MSc Engineering Management

Course Overview

In many engineering organisations ERP is the main software system application that controls and assists in the management of all functional departments and the whole facility, often globally. This unique programme has a UK and global appeal for career development and future plans are currently being developed to offer SAP ERP certification. It satisfies both the operations management and continuous improvement (CI) elements within engineering, and the application of ERP systems such as SAP and/or Oracle. Many companies use ERP within the supply chain including Terex, Tata Steels, RollsRoyce, Honeywell, Audi, and BMW.

This programme will develop the skills you need to interface with functional users, other than engineers, giving you an informed view for further configuration or customisation.

Academic entry requirements

It is expected that students will enter this programme having completed an engineering degree such as engineering management, mechanical engineering, electrical, electronic, mechatronics, design engineering or product design.

The expectation is for a degree at first or second-class Honours from a university (or equivalent) in engineering, technology, business or a related discipline.

Candidates with lesser qualifications, such as a pass degree in engineering, who have appropriate professional or industrial experience, may also be eligible for entry to the Postgraduate Diploma. The expectation for these candidates is at least four years’ industrial experience. On successful completion of the Postgraduate Diploma you would be invited to join the MSc programme.

English entry requirements

IELTS score of 6.0 overall with no less than 5.5 in any subcomponent. UWS will also consider applicants who have previously studied at degree level, taught and assessed in English, in what UKVI define as a majority English-speaking country.

Assessment methods

Assessment is principally by coursework assignments, laboratory investigations and examinations. You will also be expected to present your work to internal staff and external industrialists as part of the learning and assessment process.

Progression route

Further academic study of DBA, PhD or other research degree or Professional career.

Career opportunities

Graduates are equipped for the next step in their career in manufacturing and service operations. Most business organisations that implement ERP solutions use fully-trained, qualified implementation partners and consultants throughout their lifecycle. There is demand for graduates who have had some initial education and training and hands-on experience in ERP solutions such as SAP.

Businesses, ERP solution providers, and consulting organisations require top calibre trained ERP consultants and users. UWS graduates who are trained in ERP and supporting materials will possess a unique skill-set that will be a differentiator when competing in the employment market.


Core topics include ERP, continuous improvement and operations management with options of Total Productive Maintenance (TPM), Project Management and modules with further planning and management of resources.

Students will also be exposed to existing staff research interests when completing their MSc Dissertation encompassing several areas including Construction management, Digital Technologies, Sensor Technologies, Hydromechanics, Concrete Research and Structural Engineering.

MSc students undertake a dissertation, selecting a specialism to achieve a greater understanding of the implementation and advanced use of software applications, management initiatives and planning within an engineering setting.

There may be scope to integrate this dissertation with industry, where an engineering supervisor will be allocated to assist your MSc journey and to advise and introduce you to industry links.
