This Masters-level course equips you to be the type of person who can lead a technical team to deliver on time and on budget. You will build on your technical background while adding business and management skills. These skills include project control, supply chain management, risk management and quality optimisation.
Our supportive tutors also help you develop the ‘soft’ skills of working with others and leading projects. For example, you will gain expertise in negotiation and collaboration, effective communication, handling conflict and politics, and managing change.
Modules include ‘Engineering Operations Management’, ‘Project Risk and Quality Management’ and ‘Decision Support for Management’. Your Masters project will involve a real-world project that is supported by a sponsor. It will include both a research and a practical element, and it is an opportunity to impress not only your academic assessors but also potential employers.
