We will teach you to develop a computer simulation model, identify inputs, verification and validation, running experiments for an optimised outcome, and results analysis. You will have the opportunity to use specialist software, and develop the understanding required to transfer the knowledge to other software, models and contexts.

Individual Project Proposal

The aim of this module is to provide preparation for a student to undertake a substantial individual project. Successful completion of the module will require methodical planning, record keeping and self management, effective communication and delivery of report.

Manufacturing Process Improvement

As manufacturing companies are continuingly striving to remain competitive in a global market, it is imperative that they have the knowledge to ensure that their processes operate as effectively as possible. We aim for you to gain an understanding and knowledge of process improvement approaches, their importance in business performance and application, covering the philosophies, tools, systems and techniques associated with Quality and Lean Management. We place some emphasis on the motor industry because the industry is at the forefront of competitive manufacturing developments.

Engineering Project Management

Introduces you to project management and aims to equip you with skills, both human and technical, to lead and work on a variety of projects. We focus on the importance of project management scheduling skills, quality and estimating standards; you will be encouraged to see the role of the project manager within the broader perspective of strategic business management, understanding where projects come from and why they are selected. We also cover the use of project management software like MS Project for creating, analysing and monitoring projects, reinforcing the theoretical teaching.

Supply Chain and Logistics Management

Provides a broad understanding and knowledge of the strategic and operational role of Supply Chain and Logistics Management, relevant to manufacturing, construction, engineering or other technological industrial operations. You will compare supply chain and logistics operations in a variety of scenarios, helping you to recognise how a company achieves competitive advantage through its logistics and supply chain management and be able to make suggestions for improvements where appropriate.

New Product Development Strategies

Aims to help you to develop integrated product, technology and manufacturing strategies through appreciation of company-wide, functional issues. We will cover how to identify and appraise business and functional strategic options around new product introduction, so that you can select the most appropriate for the business to enhance performance, productivity and lead to consumer/customer satisfaction.


Job satisfaction and remuneration are high for graduates who are educated in both engineering and business management, especially for individuals who are able to link theory and practice through the right blend of underpinning knowledge, skills and capabilities.
