Welcome to BSc (Hons) Engineering Management

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.

Teaching and Learning During Covid-19

Information for Offer Holders Joining Us in Autumn 2021

Letter from Head of Department of Management

We are delighted you are interested in joining us at the University of Lincoln and I am writing to let you know about our planning for the new academic year. You currently have an offer of a place at the University and we want to keep you updated so you can start preparing for your future, should you be successful in meeting any outstanding conditions of your offer.

We fully intend your experience with us at Lincoln to be engaging, supportive and academically challenging. We are determined to provide our students with a safe and exciting campus experience, ensuring you benefit from the best that both face-to-face and online teaching offer. We have kept our focus on friendliness and community spirit at Lincoln and we look forward to your participation in that community.

As you know, the UK Government has published its roadmap for the easing of Covid lockdown restrictions in England. There are still some uncertainties for universities around possible restrictions for the next academic year, particularly in relation to social distancing in large-group teaching. We are planning in line with government guidance for both face-to-face and online teaching to ensure you have a good campus experience and can complete all the requirements for your programme. We are fully prepared to adapt and flex our plans if changes in government regulations make this necessary during the year.

Face-to-face teaching and interaction with tutors and course mates are key to students’ learning and the broader student experience. Face-to-face sessions will be prioritised where it is most valuable, particularly for seminars, tutorials, workshops, practicals and lab sessions. Students tell us that there are real benefits to some elements of online learning within a blended approach, such as revisiting recorded materials and developing new digital skills and confidence. At Lincoln we aim to take forward the best aspects of both.

This letter sets out in detail various aspects of the planned experience at Lincoln for your chosen subject area, and we hope the information is helpful as you plan for your future.

Teaching and Learning

Within Lincoln International Business School (LIBS) we are planning to maximise face-to-face teaching for your seminars and for any module where numbers are small enough to run workshops and some lecture content safely. We also know that students have really valued being able to access our lectures remotely, you can learn anywhere but still engage in a live taught session, asking your lecturer questions in real time. You also don’t need to feel nervous asking a question out loud as you might in a large lecture theatre. These online sessions will also be recorded for you to replay or view later if you miss them. We will continue to record attendance for both face-to-face and remote events.

For our face-to-face events, you are likely to engage in group discussions, you might undertake exercises, practical demonstrations and give presentations from work you have prepared in advance for classes. These sessions are also flexible for you to ask questions of fellow students and your lecturers to help your learning. They are also a great way to make friends and maintain relationships with fellow students on your programme. We will continue to monitor the situation regarding Covid and take feedback from yourselves as students, always following government advice and direction, so our plans could see an increase in the face-to-face events we hold. We will, however, continue with some more blended and flexible provision so we maximise the number of students who can access as many of our learning events, anywhere and as often as possible.

The University Campus

We are very proud of our beautiful and vibrant campuses at the University of Lincoln and we have used our extensive indoor and outdoor spaces to provide students with access to study and social areas as well as learning resources and facilities, adapting them where necessary in line with government guidance. All the mitigations and safety measures you would expect are in place on our campuses (at Lincoln, Riseholme and Holbeach), such as hand sanitisers, one-way systems, and other social distancing measures where these are required.

Student Wellbeing and Support

The University’s Student Wellbeing Centre and Student Support Centre are fully open for face-to-face and online support. Should you, as one of our applicants, have any questions about coming to Lincoln in October or any other concerns, these specialist teams are here for you. You can contact Student Wellbeing and the Student Support Centre by visiting https://studentservices.lincoln.ac.uk where service details and contact information are available, or if you are in Lincoln you can make an appointment to meet a member of the team.

To enable you to make the most out of your experience in Lincoln and to help you access course materials and other services, we recommend that you have a desktop, laptop or tablet device available during your studies. This will enable you to engage easily with our online learning platforms from your student accommodation or from home. Students can use IT equipment on campus in the Library, our learning lounges, and specialist academic areas; however, there may not always be a space free when you have a timetabled session or an assessment to complete which is why we recommend you have your own device too, if possible. If you are struggling to access IT equipment or reliable internet services, please contact ICT for technical support and Student Support who can assist you with further advice and information.

