Develop the knowledge, skills and understanding of business, operations and strategy to prepare you for a career in engineering and technology management.
Combining the academic excellence and industrial networks from our outstanding School of Management and Faculty of Engineering and Design, our course builds your skills in leadership and management and teaches you how to apply them in an engineering context. You'll explore the impact of new technologies and how they relate to management in the engineering sector. Your studies will include business analysis, product development and supply chain management.
Throughout the course, you'll develop a strong foundation in management essentials such as project management, strategy, operations and finance. You'll also have the opportunity to focus on areas of management that are most interesting to you.
Team working is a key feature of the course. The teaching environment provides an opportunity to develop your skills working in multidisciplinary teams, applying your diverse skills and experience to a range of contemporary case studies. You can also choose to carry out a practice track project which allows you to work on a real engineering management challenge together with an industrial partner.

Learning and assessment
Recognition of professional qualifications
As well as being recognised as a higher academic qualification, a number of our degrees are also accredited by professional bodies in the United Kingdom. An accredited degree may entitle you to work in a specific profession within the UK, and abroad (where there are reciprocating arrangements with professional bodies in other countries).
The requirements to practise a profession vary from country to country. If you wish to practise your profession outside the United Kingdom, you are advised to confirm that the UK professional qualification you seek is valid in the country in which you are intending to work.
