MSc Engineering Management

Ideal for recent graduates hoping to make their first move into engineering management or for established professional engineers who wish to work in a management role and need to extend their knowledge beyond their technical field into management and business.

Our technicians and academics will support you in your individual project – a substantial piece of work in your final semester that will link your technical specialism with core aspects of management.  

You will be taught by expert research and teaching staff from across the University, including from the School of Engineering and Sustainable Development and Leicester Castle Business School, reflecting the multidisciplinary nature of the course.
