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 organizations;
- 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 organization. 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.

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.
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.
