Vision and Values Statement
This programme is aimed at students who have already completed a Bachelor's Degree in Engineering and wish to embark on successful careers in the management of global engineering and technology firms. This course provides grounding in finance, quality, marketing and strategy, while building on student's technical expertise to develop the next generation of industry leaders. We seek to develop creative problem solvers who can critically analyse problems in a business context and propose and develop evidence based solutions. Our teaching methods are highly interactive and varied and include lectures, workshops, tutorials and practical exercises. Group based projects and a final applied research project enable students to move from theory to practise and are key elements in the programme's design.
-Describe the basic principles of management and business organization, and to explain their application in technical environment.
-Display understanding of the social, ethical and legal considerations relating to engineering practice in society.
