  • Course description
    Course description
    Engineering is not just about technology. It is about people, companies, manufacturing and commerce. Engineering decisions must normally be made within a commercial context and engineers are often found in senior management positions where they are required to be leaders and strategic planners as well as problem-solvers and designers. Combining engineering with management produces a lively, interesting and multi-disciplinary degree, with excellent career prospects for graduates.

    The programme begins with the common first year, which provides the basic knowledge and skills which are applicable to all engineering, such as mechanics, thermo-fluids, materials, mechatronics, communications, design and mathematics, in a novel and challenging active learning environment.

    In Year 2, in addition to course units in design, professional studies and management, you study the core material required by mechanical Engineers. You will also learn much about the commercial and ethical constraints placed on engineers by the business world.

    In Year 3 half of the specialist units you attend will be management related. You will complete a group design project and an individual research project which will be engineering based, but with a business angle. As well as specialist management and strategy units, there is the opportunity to study a wide range of options which may include machine tools, management, manufacturing, materials, processes, mathematics, micro-mechanics, modelling & simulation, plant monitoring, power plant, environment and many others. You emerge as a well-rounded graduate with, not only a solid engineering training, but also a useful insight into the commercial world, which will equip you for a wide range of careers including general management and sales, as well as jobs in more technical fields.

    Special features
    -There are opportunities to specialise in the third year.
    -There is a common first year, and opportunity to transfer to the MEng programme.

    Career opportunities
    Professional engineers can work in a whole range of industries: aerospace, automobile, civil, electronics, manufacturing and the process industries. Engineers with a flair for business and management offer a special blend of skills which is in high demand. Engineers also find many employment opportunities in other branches of business where their key skills play important roles. Transferable skills such as communications, problem solving, design, and management enable our graduates to follow careers in the business, management and financial arenas.
