Course summary

Overview:

You will build on your technical background while adding business and management skills. These skills include project control, supply chain management, risk management and quality optimisation. You will also develop the ‘soft’ skills of working with others and leading projects, including expertise in negotiation and collaboration, effective communication, handling conflict and politics, and managing change. This course involves a real-world project that is supported by a sponsor and will include both a research and a practical element. It is an opportunity to impress not only your academic assessors but also potential employers.

The University hosts the Institute for Automotive and Manufacturing Advanced Practice (AMAP) which provides problem-solving solutions to manufacturers of all capabilities.

Course structure:

We use a wide variety of teaching and learning methods which include lectures, group work, research, discussion groups, seminars, tutorials and practical laboratory sessions. Compared to an undergraduate course, you will find that this Masters requires a higher level of independent working. Assessment methods include individual written reports and research papers, practical assignments and the Masters project.

Employability:

As part of the course, you will undertake a project that tackles a real-world problem. These projects are often sponsored by external clients and we encourage and support you to find your own client and sponsor. This relevant work experience will enhance your skills, build up a valuable network of contacts and further boost your employability.
