This MSc in Systems Engineering (Mechanical) and Engineering Management is an excellent opportunity to consolidate and advance your skills and knowledge in systems engineering, with a mechanical engineering emphasis. Graduating from this postgraduate course should increase your employability and enhance your suitability for further research or training options.
Mode of Study:
University of Bolton
Almost every business or organisation has a system to keep things working efficiently and productively. This system might keep information moving securely and efficiently or ensure product distribution or service availability. A systems engineer is the all-important link between complex programming and technology and its users, customers and stakeholders. So, you’ll need a firm knowledge and understanding of both sides, along with the ability to take a joined-up approach to ensure systems meet a wide range of needs reliably, efficiently, and in a user-friendly fashion.
That might sound like a tall order, but it’s a hugely rewarding career path. This master’s degree is an excellent opportunity for you to develop a unique blend of practical engineering and management-orientated learning. Our expert team will support you in building your specialist systems engineering knowledge and skills, focusing on mechanical engineering. Completing this course successfully should make you highly employable in a range of sectors and settings.
The course meets professional institution standards in the UK and Europe and addresses a range of contemporary issues in engineering and engineering management. If you’re looking to take a systems-based approach to engineering management, this course is could be ideal.
Where changes are made to material information contained in this course description or a decision is taken to suspend a course between the offer of admissions and enrolment, we will inform applicants at the earliest possible opportunity and will outline the various options available to the applicant.

We use a blended teaching and learning approach, including case studies, discussions, lectures, tutorials, demonstrations and computer-aided learning sessions. We expect you to be relatively autonomous and self-directed in your studies, but of course, we’ll offer you plenty of encouragement and support along the way. The project aspect of the programme is your chance to integrate and demonstrate the practical and theoretical aspects of the course. The project carries a third of the total marks for this qualification and is assessed jointly by the course supervisor and an external supervisor.
Each module on the programme involves several formal assessments. These contribute to your final grade for the module and your overall master’s qualification. Assessment types are varied but typically include assignments, practical work, projects, oral presentations (including presentations based on your main project) and formal examinations at the end of the programme.
The modules listed below may be a mixture of compulsory and optional. You may not have the opportunity to study all the modules shown as part of the course.
|Level one||Coursework 68%, Practical exams 19%, Written exams 13%|
|Level one||Guided independent study 83%, Scheduled learning and teaching activities 17%|
The university will use all reasonable endeavours to deliver your course as described in its published material and the programme specification for the academic year in which you begin your course. The university considers changes to courses very carefully and the university will minimise any changes. Please be aware that our courses are subject to review on an ongoing basis and changes may be necessary due to legitimate staffing, financial, regulatory and academic reasons.
