Overview

The career of an engineering project manager is an exciting and challenging one - overseeing complex projects, taking charge of teams and delivering on time and on budget. Yet there's a worldwide shortage of graduates who have the elusive combination of technical knowledge and the management capability that such a demanding role needs. This Masters degree was created to meet that demand.

Why study the MSc Engineering Management with Integrated Placement (15 months/24 months) at Middlesex University?

This in-depth, technical and practical course is designed specifically for those students who have studied engineering at university level and are looking to develop an advanced mastery of the subject.

Middlesex University is the only institution in London to offer a course in engineering project management and our strong links with such industry giants as Ford, Jaguar Land Rover, Mitsubishi, BAE Systems, IBM and Siemens, means that you will be studying a highly relevant degree with up-to-date research and practices.

This course offers an extensive hands-on experience, with practical work incorporated into every module. You'll work alongside professionals on industry-sponsored projects, go on site visits and attend lectures by guest speakers. Instead of a thesis you'll work on a team project designed to resemble a real-life industry scenario.

You will have access to technology, software, studios, laboratories and workshops which are well-equipped with specialist and industry standard software. You'll also have the opportunity to work towards a Prince2 Certification as part of your studies.

If you do not wish to study the full MSc, you can apply to the PGDip where you study only four modules or a PGCert where you study only two modules.

Course highlights

  • Our teaching staff are internationally renowned for their research expertise and include Dr Andrew Tizzard, a former design engineer with Ministry of Defence contractor Rank Pullin Controls
  • The course is supported by the National Centre for Project Management. Based at Middlesex the centre carries out research into project management and provides training for professionals, working with organisations including BT, HBOS, Morgan Stanley and Fujitsu.
  • As a student of this course you'll receive a free electronic textbook for every module.

As part of this course, you can do an optional three month or one year industry placement.  Programmes with integral placements give you the opportunity to apply the skills you have learned throughout your studies in a practical environment. You will be earning a full time salary and will learn skills that can't be taught in a classroom at University. During the placement, you will be able to gain further insight into industrial practice that you can take forward into your individual project and into your future career.

Although the placement is not guaranteed, the University maintains links with a wide network of organisations who offer placement opportunities. The University will also provide you with full support to help you secure a placement, from job application to the interview.

In order to qualify for the placement period you must have passed all modules in the semesters preceding the placement. The placement will take place after you have completed all your modules and undertaken your final applied project.
