The MSc Engineering Management programme meets a specific skills gap in the industry for engineers with project management competencies who can lead on engineering projects in any sector focusing on both technical excellence and management ability in equal measure. Our Engineering Management course has been designed in response to the worldwide shortage of engineers with the all-around capability needed to oversee complex projects. It is a dynamic and demanding programme, combining in-depth technical knowledge with a multitude of personal attributes and business expertise. This programme is for professionals with some industrial understanding that wish to move into management roles within the engineering industry.
Why Study MSc Engineering Management?
We are one of the very few universities in the region to offer a programme in Engineering Management and attract graduates from various engineering disciplines, bringing rich and diverse backgrounds into the classroom. The person with this role will create the ‘map’ to successfully achieve the goals of an engineering project. In addition to generic project management modules, students will study a specialised module on supply chain and logistics which will equip them to understand the operation of supply chains in an engineering enterprise and to be able to control the logistical operation. Students have an edge as the University works with companies such as Microsoft, Dell EMC, IBM, Oracle and SAP in addition to being Cisco Net Academy – meaning the student will have access to the latest equipment and can make use of specialist teaching materials and workshops. Programme content is enriched by providing industry engagement opportunities to students through industry speakers and field trips.
Excellent industry engagement opportunities, especially organization where we have formal alliances e.g Cisco, Dell EMC, IBM, Oracle and SAP.
Opportunity for professional certifications e.g. CCNA, Dell EMC Associate certificate in Cloud Infrastructure and Services, Dell EMC Associate certificate in Data Science.
ESD compliant Computer Engineering Lab with state-of-the-art National Instruments equipment.
Opportunity to work on industry projects as part of final year projects and coursework.
Opportunity to engage with high profile professionals at invited guest talks and field trips.
Opportunity to participate in various IT competitions and Hackathons under faculty mentorship.
Gain leadership experience by joining the MDX Computing Society.
Entry to various events and talks open only to Universities that have MoU with the British Computer Society – Middle East section.
Taught sessions are held at our Dubai Knowledge Park campus (Block 16, 17, 04 and 19) during the week (Sunday to Thursday) between 6:30 pm and 9:30 pm. Additional sessions might be scheduled over weekends or holiday periods and you can expect to receive plenty of notice for these. You can expect to attend one session per week per module, except where otherwise specified in the programme timetable and for the Dissertation module in which you will be working individually on your thesis with some supervised elements. Attending scheduled weekly classes is an important requirement for the completion of this programme.
You will be actively involved in a range of learning, teaching and assessment approach as part of your programme. Such active approaches aim to put you at the centre of your learning so you are involved and engaged in all aspects of your assessment and learning. Your programme will require your active participation in learning activities and engagement with your fellow students both individually and collaboratively, working and learning with other students as part of a small group. Learning activities may also occur both within and outside the classroom.
Your learning will also be supported by technology. Increasingly your tutors will be using existing and emerging learning technologies to engage you in e-learning activities. Your programme may be facilitated using a variety of media and online tools (My Learning on UniHub, podcasts, wikis, etc.) which could allow you flexible access to a diverse range of online resources, quizzes and learning materials as well as collaborative tools with which you can engage and learn with your peers.
Not confined by the time and space associated with traditional teaching methods you may take part in online discussions and learning activities from wherever you are studying. By engaging with e-learning you will also be developing skills that are essential for your learning and are also highly valued by employers. These include but are not limited to: working flexibly, communication, understanding of IT, team working and creating shared understandings based on quality resources and access to global expertise.
Taught modules are devised to ensure active learning both of the subject matter and of the skills essential to postgraduate level study. In addition to scheduled class time, students are expected to undertake independent study doing research work, preparing for lectures and seminars and working in groups.
A number of assessment methods are used at Middlesex University, and these vary depending on the content of the modules being taught. Assessment comprises a mixture of coursework, peer review, presentations and portfolio work. For example, you may give an oral presentation, read and comment on an academic article or write an academic essay.
Case studies are used extensively. In addition, each module has a comprehensive range of online resources available to enhance your studies with us. You will receive detailed module handbooks each year with information on teaching and learning strategies, assessment methods and reading materials.
