Program content


Advanced Operations Management

The core activity of any organisation is its operations, and the performance of the organisation is determined by how well these operations are managed. This module encourages learners to gain deeper insights into business and engineering operations and performance at an organisational level.

Ethics, Environment and Innovation

Corporations must be able to adapt and evolve if they wish to survive. They operate with the knowledge that their competitors will come to the market with a product that changes the essence of competition in their industry. This is placing organisations under increasing pressure to quickly and effectively develop new and innovative technologies, products and processes, which must meet ethical and environmental standards both in home and overseas markets.

Independent Study and Professional Development (IEng)

The individual project is regarded as an important element of the specialist degree. It provides students in their final year with a challenge to identify and undertake an original and detailed study and present a major piece of relevant work to a critical and informed audience. It aims to develop the student's power to work independently, researching in depth a topic of their choice, using relevant concepts and techniques

System Simulation and Project Management

This module is written in two parts, firstly the system modelling & simulation and secondly the application of project management.

In recent years, computer simulation has become a mainstream decision support tool in the manufacturing industry. Leading manufacturing companies around the world recognise computer simulation as a leading edge technology for the 21st century and it is rapidly becoming a mainstream business tool in many industrial sectors including automotive and aerospace.

Management for Engineers

Engineers with excellent management skills and superior business acumen are needed to manage 21st-centur engineering organisations. This module prepares engineers to fulfil their managerial responsibilities within their organisations and to make valuable and lasting contributions. The module also investigates the role of the engineer, in both industry and society, individually planning their own career progression through the development of their continuing development plan (CDP).
