Program Description

Master of Engineering Management MEM

London South Bank University


The course covers a combination of the technical skills and management knowledge essential in the development of innovative solutions to complex technical business problems.

This course will provide you with a thorough understanding of:

  • leading technology and engineering projects;
  • managing teams, engineering functions and organisations;
  • developing new products and services;
  • designing and managing the supply chain; and
  • the economic aspects and decision-making processes of engineering projects; and electromechanical systems.

The course will offer you the opportunity to acquire and develop the skills and tools necessary to progress to management positions within an organisation. It will also build on your existing technical knowledge, relating it to the management aspects of the course by means of case studies and projects. The course balances academic theory with practical opportunities to demonstrate engineering management capabilities, and deliver solutions to real problems through assignments and projects.


  • Technology evaluation and commercialisation
  • Technical, research and professional skills
  • Economic aspects of engineering projects
  • Electromechanical systems and manufacturing technology
  • Supply chain engineering and operations management
  • Energy, the environment and product life-cycle
  • MSc engineering project/dissertation

Methods of assessment

Assessment is through examinations and also practical work and assignments using case studies, group work, research projects and presentations.

Development of practical skills

You'll develop your practical engineering skills through work carried out in laboratories and workshops; in the industry through supervised work experience; in individual and group project work; in design work; and in the development and use of computer software in design, analysis and control. Evidence of group working and of participation in a major project is expected.

Overview course structure

The course is based on two semesters per academic year with three modules being delivered and assessed in each semester on the full-time mode. The part-time curriculum consists of the same modules, set out over two years.


The Master in Engineering Management develops those areas of management that you'll require to progress in a management career, but firmly anchored in an engineering context.

Graduates will possess a unique set of technical and management skills which should make them very attractive to prospective employers, especially in technology or engineering-led companies.
