The MSc in Engineering with Management is designed for graduates who wish to combine leading-edge knowledge in management practices and state-of-the-art practical advances to lead in the new era of engineering and technology.
This unique, one-year masters degree in Engineering with Management combines the foundations of management for engineering and technology, with the opportunity to pursue one of four specialist pathways.
Taught in the School of Civil, Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering, you will join one of the UK’s top engineering schools and learn from a distinguished team of experts. With world-leading companies including Arup, Babcock, DNV-GL, GKN, Airbus, Rolls-Royce and the National Composite Centre on our doorstep, we have placed industry at the heart of the vision for this programme and each of its four pathways:
- MSc in Engineering with Management - Intelligent Manufacturing
- MSc in Engineering with Management - Energy for Sustainability
- MSc in Engineering with Management - Infrastructure System
Intelligent Manufacturing will be supported by staff and industry who specialise in the areas of 3D printing, Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things. Likewise, Energy for Sustainability and Infrastructure Systems draw on the University’s well established and respected research history in areas such as smart systems and renewable energy as well as its links to key influencers and decision makers in government.
Each pathway provides a crucial understanding of digitisation, sustainability and global development challenges and their impact on engineering management in the 21st century.

Fees for 2022/23
We charge an annual tuition fee. Fees for 2022/23 are as follows:
- UK: full-time
- Overseas: full-time
Following the recent changes to fee assessment regulation, Channel Islands and Isle of Man students will no longer be charged a separate tuition fee. From the 2021/22 academic year they will be charged the same fees as Home students.
Fees are subject to an annual review. For programmes that last longer than one year, please budget for up to a five per cent increase in fees each year. Find out more about tuition fees.
University of Bristol students and graduates can benefit from a ten per cent reduction in tuition fees for postgraduate study. Check your eligibility for an alumni scholarship.
Funding for 2022/23
Further information on funding for prospective UK, EU and international postgraduate students.
Core units provide a common platform of underpinning skills and knowledge at a postgraduate level to help you understand key principles of management and business practices and to develop the interdisciplinary skills required for leadership in engineering and technology industries.
These units include Strategic Business Management for Engineers to provide fundamentals of what strategy is and differentiate it from other business activities. The programme is designed to develop your analytical and critical skills in the strategic management issues facing technological organisations in today’s fast-changing environment.
The Engineering Design and Technology unit provides knowledge of the technologies on which the modern engineered world is built. It will introduce a combination of theoretical foundations, practical methods and tools to apply in the Global Challenge Project where you'll work collaboratively on a real-world multidisciplinary engineering project.
The Uncertainty and Risk Management unit provides relevant techniques to identify, quantify and analyse uncertainties in engineering applications, to support well-informed decisions about improving products, processes and mitigate risk in projects.
Depending on your chosen pathway, you will have the opportunity to choose from optional units including:
- Smart Cities
- Automation and Smart Manufacturing
- Sustainable Energy Technologies Economics and Impacts
- Disaster Resilience and Sustainable Development
Finally, you will complete a supervised research-based dissertation project.

As a graduate of the MSc in Engineering with Management, you will be better equipped to pursue a leadership role in world-leading engineering and technology organisations or you could choose to work in a variety of industries such as consultancy management, product development or business development. In addition, this course will support roles based in manufacturing, supply chain management or government, particularly where technology is of importance to business success.
This postgraduate degree is intended to prepare you with the skills and knowledge needed for leadership roles in global technology industries or in dynamic entrepreneurial start-up companies in order to address global challenges, the digital revolution and the business dilemma of sustainability.
You could find yourself working in the UK, Europe, emerging-economy countries or worldwide.
Expected application closure date
29 July 2022 for international applicants. 12 August 2022 for UK applicants. Early applications recommended; places may fill before the deadline. As students from different regions tend to apply at different points in the application period, applications from some regions may close earlier in the year.
