical learning, provided from Engineering Department, with management and leadership skills, taught by the Management School, this module is designed for engineers wishing to advance to technical managerial positions. Your training will be supported by a series of case studies, workshops and local industry projects, before culminating in a substantial summer project. We will provide training in many areas of project management, including expertise in leadership, financial and risk management and, unique to this programme, we will address the commercial issues that form the foundation to most engineering projects.
Technical modules can be selected from a wide range of topics offered by the Department, subject to timetabling availability, ensuring that the degree is appropriate for a wide range of engineers. Here, you can learn engineering skills as diverse as renewable energy, embedded systems and electrochemical engineering.
