Focusing on both technical excellence and management ability in equal measure, our Project Management course has been designed in response to the worldwide shortage of engineers with the all round capability needed to oversee complex projects. It's a dynamic and demanding subject, combining in depth technical knowledge with a multitude of personal attributes and business expertise. This course is almost identical to its sister course, Engineering Management.

Programa académico

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. Project Management students will also study an Engineering Innovation module, in place of which Engineering Management students will study Logistics and Supply Chains.

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 Engineering Innovation module will look at innovation within the context of engineering and how to develop a business strategy to make innovations commercially successful, including generating ideas, research and development, risk management and investment decisions.

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 team working 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.
