Learning and assessment
Your learning experiences will be varied, with a mixture of:
- formal lectures
- tutorials and seminars
- group work
- an individual research project
Independent study is supported by our Virtual Learning Environment, Canvas. Reading lists and suggested resources for independent study provide you with clear direction, while regular contact hours and informal feedback throughout the programme provide you with additional support.
The development and delivery of the MSc in Engineering Management is research-informed as the academic staff involved in the programme have research and practical expertise in relevant management areas.
The excellent external relations that the Faculty has with businesses, industry, and relevant organisations are engaged in the continuous improvement of the programme.
We also apply an inclusive and diverse learning culture in our programmes of study.
You will have a Personal Academic Tutor, normally your individual project supervisor, to support you through regular meetings and interactive activities, acting as an independent source of advice and guidance on making the transition to Higher Education and assisting you with any questions or problems you may encounter.
In addition to standard study support through taught sessions, our Virtual Learning Environment allows you to access resources, participate in group work and submit work remotely.
University central services are rich with support teams to assist you with every aspect of your journey through our degree programmes. From our Careers Service, through our strong Student Union, to our professional and efficient Student Finance team, there are always friendly faces ready to support you and provide you with the answers that you need.
Our research underpins every level of your programme of study. You will be taught by academics who are working at the forefront of their engineering discipline. This enables us to explore with you how theoretical principles are being applied to solve real-world challenges.
Your individual project gives you access to our research facilities and provides you with an opportunity to become involved in a much larger research project being carried out with our Research Groups and industrial partners.
