Your Engineering Management Masters will begin with a two-week online induction designed to prepare you for online learning at the University of Leeds. It will introduce the study skills you will need to successfully complete your degree.
Delivered online, the course offers a flexible schedule of modules which are structured to be accessible to working professionals. There are nine individual 15-credit taught modules and you will typically spend eight weeks studying each module, plus a 45-credit project module over 24 weeks.
The modules cover a variety of subject areas to provide you with fundamental engineering management skills and knowledge, including strategic management, project management and managing the impact of emerging technologies. You will also explore continuous improvement and innovation management in organisations.
The Engineering Management Project module gives you the opportunity to apply your newly acquired skills and knowledge to the resolution of a live business problem, or to investigate an academic research topic in-depth.
You can take the course at your own pace and adapt your studies to fit around your work and life commitments. To give you flexibility, it is possible to pause your studies and take them up again at a later point. This means you can choose to complete the Engineering Management Masters in a minimum of two years or up to a maximum of four years.
