You might be just finishing your first degree, or perhaps already in your first role and looking to advance your career.
You will learn about systems modelling and systems engineering, as well as the application of problem structuring methods in real engineering situations. You will also learn how to analyse different management strategies and apply critical appraisal techniques in a variety of technical areas, e.g. construction, production, manufacturing.
On completion, you will have gained the skills and knowledge required to work in industrial engineering and/or technical management.
We offer three modular programmes intended for those aspiring towards senior positions in:
Project Management (PM)
Operations Management (OM)
Engineering Management (EM)
We concentrate upon not only analytical subjects but also communication skills and teamwork. Semester 1 modules are taken by all students to develop a firm base of general knowledge and techniques for further specialised management study. Semester 2 sees students split into relevant modules for each programme; these modules are designed to provide students with a rounded view of management in the engineering and industrial sectors. The programme culminates in a 15 week dissertation project encompassing real industry or commercial study, which will be undertaken in the summer (in year 2 for part-time students).
