Engineering Management course overview

This IMechE and IET accredited course has been designed to provide graduates with a unique blend of engineering and management understanding and knowledge. The aim is to provide graduates with a skill set which will allow them to directly interface between the technical and business aspects of a company.

Core material is a blend of management studies, business organisation, engineering and technology terminology and principles. Teaching modules include 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.

Students also have the opportunity to spend a monitored year in industry after the second year of academic studies, and be awarded a Diploma of Professional Studies or the Diploma in International Studies if they have worked outside the UK.

Facilities

STEMLab is a £17 million investment in new state-of-the-art laboratory facilities and part of a wider £25 million investment in our campus which includes an adjacent student learning and teaching hub.

STEMLab will include a suite of laboratories for practical work in Bioengineering, allowing students crucial opportunities to gain applied experience with biological samples in a safe and modern environment.

Coming soon! Brand new STEMLab

Take a virtual tour of STEMLab, a state-of-the-art laboratory facility arriving for our students in 2017. It forms part of a wider £25M investment in the West Park of our campus, the home of our Engineering Schools.

Assessment

Teaching and learning methods include lectures, tutorials, practical work, seminars and extensive project work. The emphasis is placed on increasing your independence and encouraging you to develop your study skills while taking part in group activities.

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.

For an indicative overview of the aims, learning outcomes and structure of this course please see the programme specification.

Selection

Applicants are selected on the basis of their UCAS application. In some cases we may invite applicants for interviews in order to assess academic potential beyond that provided as part of the application. We hope that all applicants would take the opportunity to visit the department, meet staff and students, see facilities and get an insight into what it is like to be a student at Loughborough.

Practical Science

Practical Science is not required.

Course fees 2017/18

UK/EU fee: £9,250   |   International fee: £19,900

Placement year fees for 2020/21 are still to be confirmed. As an indication, for 2017/18 the current placement fees are set at 20% of the yearly full-time fee for UK/EU students and £3,000 for international students.

Sponsorships and scholarships

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.

Competitive scholarships are also awarded. These may be based on intake qualifications and/or progress through the first year of any of the degree courses.

Graduate destinations

Graduates will be self-reliant and able to contribute and manage well in team situations, and will have gained the technical ability and commercial awareness to be able to work in industrial or commercial environments.

Typically, graduates will have an understanding of the language of engineering, closely tied with the business, management, legal, intellectual property and economic principles.

Industrial training and placements

We are the UK’s number one university for engineering placements sending over 45% more students on placement than any other university (2013 HESA student record).

All of our courses can be taken with a salaried industrial placement in Year 3. Successful students receive an additional awarded; a Diploma of Professional Studies.

We are notified of vacancies and opportunities throughout the academic year, and we provide support and help for you to gain a suitable placement.

Students work in a variety of organisations including automotive, aerospace, electronics, consumer goods, computer software and food processing industries.
