MSc Engineering Management(online)
(Award available for year: Master of Science)
On completion of the year/programme students should have provided evidence of being able to:1. demonstrate in-depth, specialist knowledge and mastery of concepts, information and techniques relevant to engineering management;2. appreciate the global dimensions of engineering management and be able to formulate and operate within appropriate codes of conduct, when faced with an ethical issue;3. exhibit mastery in the exercise of generic and subject-specific intellectual abilities;4. analyse and evaluate a range of business data, sources of information and appropriate methodologies, which includes the need for strong digital literacy, and to use that research for evidence-based decision-making.5. demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of techniques applicable to their own research or advanced scholarship;6. take a proactive and self-reflective role in their work and develop professional relationships with others;7. proactively formulate ideas and hypotheses and develop, implement and execute plans by which to evaluate and implement these;8. critically and creatively to evaluate current issues, research and advanced scholarship in the area of engineering management.
Transferable (key) skills
Masters (taught), Postgraduate Diploma and Postgraduate Certificate students will have had the opportunity to acquire the following abilities, as defined in the modules specified for the programme:1. the skills necessary to undertake a higher research degree and/or for employment in a higher capacity in industry or area of professional practice;2. evaluating their own achievement and that of others, using and implementing formal methods of people management;3. self direction and effective decision making in complex and unpredictable situations, being able to analyse and solve significant engineering management problems;4. independent learning and the ability to work in a way which ensures continuing professional development;5. critical engagement in the development of professional/disciplinary boundaries and norms in engineering management.
Achievement for the degree of Master (taught programme) will be assessed by a variety of methods in accordance with the learning outcomes of the modules specified for the year/programme and will include:1. demonstrating knowledge of a wide range of techniques in the engineering management discipline;2. drawing on a wide range of perspectives to demonstrate an understanding of the challenges of working in an engineering management environment and the ability to formulate sophisticated plans to meet those challenges;3. evaluating received opinion, showing the ability to critically evaluate engineering management principles and apply them to the management of resources to deliver engineering project outcomes successfully;4. making sound judgements on an extensive range engineering management challenges, whilst understanding the limitations on judgements made in the absence of complete data, and formulating and implementing plans based on those judgments.
