What Will You Study

Similar to the Department’s Engineering Project Management (EPM) course, this programme contains three elements:

  • taught technical engineering modules
  • taught modules to teach project management theory
  • group and individual projects to apply the skills.

This course differs from EPM in that the emphasis is firmly on the technical content. Technical modules are shared with the Departments Mechanical Engineering MSc and so offer the same blend of theory and practical investigation, taught by experts from the Department. The Management modules are shared with Lancaster University Management School’s Project Management MSc Programme and taught be experts from that Faculty. 

The programme has a strong practical element.  It uses a full range of learning and assessment techniques including lectures, coursework, end of module reports and presentations, group projects and a substantial individual project. The individual project, worth one-third of the overall course, can be selected from a wide pool of possible topics proposed by academics in the Department, and suitable self-proposed projects are also permitted. The course attracts students from all over the world.
