The MSc Engineering Management meets a specific skills gap in industry for Engineers with project management skills who can lead on Engineering projects in any sector Focusing on both technical excellence and management ability in equal measure. Our Engineering Management course has been designed in response to the worldwide shortage of engineers with the all-round capability needed to oversee complex projects.
It's a dynamic and demanding programme, combining in-depth technical knowledge with a multitude of personal attributes and business expertise.
This program is for professionals with some industrial understanding that wish to move into project management within the any industry.
The aim of this programme is to equip graduates of an engineering or a numerate discipline with specialist knowledge and skills in Project Management to allow them to effectively control projects for global markets.
The person with this role will create the ‘map’ to successfully achieve the goals of an engineering project. A project manager not only helps to reduce costs, but gives a project flexibility, and can assist with access to new technologies and developments
The MSc Engineering Management programme is normally studied over two years on part-time basis or one year on a full-time basis. The programme is divided into study units called modules. A module is a unit of study with credits according to the subject and nature of learning. Students on the MSc Project Management take 180 credits at level 4. Each module has a credit value of either 30 or 60 credits. Each 30 credit module represents approximately 300 hours of student learning, endeavour and assessment.
The list of modules along with the level, type and credit points are listed below.
The aim of the module is to understand the operation of supply chains in an engineering enterprise and to be able to control the logistical operation. On the completion of the module, the successful student will be able to: Understand the impact of the supply chain on an engineering enterprise, understand how to model a supply chain, make decisions on the use of resources by evaluating costs and schedules to achieve a logistics strategy and critically evaluate the performance of the logistics network on the business.
This module will enable students to understand the scientific methods underlying the modelling of real systems. It will further expand their understanding of a range of sophisticated mathematical techniques and simulation methods using the examples facilitated by engineering systems. Case studies will be used to illustrate how models can be validated against real measurements. Assessment procedures are designed to enable students to deliver academically significant modelling performances.
The aim of this module is to prepare students to be able to apply project management techniques to achieve quality engineering solutions using human and financial resources in a given time frame. On the completion of the module, the successful student will be able to: 1. understand the principles of project management and their limitations; 2. plan a project process including recruitment and managing a project team; 3. be able to make decisions on the use of resources in an engineering project; and 4. evaluate project costs and schedules.
Module aims to develop a student s team working skills in planning and execution of a group product development exercise, drawing on their acquired knowledge from other modules appropriate to their programme. In addition, the module aims to develop a student’s communication skills to enable them to communicate their findings in a written and group presentation.
Taught sessions are held at our Dubai Knowledge Park campus (Block 16, 17, 04 and 19) during the week (Sunday to Thursday) between 6:30pm and 9:30pm. Additional sessions might be scheduled over weekends or holiday periods and you can expect to receive plenty of notice for these. You can expect to attend one session per week per module, except where otherwise specified in the programme timetable and for the Dissertation module in which you will be working individually on your thesis with some supervised elements. Attending scheduled weekly classes is an important requirement for completion of this programme.
You will be actively involved in a range of learning, teaching and assessment approaches as part of your programme. Such active approaches aim to put you at the centre of your learning so you are involved and engaged in all aspects of your assessment and learning. Your programme will require your active participation in learning activities and engagement with your fellow students both individually and collaboratively, working and learning with other students as part of a small group. Learning activities may also occur both within and outside the classroom.
Your learning will also be supported by technology. Increasingly your tutors will be using existing and emerging learning technologies to engage you in e-learning activities. Your programme may be facilitated using a variety of media and online tools (My Learning on UniHub, podcasts, wikis, etc.) which could allow you flexible access to a diverse range of online resources, quizzes and learning materials as well as collaborative tools with which you can engage and learn with your peers.
Not confined by the time and space associated with traditional teaching methods you may take part in online discussions and learning activities from wherever you are studying. By engaging with e- learning you will also be developing skills which are essential for your learning and are also highly valued by employers. These include but are not limited to: working flexibly, communication, understanding of IT, team working and creating shared understandings based on quality resources and access to global expertise.
Taught modules are devised to ensure active learning both of the subject matter and of the skills essential to postgraduate level study. In addition to scheduled class time, students are expected to undertake independent study doing research work, preparing for lectures and seminars and working in groups.
A number of assessment methods are used at Middlesex University, and these vary depending on the content of the modules being taught. Assessment comprises a mixture of coursework, peer review, presentations and portfolio work. For example, you may give an oral presentation, read and comment on an academic article or write an academic essay.
Case studies are used extensively. In addition, each module has a comprehensive range of on-line resources available to enhance your studies with us. You will receive detailed module handbooks each year with information on teaching and learning strategies, assessment methods and reading materials.
Minimum of 2.1 honours degree or an equivalent in an engineering or a numerate discipline. We also consider candidates with other relevant qualifications who can demonstrate relevant work experience in an appropriate field. Candidates without formal qualifications need to demonstrate relevant work experience and the ability to study at postgraduate level.
All programmes at Middlesex University Dubai are taught in English and applicants with previous education outside of English-speaking countries (such as the UK, the United States, Canada, England, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand), must demonstrate English language proficiency as follows:
English Language Test
6.5 (minimum 6.0 in each band)
87 (21 in listening & writing, 22 in speaking and 23 in reading)
Graduates from the programme will be expected to enter into middle and senior management with highly specialised operational skills that are much sought after qualities worldwide. The programme content will be enriched by providing industry engagement opportunities to students through industry speakers and field trips.
Links with the employment market through visiting speakers from relevant sections of the industry; staff with ongoing practical and professional experience all help students in furthering their career goals. Our industry partners offer internships, give visiting lectures, and field visits and attend our Careers Day each year.
Our Careers and Employability Service offers students a range of support both while they are studying with us and after they have graduated/
