What you'll study

The programme will equip you with the tools and techniques to effectively manage teams, projects, departments and companies and will cover the following themes.

Strategic thinking

Develop an advanced understanding of key strategic issues involved in developing and implementing engineering projects and solutions.  Learn to consider the implications of organisational structures, manpower, logistics, risk management, employment law and finance alongside technical feasibility during decision making. 

Lean thinking

Develop the ability to identify key factors that influence operational costs and delivery. Through the application of techniques such as Lean, identify opportunities for improving efficiencies and eliminating waste as a means of improving competitiveness and business efficiency.

Quality Management

Quality is one of the significant factors throughout engineering. Understanding measures, philosophies, cultures and improvement methods is critical to improving business performance.  It is essential for executives to have a sound understanding of what is involved in quality improvements from a technical perspective.

Project planning

Understanding constraints and requirements of projects such as implementing a new production process or product development.  The selection and use of appropriate project management techniques such as Agile, Prince2 and ITIL is a key factor in success. 

Supply Chain Management

Developing an awareness of relationships within the supply chain and implications of pricing and purchasing policies along with the logistical challenges related to the flow of raw materials and goods.
