If you are able to lead a team or coordinate a large project, multi-task and consider all the factors involved, whilst keeping your eye on the desired goal, then Engineering and Management could be an ideal degree programme to follow.
There are many career routes in engineering, such as civil, electronic or mechanical, and each requires specialist expertise in the chosen field. However, the person responsible for overseeing a mammoth project involving numerous engineering disciplines, must not only have a sound knowledge of each specialism but also the ability to master-plan the whole production; scheduling and distributing tasks, controlling the budget and checking the final outcome meets the client's original business structure.
Exeter's Engineering and Management degree allows you to train in various disciplines but also provides experience, tools and techniques to prepare you for future management positions not only in engineering but also in a wide range of sectors such as communication, transport or environment. On completing this accredited programme you'll become a qualified engineer but with the added benefit of management strings to your bow.
One module is taught by a practising aerospace product development manager who provides a taste of real life in industry by using current projects as examples. At Exeter we also recommend taking a work placement to support your studies and give you cutting-edge industry experience; placing you a step ahead of other graduates.
