Mechanical engineering

Production and manufacturing engineering

Engineering Management (BEng) is concerned with the management of engineering principles within a business context. It allows the problem solving elements of engineering to be blended with project planning, management and organisational elements of companies, taking simple and complex projects from idea to delivery.Core material is partnered with a broad range of business and management modules, providing graduates with an ability to manage across a range of engineering and technology disciplines. The priority is to interface and integrate these key activities with the business organisation and financial management of companies large and small, national and global.Engineering companies involve complex chains of materials and supplies procurement, tiered suppliers, production processes and customer delivery, alongside the technical expertise of the different engineering disciplines.Business models and frameworks apply equally to engineering disciplines as well as other commercial sectors, with the management of legal and contractual requirements, and human resource commitments.Our IMechE and IET accredited BEng Engineering Management degree programme provides graduates with an understanding of basic engineering sciences and manufacturing processes. This allows the students to develop a solid foundation of engineering and technology vocabulary and understanding.The material is equally partnered with a broad range of business strategy, business organisation, human management, resource management and project planning modules, which provide the graduates with the skills to manage across a range of engineering and technology disciplines. The priority is to interface and integrate these key activities with the business organisation and financial management of companies large and small, national and global.

Modules

Year 1 and 2:
Areas studied include electronics and electrical technology, engineering and management modelling, engineering science, manufacturing, materials, mathematics and statistics, marketing and operations management.

Final year:
Areas studied include engineering management, an individual project, lean operations, organisation structure and strategy, product innovation management, project management, and sustainable manufacturing and product design.

Assessment methods

Lecture based modules are assessed by a combination of coursework and formal examinations taken at the end of each semester. Project module assessments require written reports and technical presentations, preparing you for your subsequent career. The proportion of coursework assessment is approximately 30% to 50% depending on degree course, semester/year and optional modules.

Extra funding

All of our courses have an established reputation with employers in industry. Companies, therefore, target the School with sandwich year opportunities and a number of companies offer sponsorship, for which there is intense competition. Students seeking sponsorship are urged to consult publications such as CRAC and Engineering Opportunities.

Students studying many of our Engineering degree courses, and intending to take up a career in the Armed Forces or Civil Service, may be eligible for financial support under the Defence Technical Undergraduate Scheme.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

We're short of engineers in a lot of areas and mechanical engineering is no exception. Mechanical engineers are in demand across multiple industries, with vehicle manufacturing most popular, with roles especially common in design and manufacturing. Other important sectors include aerospace, the oil and gas industry, consultancy and defence. Jobs are all around the country, with London, the Midlands, Scotland and the South East the most likely places for a new mechanical engineer to find work at the moment, and starting salaries are good. Although large employers are much the most likely place to get work, some of the most challenging, cutting edge jobs are with small niche engineering firms, so keep your eyes peeled if you want something a little different. Bear in mind that a lot of courses are four years long, and lead to an MEng qualification — this is necessary if you want to become a Chartered Engineer.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

Graduates are in significant demand, so unemployment rates are well below the national graduate average and starting salaries are well above average. Much the most common industries for these graduates are now vehicle manufacture - there are not enough people with these degrees to go round and so the big employers tend to take the lion's share at the moment. But pretty much anywhere there is manufacturing, there are production engineers. Bear in mind that a lot of courses are four years long, and lead to an MEng qualification — this is necessary if you want to become a Chartered Engineer.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
