The MSc in Engineering Management is a one year full-time taught programme aimed at ambitious graduate engineers who aspire to higher level management positions, especially of a technical nature. The programme develops those areas of management that graduates require in their progression towards a management career but firmly anchored in a technical context.
The programme benefits from the knowledge and expertise from our Engineering Education and Management Research Group.
It is intended to provide students with a good understanding of the techniques and issues in modern engineering management, with an emphasis on those skills that will be immediately required in first line management roles. It provides students with:
- A sound understanding of aspects of management relevant to the technical manager
- Opportunities to apply management thinking to real technology issues
- Develop management skills applicable to your employability prospects and career development
- Gain experience of exploiting technological opportunities within large firms or as an entrepreneurial activity
Applicants are expected to hold an appropriate honours degree at 2.1 standard or the equivalent from a university recognised by the University of York in a subject with a significant Electronics, Computing, Engineering, Mathematics or Physics content. Experience of having worked in industry is an advantage but is not essential.
For non-English native speakers English language skills at the standard university requirement of at least IELTS 6.0 or the equivalent are expected.
