A business meeting: a woman leans forward emphatically while four seated colleagues look up towards her.

This course is designed to broaden your knowledge and understanding in core engineering-related disciplines. Students will acquire research and business skills demanded by industry and professional bodies.

We have strong links with industry and world-class leading organisations such as Tata Steel, Dow Chemicals, Aston Martin, Ford, Zimmer Biomet, Rolls Royce and Valero.  

Studying on the BSc Engineering Management programme you will gain real-world experience and knowledge supported by a team of lectures with vast number of years’ experience in industry. 

Engineering Management graduates play a major role in design and manufacture where the challenges include the development of more efficient and effective manufacturing systems and processes, the creation of innovative products, sustainability and the building of new business models to support high-value manufacturing.  

It will provide you with a broad-based education including studies in engineering technology and materials, manufacturing systems and processes, product and system design, complemented by studies in business and management.  

This course will develop the multi-disciplinary and soft skills that are increasingly being demanded in today’s dynamic and resource-conscious environment.  

This course has been developed to satisfy industry demand for professional engineers who possess sound business and management skills combined with engineering experience.
