Program Overview

The engineering sector is key to the UK economy contributing over one quarter of the UK’s GDP – that’s over £420 billion*. In an industry founded on innovation and enterprise, the career opportunities are excellent for those with advanced research and problem solving skills. Moreover, the highly competitive, globalised market ensures that there’s a strong need for engineers with business acumen, and the project management skills that can support these enterprises to bring products to market. The University of Bolton’s MRes in Engineering Management skilfully brings these elements together, so if you’re an ambitious engineering or technology graduate seeking to develop research and business skills this master’s degree should prove an excellent investment in your future.

This MRes is designed to support you to gain the theoretical knowledge needed to solve technological problems by applying analytical techniques, along with the strategic and operational business management skills required for commercial success in the engineering sector. Our expert staff will guide you as you gain postgraduate research, problem solving, and critical thinking and evaluation skills. You’ll explore the essential elements of business management, including leadership, human resource management and marketing, and develop essential skills such as communication and time management. You’ll also have a choice between studying project planning and management or exploring integrated management systems and techniques for quality, sustainability, lean and innovation.

We’ll guide you as you attend work placements (either through existing employment or organised short duration placements) where you’ll collect the data and information that will form the basis of your dissertation. By focusing on the problem solving techniques, research methods and theories relevant to the investigation of complex engineering business and management problems, we aim to prepare you for success in engineering management roles in this essential industrial sector.

The course is designed to meet professional institution standards in the UK and to support you to achieve Chartered Engineer (CEng) status.
