About

In the MSc Systems Engineering Management at University of Strathclyde you'll focus on engineered systems, however, many of the skills and techniques you'll acquire are equally applicable to other complex systems such as manufacturing and organisations.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

The aim of the MSc Systems Engineering Management at University of Strathclyde is to develop systems engineering management capability by creating graduates who understand the complexities of the management situations they face, and who can apply systems thinking approaches and techniques to address the challenge of managing the complexity between the technical system being developed and the people and organisations that are responsible.

The management of large complex systems engineering projects demands a unique set of skills that are not taught within conventional engineering or business management programmes.

The programme is based within the Department of Design, Manufacture & 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.

We work in partnership with global companies who have extensive systems engineering expertise. This ensures our teaching is based on the latest research and the skills you gain are cutting edge and relevant. It also enables us to incorporate practical challenges and solutions through your project work with an industrial partner.

Careers

Engineering management blends engineering principles and manufacturing technologies with project management and business, whilst systems engineering considers the combination of complex interrelated systems, as well as the human factors, that make up modern engineering projects.

Industries that lead the development of aerospace, automotive, civil and construction, defence, electronics, infrastructure, and power generation projects have identified that systems engineering management skills are the scarcest in the sector and are a rare commodity in today’s recruitment environment.

Example graduate job titles include:

  • Systems Engineering Manager
  • Systems Engineer
  • Control Systems Engineer
