The career of an engineering project manager is an exciting and challenging one overseeing complex projects, taking charge of teams and getting them to deliver on time and on budget. Yet there's a worldwide shortage of graduates who have the elusive combination of technical knowledge and the management capability that such a demanding role needs. We've created two closely related sister courses, Engineering Management and Project Management, aimed at filling that gap.

Quais são os objetivos da formação?

We are the only institution in London to offer a course in engineering project management. Our excellent links with industry, which we have built up over more than 20 years, have allowed us to develop a course which is highly relevant to the world of work and up to date with the latest research and practice. Our course offers an unusual amount of hands on experience, with practical work incorporated into every module. You'll work alongside professionals on industry sponsored projects, go on site visits and attend lectures by guest speakers. Instead of a thesis you'll work on a team project designed to resemble a real life industry scenario.

Our studios, laboratories and workshops are exceptionally well equipped with specialist software. All our technology and equipment is industry standard a rarity in a university. You'll also have the opportunity to work towards a Prince2certification as part of your studies.

Requisitos: Interviews, entrance tests, portfolios and auditions Entry onto this course does not require an interview, portfolio or audition.

Of the four modules you’ll study, three are common to both programmes: Human and Financial Management in Engineering, Engineering Simulation, and Engineering Project Management. Engineering Management students will also study a Logistics and Supply Chains module, in place of which Project Management students will study Engineering Innovation.

The course will cover project management techniques and principles, and different areas of project management, including resources, schedules, finance and budgeting, contracts, business plans, forecasting, product development, operations management and quality management. You’ll also focus on people management techniques such as recruitment, interviewing, appraisals, leadership, motivation, training and communications. You’ll look at modelling and simulation techniques in engineering, using case studies to learn to validate models against real life methods, and will become familiar with software such as WITNESS, Simul8, MATLAB and Simulink. Finally, you’ll cover management theory and systems theory and the global, social, ethical and environmental context of engineering.

The Logistics and Supply Chains module will look in detail at the operation and structure of supply chains, supply chain optimisation, logistics, inventory management and factory physics. You’ll learn to make decisions on the use of resources and use mathematical models to plan supply chains.

Students from both courses will then come together for the team project, a three month endeavour for which you’ll work in groups on an engineering management project, competing to win the order for your company. The task will be drawn from real life and set by academic staff and industry professionals, who will support you and share their expertise throughout. It will involve research, data collection and analysis, and presentation of your findings through a written report and group presentation. Previous projects have included working with Vinci Construction to bid for a contract to build a wind farm in Norfolk, and working with B&Q to find solutions to the worldwide shortage of MDF.

The course will also improve your numeracy, communication and teamwork skills.If you can’t or decide you don’t want to complete the full MSc course, you can complete two taught modules to graduate with a PG Cert, or all four taught modules, leaving out the team project, to graduate with a PG Dip.
