What is Engineering Management?
In the past, the areas of engineering and management were regarded as two very different and unrelated areas. Trained specialists undertook the process and technical aspects of engineering, while a different type of person altogether, often with an unrelated background and experience, oversaw the management of an engineering business or technical processes.
Times have certainly changed; new skills and new approaches are required of a staff that has the responsibility to make the most of their hi-tech processes. The need for a new kind of manager has been heightened by the new international nature of most businesses. There is an increasing demand from customers to deal with people familiar with the technical aspects of a product and who are also experts in business management and customer relationships.
Degrees in Engineering Management
Graduates with the ability to understand both complex technological processes and the art of management are increasingly sought after in today’s industrial world. An MSc University degree in Engineering Management seeks to educate tomorrow’s managers to have a range of valuable skills. With the demand for a wide range of graduate engineers increasing internationally, more opportunities have emerged in the professional area of managing the very different processes related to modern engineering.
Is an Engineering Management degree for me?
A University degree which combines these two different academic areas is ideal if you are interested in the technical and problem-solving aspects of any kind of engineering but you don’t necessarily want to confine yourself to either a course looking at one single area or the career of an engineer. Engineering Management options are also very flexible, so they represent a good choice if your ambitions are not clearly defined quite yet.
What are the career prospects for an Engineering Management graduate?
The breadth of content in all Engineering Management MSc degrees means that there is considerable scope for career opportunities and flexibility. The good grounding in engineering allows students to qualify for most professional engineering streams should they choose this route; whereas the management content provides the opportunity for graduates to seek employment in the broad management and commercial fields. In both cases, the skills developed during the program will make you attractive to a range of employers in fields as diverse as the construction industry, finance, product development, and management consultancy.
