Taught jointly by the Schools of Engineering and Materials Science and Business and Management, the programme draws on the strengths of each to help you develop both engineering expertise and business acumen.
The business modules are designed specifically for this programme, taught alongside other mathematicians, engineers and scientists. You’ll gain an in-depth understanding of the corporate environment, covering financial accounting, projects, entrepreneurship, business analytics, strategy, management and human resources.
Alongside, you’ll study the physical and chemical structure, properties, manufacturing and design of materials.
In the final year you’ll undertake an individual project linked to the current internationally recognised research taking place in the School, applying the theory you’ve learnt in the first two years of study.
I really enjoyed the student-centred learning module. The thought process involved in solving the tasks they set you is really engaging and extremely varied. One week I would be looking at characterisation techniques and the next I would be building a boat. I had a lot of fun with this module and developed a lot of other skills while doing it.
