What will I learn?

In recent years there have been significant developments in the philosophies, methods and tools for planning and executing projects. These developments are particularly important to industries engaged in developing new products, systems or capabilities.

This course is designed to provide industry with personnel who understand and can employ management and technical tools, and are able to spearhead and manage the development of new products and projects appropriate for the technological industries.

The emphasis is on practical class-based activities that bring the theory to life. You’ll develop an understanding of project management methods and tools, and how to employ them in the planning and execution of projects, as well as becoming fully aware of engineering design methods and tools.

By drawing on research and recent developments you will gain awareness of current issues and develop systematic, original and creative intellectual skills to formulate solutions.

As a graduate of this course, you'll have the ability and confidence to apply your knowledge and skills to design problems either individually or as part of a group. Crucially, you'll be able to do so with a detailed understanding of sustainable development concepts, taking environmental, social and economic issues into account.

The research undertaken as part of the Individual Master’s Project will give you an opportunity to explore your particular area of interest in greater depth.

This course will be of particular relevance to Knowledge Transfer Partnership Associates engaged in the design, engineering and manufacturing sectors.

As an Engineering Project Management graduate, you will be prepared to undertake roles such as project manager, project engineer, programme manager or technical manager.

Placement opportunities

An exciting and valuable part of this course is the option to do a placement, which provides an excellent opportunity for you to gain first-hand industry experience and apply the learning that you have acquired through the course.

Careers
