Engineering Management (Top-Up)

International Scholarships available

Overview

If you are an aspiring manager, this course will help you fulfil your potential. Our team of experienced engineers will give you the leadership skills and engineering know-how to help you advance into a management position.

You will develop a broad knowledge of both mechanical and electronic engineering issues. This expertise will inform your management practice, particularly in terms of accounting and cost control. You will enhance your understanding of maintenance and monitoring management, and you will blend your flair for creativity and technology with the ability to organise and plan.

The level of automation in production is now extremely high. We will show you the software and controls behind the electronics. You will build your skills in discreet event simulation, 3D modelling, analysis of configurations, robotic simulation and in producing efficient components.

Talented engineers are in demand around the world and everything we teach will offer you a global outlook, from international supply chains and financial management of projects, to eco-engineering and the production of sustainable products with different materials, processes and low-carbon designs.

Research Excellence Framework 2014
Research Excellence Framework 2014: our University demonstrated strength in five emerging areas of research which it entered into the assessment for the first time, including computer science.
We will give you access to online learning facilities and encourage you to base assignments around your current role, meaning your company can benefit from the work you do.

It is our contacts with industry that make us stand out from the crowd - engineering students from our University have been on trips to Jaguar, Nestle and Coca Cola in recent years, while we offer guest lectures from experienced consultants and the opportunity to interact with and see the work of our students at masters level.

You will be given a full three month license to the Flex Sim package to work on discreet event simulation and you will also have access to our onsite Rapid Prototyper for 3D print designs.

We understand that full-time study does not suit everyone. That’s why we offer courses which give you the opportunity to decide where, when and how you can get involved in learning. Studying a distance learning course offers the convenience and flexibility to make education work for you. Whether you’d like to fit your studies around childcare, develop your skills while working or, quite simply, want to learn from the comfort of your own home, we can help you gain a qualification at a time and pace that suits your lifestyle.

Like our students on campus, you will have the same excellent teaching and learning resources, however you’ll find these online instead of in a lecture theatre. Not only are all the modules taught online, but you will also have access to an online community and more than 140,000 books and journals in our online library.

This course offers the opportunity to take a ‘sandwich’ year – a year of paid employment in industry which will build your skills and experience. This is usually taken between the second and third year of your degree, typically making your course four years in total.

Students who choose the sandwich route find it helps with both their studies and getting a job after graduation. It can build your confidence, contacts, and of course your CV. Leeds Beckett advertise lots of placement opportunities and provide support in helping you find the right placement for you.
