The career of an engineering project manager is an exciting and challenging one overseeing complex projects, taking charge of teams and getting them to deliver on time and on budget. Yet there's a worldwide shortage of graduates who have the elusive combination of technical knowledge and the management capability that such a demanding role needs. We've created two closely related sister courses, Engineering Management and Project Management, aimed at filling that gap.

Course content

What will you study on MSc Engineering Management?

This course will cover project management techniques and principles, and different areas of project management, including finance and budgeting, business plans, product development, operations management, and quality management. You’ll also focus on people management techniques such as recruitment, interviewing, appraisals, leadership, and communications.

What will you gain?

In addition to an in-depth understanding of the subject, you will also become familiar with software such as WITNESS, Simul8, MATLAB and Simulink. You’ll be able to use modelling and simulation techniques in engineering, case studies to learn to validate models against real-life methods, and you’ll have knowledge of management theory, systems theory, and the global, social, ethical and environmental context of engineering.


Engineering Management Group Project (60 Credits) - Compulsory

This team project is a three-month endeavour for which you’ll work in groups on an engineering management project, competing to win the order for your company. The task will be drawn from real life and is set by academic staff and industry professionals, who will support you and share their expertise throughout. It will involve research, data collection and analysis, and the presentation of your findings through a written report and group presentation. Previous projects have included working with Vinci Construction to bid for a contract to build a wind farm in Norfolk, and working with B&Q to find solutions to the worldwide shortage of MDF.

Engineering Project Management (30 Credits) - Compulsory

This module aims to offer a comprehensive account of project management, programme management and project portfolios, and focus on professional practice. Students will learn to apply a range of project management methods and techniques to achieve quality engineering solutions.

Engineering Simulation (30 Credits) - Compulsory

This module will enable students to understand the scientific methods underlying the modelling of real systems. It will further expand their understanding of a range of sophisticated mathematical techniques and simulation methods using the examples facilitated by engineering systems. Case studies will be used to illustrate how models can be validated against real measurements. Assessment procedures are designed to enable students to deliver academically significant modelling performances.

Human resource management in engineering (15 credits) - Compulsory

This module enables students to apply a range of human resource management techniques in engineering management situations.

Financial management in engineering (15 credits) - Compulsory

This module enables students to use financial management tools to achieve engineering solutions using financial resources.

Logistics and Supply Chains (30 Credits) - Compulsory

This module will look in detail at the operation and structure of supply chains, supply chain optimisation, logistics, inventory management and factory physics. You’ll learn to make decisions on the use of resources and use mathematical models to plan supply chains.
