University of Sussex
Engineering Business Management
A 1st- or 2nd-Class undergraduate Honours degree in engineering, mathematics or physics.
The course structure includes 5 core modules in business and management topics: Accounting and finance for managers; global business; management innovation and organisational performance; managing complex projects and systems; strategic management. In addition, you choose 4 options from a range that depends on the pathway chosen, for example: Advanced engineering pathway options: Advanced digital signal processing; advanced manufacturing technologies; advanced topics in control of electromechanical systems; cybernetics and neural networks; image processing; managing intellectual property; marketing analysis and financial strategic planning; satellite and space systems. Advanced Mechanical Engineering pathway options: 2 options from the Advanced Engineering pathway, above, and 2 options from: Advanced thermo fluids; advanced turbo machinery; computational fluid dynamics; finite element analysis; gas turbine cycles and turbocharging; heat transfer applications; mechanical dynamics; testing and modelling for auto power systems. Communications pathway options: 2 options from the advanced engineering pathway, above, and 2 options from: Advanced digital communications; advanced microprocessor systems; advanced networks; fibre optic communications; mobile communications; RF circuit design. Following the summer examinations, you work full time on your MSc project based on a real-life problem to which you apply the knowledge and skills acquired across your studies of business management and engineering.
Modules are assessed by a range of methods, including laboratory reports, essays and unseen examinations. The MSc project is assessed typically by an interim report, a presentation and a substantial dissertation. Some projects are undertaken in groups and replicate the type of professional teamwork expected in industry. Topics are generated from the academic research and industrial collaborations in the Department, and the project is supervised by a member of faculty.
