Engineering project management is a dynamic profession and you’ll need to be up to date with new developments in the philosophies, methods and tools for planning and executing projects. These developments are particularly important to industries engaged in developing new products, systems or capabilities.

The MSc Engineering Project Management is designed to give you the understanding and knowledge to employ management and technical tools, and the skills and confidence to spearhead and manage the development of new products and projects within the technological industries. You'll learn to identify business issues and develop systematic, original and creative intellectual skills to formulate solutions. The research you undertake as part of your individual project will give you an opportunity to explore your particular area of interest in greater depth.

Students on the MSc Engineering Project Management degree have the option to take a work placement after they have completed all the taught units.
