MSc Engineering (Management)

The practice of Engineering Management is a distinct topic – as distinct from the discipline of Management as it is from Engineering. The engineering manager must demonstrate a broad range of skills and maturity in people skills. The challenge is to lead, while at the same time recognizing that those with the capability to solve the problems might require some special support to make this achievable. Frequently, to be an effective engineering manager it is also necessary to be a specialist in some areas too: the ideas of breath and depth are not mutually incompatible, and in this program, we underpin this by encouraging Engineering Management students to take one specialist module option. In terms of Engineering Management, again, this is a board topic spanning production, new product development, right through to research and development, and innovation management. All students will have the opportunity to gain an overview insight into several modern engineering management topic areas and select a smaller number for a more detailed study. These include topics such as LEAN, Six Sigma, The Toyota Way, Process Improvement, industrial logistics, Industry 4.0, statistics, and data analytics, quality management, Technology Readiness Levels, Patents and Export Control, Systems Engineering, and Transition Engineering. Our innovative Learning and Teaching approach, coupled with sophisticated guided self-study materials will enable each student to take an individually tailored learning trajectory. The lecturers have experience in industrial engineering management, and this program integrates the best current industrial practice with the latest emerging technology and engineering management thinking.
