Ideal for recent graduates hoping to make their first move into engineering management or for established professional engineers who wish to work in a management role and need to extend their knowledge beyond their technical field into management and business.
Linking business knowledge with engineering and sustainable development issues, this course emphasises key areas of modern management required by engineers and develops your skills in project management, information systems management and people management.
You will also choose from a range of optional modules, which offer opportunities for technical advancement in areas such as mechanical engineering, sustainability, and computer networks and e-commerce systems. Our technicians and academics will support you in your individual project – a substantial piece of work in your final semester that will link your technical specialism with core aspects of management.
You will be taught by expert research and teaching staff from across the University, including from the School of Engineering and Sustainable Development and Leicester Castle Business School, reflecting the multidisciplinary nature of the course.
The broad and challenging content will help equip you with the knowledge needed to work in management positions within engineering companies and in technical roles in business settings. Our graduates are working for companies including Rolls-Royce, Network Rail and Airbus UK.
