Why study this degree at UCL?
The programme from University College London (UCL) blends general principles of management with technology-focused teaching and integrates aspects of systems engineering and project management; the UCL Mullard Space Science Laboratory has nearly fifty years’ experience of developing cutting-edge spacecraft technology, and the programme content builds on research conducted by the Technology Management Group at MSSL in these areas.
The programme contains two compulsory modules relevant to leadership and entrepreneurship (Technology Strategy, and Business Environment). These modules will give students the knowledge and skills necessary to lead new technology-driven enterprises.
The curriculum has an international focus, with case studies from major technology companies around the world including Apple, Samsung and Lenovo. A number of industrial visits are anticipated and this ‘real world’ exposure to organisations will help contextualise the theory and techniques learnt.
UCLse has strong links with companies in the aerospace, communications, construction, energy, transport and defence sectors and our Industrial Advisory Board ensures relevance to industry.
Typical career destinations might include:
- Graduate Systems Engineer or Project Manager (Airbus, London Underground, BAE Systems, Boeing, GE, GDUK, Leonardo, THALES, Ultra Electronics)
- Technology/Business Consultant (Accenture, Capgemini, Deloitte, Ernst & Young, KPMG, PwC).
Drawing on our experience of providing short training courses for industry (such as the Project Manager training courses we run for the European Space Agency) we will integrate a large amount of skills development into our teaching, including skills in communication, negotiation, leadership and motivation, decision-making, and managing complex, time-constrained tasks, all of which will be beneficial for future careers.
