This course will be appropriate if you are a practising engineer and wish to enhance your technical expertiseand update your managerial performance. Much of the course involves developing and measuring your competences and current achievements against the national NVQ standards for the industry. Many companies have recognised that by raising the managerial profile of their engineers and enhancing professional competence, the standards of the whole company will improve. Several companies have adopted our model after identifying the spin-off benefits to the company in communication and performance. You begin by following a general management qualification, the Certificate in Management before progressing to the diploma level. This stage involves one managerial module, a Research Methods module and two engineering electives. To gain the MSc you will also need to complete a dissertation. You should be able to gain funding from your local Training and Enterprise Council for gaining the NVQ levels.
