January or September start
MSc: 12 months full-time**

**WHY THIS PROGRAMME**

The University of Glasgow has been delivering world-class engineering education and research since 1840. Mechanical Engineering is a core engineering discipline that has a long history in the University dating back to the 1760s with academic contributors such as James Watt.

You will be taught jointly by staff from the School of Engineering and the Adam Smith Business School. You will benefit from their combined resources and expertise and from an industry-focused curriculum.

If you have a mechanical engineering background, but with little management experience and are wanting to develop your knowledge of management while also furthering your knowledge of mechanical engineering, this programme is designed for you.

You will learn to understand management principles and practices in an engineering environment, evaluate engineering information and apply business and management tools. You will combine engineering and management knowledge and skills in projects and problem solving.

The programme is split into two semesters and a summer session. One semester will be based in the Adam Smith Business School and is aimed at developing knowledge and skills of management principles and techniques. An applied approach is adopted, with an emphasis on an informed critical evaluation of information, and the subsequent application of concepts and tools to the core areas of business and management.

During the other semester there will be a combination of compulsory and optional courses that will combine to provide the required credits in Mechanical Engineering.

In the summer session, a project will be undertaken by MSc students. The topic of the project can be either in Management or Mechanical Engineering, in which case the topic will usually be closely allied with the research interests of the discipline.

This programme has a September and January intake*.

*For suitably qualified candidates.

**PROGRAMME STRUCTURE**

There are two semesters of taught material and a summer session working on a project or dissertation for MSc students. September entry students start with management courses and January entry students with engineering courses.

**Semester 1**
You will be based in the Business School, developing knowledge and skills in management principles and techniques. We offer an applied approach, with an emphasis on an informed critical evaluation of information, and the subsequent application of concepts and tools to the core areas of business and management.

**Core courses**
- Contemporary issues in human resource management

- Managing creativity and innovation

- Managing innovative change

- Marketing management

- Operations management

- Project management.

**Semester 2**
You will study engineering courses, which aim to enhance your group working and project management capability at the same time as improving your depth of knowledge in chosen mechanical engineering subjects.

**Core course**
- Integrated systems design project.

**Optional courses**
- Desalination technology

- Dynamics

- Materials engineering

- Vibration.

**Project or dissertation**

You will undertake an individual project or dissertation work in the summer period (May–August). This will give you an opportunity to apply and consolidate the course material and enhance your ability to do independent work.
