This degree is designed for those wishing to develop careers as leaders or managers in technology-led organisations. The MSc in Engineering Business Management focuses on key value-adding activities such as marketing; product and process development; operations, logistics and supply chain management; and exploitation of competitive technology. The skills and techniques introduced in this course give new impetus to businesses and help individuals to get the best from themselves, their team and their company.
The course is modular - each student takes a combination of core and elective modules. 9 modules are studied and assessed in total. Modules consist of nominally 40 hours directed tuition in the form of lectures, seminars, group work, presentations, case studies and e-learning. This is covered in a full-immersion, intensive week. Modules are assessed by Post Module Assignment.
The taught modules account for 50% of the Master's degree. A major individual research project, submitted in the form of a dissertation accounts for the other 50%. The taught element of the course includes 8 x core modules and 1 x elective modules to be chosen from an extensive list.
