Innovation and Technology Management

The course is designed for engineering, science and management graduates who are looking to develop an in depth understanding of innovation and technology management concepts and methods, and the skills to apply these in real life. The programme provides a strong background in the technical aspects of innovation and technology management whilst offering an underpinning in business and management studies. Whilst other programmes address the management of technology from either a technical or a management perspective, the programme combines both, integrating the 2 disciplines to ensure students have the necessary skills to manage across boundaries. This makes it a suitable programme for graduates wishing to bridge the gap between engineering and management.
