Course Description

This course has been accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) for Chartered Engineer (CEng) status. The rapid pace of change in commerce and industry and the need to respond quickly to innovation in order to compete effectively in world markets is creating significant challenges in both technology and management infrastructures. For industry, the understanding of the underlying dynamic behind technological and scientific development is often crucial for survival the understanding of new management practices also enables companies to cope and compete effectively. Technological innovation and management have an interdependence and interrelation that results in the need for simultaneous development strategies. Management specialists must learn to understand the technology context in which decisions are made, whilst engineers increasingly need a range of management skills. The 'communication gap' between engineers and managers must be closed if they are to work effectively together as team members with a common goal. Course Content: This course provides a broad understanding of management techniques and modern technology in a fully integrated framework. You will study: Operations and quality management ? Information technology and management ? Strategies for resource husbandry and recovery ? Project formulation ? Research methods ? Project management ? Managing change You will also choose an option from: ? Manufacturing processes and materials ? Industrial control systems ? Sustainable development and impacts on technology ? Principles of operational research A strong feature of the course is the individual project, which comprises a third of the course. We encourage students to undertake projects in industrial companies, but we can also use our extensive resources and staff skills to undertake projects within the University. The course aims to: ? Enable you to develop an understanding of technology management techniques so you have the capability to accept broader and more responsible roles, both technical and managerial, within an atmosphere of continual change ? Engender an understanding of the management role in the investigation, implementation and operation of manufacturing and service systems ? Provide a broad appreciation of material resource utilisation and recovery with consideration of effective planning procedures for minimum waste Career Progression: Graduates from this course find employment in a wide range of engineering and management based careers, such as production management, project management design and research and development. Information Days: The University runs a series of Postgraduate Information Days throughout the year. For details and to book a place, please click on the Open Days tab above.
