This Engineering Management Masters at University College Dublin offers a unique opportunity for engineering students to deepen their knowledge of the areas of business and management and is open to engineering students of all disciplines.


This Engineering Management degree at University College Dublin is aimed at students who have already completed a bachelor’s degree in Engineering and wish to embark on successful careers in the management of global engineering and technology firms. This one-year master’s degree provides grounding in operations, quality, marketing, systems planning, and analysis while building on students’ technical expertise to develop the next generation of industry leaders. 

We seek to develop creative problem solvers who can critically analyse problems in a business context, and propose and develop practical and feasible solutions. Our teaching methods and learning environment are highly interactive and varied, and include lectures, workshops, tutorials, labs, and practical exercises. Group-based modular projects and a final applied company-based consultancy project enable students to integrate the covered theoretical knowledge with practice. All these unique features are the key elements in the programme’s design and success over the years.


Career opportunities are very broad as the MEngSc Engineering Management students are not narrow technical specialists but “T-shaped” individuals combining specialist skills with a broad understanding of the business environment. 

Apart from the usual engineering discipline-specific job opportunities based on their bachelor’s degree, the students accomplishing this one-year master’s degree will be equipped with enough knowledge and experience to pursue a career related to the job positions, such as quality analyst, data analyst, operations analyst, supply chain planner, project management and continuous improvement analyst.
