MSc Engineering with Management
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 three specialist pathways.
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 three 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.
Each pathway provides a crucial understanding of digitisation, sustainability and global development challenges and their impact on engineering management in the 21st century.
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 the engineering and technology industries.
Units include Strategic Business Management for Engineers to provide fundamentals of what strategy is and differentiate it from other business activities. The unit 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 will work collaboratively on a real-world multidisciplinary project.
The Systems Risk Management unit studies risk, the importance and role of risk analyses in engineering systems design and management, and methods to perform risk analyses in these contexts.
Finally, you will complete a supervised research-based dissertation project.

An upper second-class honours degree or international equivalent in an engineering-related subject. Applicants may be recommended for an alternative Engineering with Management pathway based on their academic and work experience.
We will consider applicants whose grades are slightly lower than the programme's entry requirements, if they have at least one of the following:
- evidence of significant, relevant work experience;
- a relevant postgraduate qualification.
If this is the case, applicants should include their CV (curriculum vitae / résumé) when they apply, showing details of their relevant work experience and/or qualifications.
See international equivalent qualifications on the International Office website.
