How you will learn

For new and returning students in September, our focus is on making our university environments safe and accessible to everyone.  We’ve prepared a 'blended model' of teaching which means combining face-to-face sessions on our campuses with online lectures. All face-to-face sessions are in line with distancing rules. If students are ill or shielding, we’ll provide all lectures and course materials online.

Ready for September

Teaching

In a typical week, learning takes place through a combination of lectures and seminars. You'll be abe to discuss and develop your understanding of topics covered in lectures in smaller group session, Scheduled contact activities may fall between 9am and 9pm, depending on your elective courses and tutorials.

Class sizes

For specialist modules, our class sizes are restricted to around 20 students in lab sessions and 40 in lectures to ensure a great learning experience. The close interaction between students and staff creates a level of familiarity which is key to everything we do.

For modules common to a suite of courses, class sizes can be larger and would typically be broken down into smaller tutorial / project groups.

Independent learning

Outside of timetabled sessions, you'll need to dedicate time to self-study to prepare for coursework, presentations and exams. Our library and online resources with support your further reading and research.

Overall workload

Your overall workload consists of scheduled learning activities which will include online lectures, online and on campus discussions, workshops and practical sessions.

For full-time students, the workload should be roughly equivalent to a full-time job. For part-time students, this will reduce in proportion with the number of modules you are studying.

Assessment

On this course, students are assessed by take-home exams, coursework and practice assessments on campus where required.

Each course has formal assessments which count towards your grade. Some courses may also include 'practice' assessments, which help you monitor progress and do not count towards your final grade.

Careers and placements

Will I have a work placement?

The industrial year is an opportunity to put into practice the knowledge and experienced you gain during your first year. 

The industrial placement provides a valuable opportunity to work in state-of-the-art industrial laboratories. You gain advanced knowledge of leading techniques and processes and how these are applied in an industrial context, which contributes to your professional development as a scientist.

How long is my placement?

To complete the MSc with Industrial Practice, you must complete 11 months of full-time industrial experience.

Mentors

A workplace mentor supports you throughout your placement year, helping you to set objectives and goals, and ensuring you receive appropriate training. 

You are also allocated an academic mentor, who monitors your written work. The academic mentor will visit or arrange a video call with you and your workplace mentor at least once during the placement year to ensure it is running smoothly.

What sort of careers do graduates pursue?

The course is aimed at experienced industry practitioners who wish to complement their academic knowledge and obtain professional recognition in key management areas of private industry or the public sector internationally.

Graduates can pursue management careers in the public and private sectors, including technology, engineering design and product development, manufacturing production, and supply chain (particularly in the fields of engineering management).

Do you provide employability services?

Our Faculty careers team provides support and guidance to students and we work with a partner organisation that specialises in helping to secure an industrial placement opportunity. However, it is your responsibility to secure a work placement in your second year. This could be with a local or international employer in a relevant industrial sector. 

If a placement is not secured, it is still possible to graduate with an MSc in Engineering Management without Industrial Practice.

Support and advice

Academic skills and study support

Every student will be allocated a named personal tutor chosen from the teaching team, who will also act as a mentor as appropriate. The core teaching team has a well-established tutorial process at undergraduate level and postgraduate level. 

The course leader will introduce each student to his/her personal tutor and full contact details and office hour information will be provided. Workplace mentors are also allocated in second year.

Support from the department

New students receive all the essential information over the first few weeks, notably during faculty and department inductions in the first week. This induction will also help you learn about the local area and the academic and social environment.
