Our BSc (Hons) Engineering Management degree is a work-based distance learning programme which offers you the opportunity to gain a recognised university qualification whilst remaining in employment.
This work-based distance learning (WBDL) programme is designed to provide those working within the technical environment, and commonly already holding technical qualifications, the management skills to effectively and efficiently manage their work areas.
Engineering Management has parallels with Industrial and Systems Engineering which is concerned with the design, improvement and installation of integrated systems of people, materials, information, equipment and energy. The degree draws upon specialised knowledge and skill in the mathematical, physical, and social sciences together with the principles and methods of engineering analysis and design, to specify, predict, and evaluate the results to be obtained from such systems (IISE, 2017).
The programme offers the following key features:
- A blended learning approach, drawing on University of Lincoln expertise in delivering online programmes to part-time students in employment
- An innovative and creative approach in teaching, learning and assessment, drawing on a range of digital and technological learning tools
- A learning experience offering students a wider critical perspective on the consequences of individual decisions and actions and on the ethics of being socially responsible, including corporate social responsibility, part of Lincoln International Business School's 'responsible futures principles'.
- A clear focus on the student experience and academic, pastoral and professional support and care.
The BSc (Hons) Engineering Management degree has been designed to allow students who have completed a Higher National Diploma (HND) in an Engineering subject or equivalent to undertake the programme. It presents a distance-learning framework designed to enable students to complete the programme within a two year period. The duration will reflect each individual's personal circumstances, accredited experience, prior learning and work commitments.
