The ME (Engineering with Business) is for engineering graduates from any discipline who plan to practice engineering in a business context.
Professional engineers need to understand the environment in which they practice. As their career progresses, engineers are increasingly involved in functions such as finance, quality, marketing and strategy. The ME provides grounding in these areas, to give graduates an understanding of the business implications of engineering decisions. The programme focusses on the practical application of knowledge, which culminates in the 6 month work placement and the industry oriented research project in the final year.
