Course summary

Course Overview

This programme further refines your technical ability and ingenuity, while allowing you to gain a range of project management skills. This will both prepare you for a career as a modern professional engineer and assist your progression into more technical-managerial roles.

Our Engineering Project Management programme will offer you a unique combination of advanced engineering skills, project management expertise, and industry-linked project work for real-world experience. Subjects are taught by experts in the respective field from two specialist departments, Engineering and Management Science.

The flexibility of the course makes it suitable for engineers from all disciplines. Over the year, you will choose from a selection of mechanical, electronic, communication systems and chemical engineering taught modules. This gives you the opportunity to focus on a specific theme or take a more interdisciplinary approach.

Alongside these technical modules, you will also learn professional and managerial skills and gain experience of these. For example, you will learn about techniques for planning and controlling a project, examine the financial and commercial aspects of projects, and get the opportunity to apply project management skills in a team project. As a result, you will graduate with a wealth of technical skills and experience, and the specialist knowledge to take your career to a senior engineering or leadership level.

The course has a strong practical element, drawing on case studies, workshops, projects with local industry and a substantial summer project, which means you will graduate with an increased range of skills and the confidence to apply them in the real-world.

Assessment

Engineering is more than just theory and, as a result, you will experience labs/practical sessions, workshops and group tutorials, alongside lectures. This contact is with academic staff that are internationally recognised and work alongside global companies.

In addition, our technicians and admin support team are very approachable and have many years of experience in helping students achieve success.

Assessment varies between modules, allowing students to demonstrate their capabilities in a range of ways. Typically you can expect assignments such as coursework, presentations and formal examinations.

By enabling you to develop your technical and professional skills to an advanced level, and allowing you to apply what you have previously learnt to real-world problems, this programme equips you with the knowledge and experience for a range of engineering careers, and will put you ahead of the competition.

Engineering has an impact on all aspects of our lives and, as a result, it supports almost all industries. The discipline could lead to you working for any major organisation, with a competitive starting salary. Roles include, but are not limited to:

  • Project Engineer /Manager
