This Engineering Management for Process Excellence course at The University of Strathclyde combines process performance with strategic business analysis to deliver an in-depth understanding of operational issues in relation to engineering industries. 


Engineering management is a specialised career that brings together the technological problem-solving ability of engineering and the administrative, organisational and planning abilities of management in order to oversee the operational performance of complex engineering driven projects, personnel and initiatives. Engineering management is critical in the delivery of technical products and services.

The Engineering Management for Process Excellence course at The University of Strathclyde is aimed at graduates wishing to broaden their expertise from a technological undergraduate degree, or who want to work within the engineering industry in a management capacity.

The programme will focus on the use and application of techniques that enable production and operational effectiveness. The programme is based within the Department of Design, Manufacturing & Engineering Management, the only department in the UK combining end-to-end expertise from creative design, through engineering design, manufacture and management of the entire system, meaning you will have access to all of the experts in these fields, in one place!


Production/Operations managers are responsible for planning, coordination and control of manufacturing processes in order to make sure goods and services are produced efficiently and that the correct amount is produced at the right cost and level of quality.

Early career managers are required to deal with various aspects of production such as materials management, inventory control, production control and purchasing management. With experience, careers can develop into overall factory management or strategic planning roles.

Using concepts and tools provided, you will develop the skills to analyse and implement solutions for organisational competitiveness.
