University of Greenwich
Campus Part time 3 - 5 years September 2016 United Kingdom Medway

Most science and technology undergraduate degree programmes typically do not reflect the growing multidisciplinary characteristics of the modern business enterprise. However, our degree programme in Engineering Business Management is designed explicitly to provide a solid technical background combined with an understanding of modern business and management practices. [+]

Best Part time Bachelors in Engineering 2016. CEOs of large, successful companies and self-made millionaires are more likely to have studied on an engineering degree programme than any other subject area. The technical knowledge, analytical and mathematical skills, and creative problem-solving attitude gained from an engineering degree are well suited to strategic and enterprise-level roles in industry. This degree programme offers a broad-based approach, introducing the major engineering disciplines to provide a solid background in the principles and processes used to solve complex problems. Engineering skills you will acquire, such as optimisation and simulation, are directly transferable to enterprise management. Approaches to systems-wide engineering solutions are also highly relevant to many large-scale industrial challenges as both involve the need to identify, understand and design for large, interconnected networks of stakeholders. Our degree programme in Engineering Business Management also enables you to acquire management skills, both personal and interpersonal, together with knowledge of modern management techniques and business applications. The first year of all of our engineering degree programmes at the University of Greenwich focuses on the understanding of engineering science fundamental principles. This approach ensures that all of our graduates experience a solid foundation of broad technical knowledge and a working understanding of all the major Engineering disciplines – an essential prerequisite for a successful career in engineering management. At the end of the 1st year, students will be invited to choose to either continue on their initial degree programme or to swap to any of the other engineering degree programmes on offer. We feel it is very important that our students are empowered to be able to choose the degree programmes that are most appropriate for their ambitions and goals and we recognise that those may change during your studies with us as you learn more about each discipline. Engineering at the University of Greenwich. Quality. Industry. Rigour. Who is this course for? Engineers are problem solvers by nature. They are curious, creative, innovative, and practical about how things work and the world around them. They have the desire to help people and improve the world around them. They are driven by the desire to make the best, the fastest, the most efficient, the most sustainable. Students on this degree programme will typically be those who are interested in how businesses can benefit from the application of engineering principles to all aspects of their operations. The ability to break a problem down into its components, identify, develop and evaluate possible solutions for those components, and then integrate again into a cohesive whole is a particular challenge. It is for students who see engineering in a much broader context than the traditional view of simply designing and building things. Fundamental engineering principles are applicable in a much wider range of contexts, especially management, and the degree programme in Engineering Business Management allows you to learn how they can be applied at an enterprise management level. If you have ever stood in a queue and thought “This queue would move so much faster if they organised the queue this way,” then this is the degree programme for you.
