About

The Mechanical Engineering and Management programme of the University of Glasgow offers you the opportunity to develop the knowledge and skills needed for modern engineering or technology management. The programme content includes design engineering and other mechanical engineering disciplines.

Overview

Why this programme

  • The University of Glasgow has been delivering world-class engineering education and research since 1840. Mechanical Engineering is a core engineering discipline that has a long history in the University dating back to the 1760s with academic contributors such as James Watt.
  • During the Mechanical Engineering and Management programme of the University of Glasgow you will be taught jointly by staff from the School of Engineering and the Adam Smith Business School. You will benefit from their combined resources and expertise and from an industry-focused curriculum.
  • If you have a mechanical engineering background, but with little management experience and are wanting to develop your knowledge of management while also furthering your knowledge of mechanical engineering, this programme is designed for you.
  • You will learn to understand management principles and practices in an engineering environment, evaluate engineering information and apply business and management tools. You will combine engineering and management knowledge and skills in projects and problem solving.
  • The programme is split into two semesters and a summer session. One semester will be based in the Adam Smith Business School and is aimed at developing knowledge and skills of management principles and techniques. An applied approach is adopted, with an emphasis on an informed critical evaluation of information, and the subsequent application of concepts and tools to the core areas of business and management.
  • During the other semester there will be a combination of compulsory and optional courses that will combine to provide the required credits in Mechanical Engineering.
  • In the summer session, a project will be undertaken by MSc students. The topic of the project can be either in Management or Mechanical Engineering, in which case the topic will usually be closely allied with the research interests of the discipline.
  • Mechanical Engineering at Glasgow is ranked 9th in the UK (Complete University Guide 2020).
  • The School of Engineering has an Athena Swan Bronze Award, demonstrating the school’s commitment to supporting women in scientific studies and careers, and to improving the working environment for all.
