Engineering Management MSc
The Brunel Engineering Management MSc gives graduates and professional engineers seeking to move into management the technical skills and understanding of business, operations and strategy to pursue successful careers in engineering management.
You'll get a solid grounding in managerial essentials within engineering including logistics and supply chain management, manufacturing and production systems design, product development, quality assurance and project management.
You’ll also study how finance and assets are managed within a business, the principles of marketing and customer care, and effective teamworking and motivation techniques. Additionally, with an eye on the future, you’ll examine the challenges new technologies pose to management in the engineering sector.
We offer two study options. You can choose one-year full-time or three-to-five-years via our distance learning programme.
This course is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineering (IMechE) and the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) which means your degree will put you on course to gain Chartered Engineer (CEng) status in the UK.
Throughout your studies you’ll have use of our state-of-the-art laboratory facilities and 24-hour access to industry-standard specialist software for engineering design at dedicated computer clusters on campus, so you’ll have the opportunity and equipment to explore ideas and tackle problems.
With the increasing complexity of the engineering sector, job candidates with expertise in business and management as well as engineering are increasingly in demand. Your Brunel MSc will equip you with the knowledge and skills that will make you a sought-after prospect across the industry.

Modes of study
The taught element of the course takes place from September to April. From May to September you’ll conduct an individual project and prepare your dissertation.
Three-to-five-years distance learning
The self-study distance learning programme enables you to conduct most of your studies at home, in your own time and at your own pace.
You have up to five years to complete the course, though the average is three years, with students taking four modules in the first year, four modules in the second year and writing their dissertation in the third year.
You should allow about twelve hours each week for study.
You can sit your examinations either at Brunel University or in the country where you are resident. We have an extensive network of organisations (universities, colleges and British Council offices) throughout the world that can provide invigilation services.