We are committed to providing you with the best possible start to university life and to helping you to prepare for your time with us. As part of this commitment, you can access our Student Life pre-arrival online support package. This collection of digital resources, advice and helpful tips created by current students is designed to help you prepare for the all-important first steps into higher education, enabling you to learn within a supportive community and to make the most of the new opportunities that the University of Lincoln provides. When you are ready, you can begin by going to studentlife.lincoln.ac.uk/starting.

Students’ Union

Your Students’ Union is here to make sure that you get the most from every aspect of your student experience. They will be providing a huge range of in-person and virtual events and opportunities - you are sure to find something perfect for you! Meet people and find a new hobby by joining one of their 150 sports teams and societies. Grab lunch between teaching or a drink with friends in The Swan, Towers or The Barge. Learn new skills and boost your CV by taking part in training courses and volunteering opportunities in your spare time. Grab a bike from the Cycle Hire and explore the city you will be calling home.

To start off the new academic year, your Students’ Union will be bringing you The Official Lincoln Freshers Week 2021, with a huge line-up of social events, club nights, fayres and activities for you enjoy (restrictions permitting). Keep an eye on www.facebook.com/lincolnfreshers21 for line-up and ticket updates, so you don’t miss out.

Most importantly, your Students’ Union will always be there for you when you need it most; making sure that your voice as a student is always heard. The SU Advice Centre can provide independent advice and support on housing, finance, welfare and academic issues. As well as this, your Course Representatives are always on hand to make sure that you are getting the best from your academic experience. To find out more about the Students’ Union’s events, opportunities, support and how to get in contact go to: www.lincolnsu.com.

Student Accommodation

Many applicants will choose to live in dedicated student accommodation on, or close to, campus and you may well have already booked your student residence for the upcoming year. All University-managed student accommodation will have our Residential Wardens in place. Residential Wardens are here to help you settle into your new accommodation and will be offering flatmate and residential support activities throughout the year. If you have booked University accommodation, you will have already heard from us with further details on where you will be living to help you prepare. If you have not yet booked your accommodation, we still have plenty of options available. In the meantime, lots of advice and information can be found on the accommodation pages of our website.

The information detailed in this letter will form part of your agreement with the University of Lincoln. If we do not hear from you to the contrary prior to enrolment, we will assume that you acknowledge and accept the information contained in this letter. Adaptations to how we work may have to be made in line with any future changes in government guidance, and we will communicate these with you as necessary. Please do review the University’s Admissions Terms and Conditions (in particular sections 8 and 9) and Student Complaints Procedure so you understand your rights and the agreement between the University and its students.

We very much hope this information is useful to help you plan for the next step in your academic journey, and we look forward to welcoming you here at Lincoln this Autumn. This is the start of a new phase and will be an exciting time for all of us. If you have any questions, please do email me at joannasmith@lincoln.ac.uk.

The module provides a framework for the development of self-awareness and emotional intelligence in relation to others, and interpersonal and social processes as they impact on personal and organisational effectiveness. Furthermore, an introduction to the concepts of Transactional and Transformational Leadership enables you to develop a conceptual understanding that is grounded on personal experience.CoreFinancial Concepts 2021-22MGT2275MLevel 52021-22CoreIndependent Learning Skills 2021-22MGT2276MLevel 52021-22CorePrinciples of Project Management 2021-22BUS2040MLevel 52021-22This module aims to provide a solid foundation in the theory and best practice of project management, with the aim of developing the practical skills of how to plan, implement and control projects. The module provides students with the chance to develop an understanding of the system perspective on management and a practically oriented introduction to the nature and purpose of project management and its key functions (scope, time, cost, quality, risk).CoreTeamwork and Mentoring 2021-22MGT2277MLevel 52021-22CoreWork Based Project 2021-22MGT2278MLevel 52021-22CoreCritical Enquiry Skills 2021-22MGT3265MLevel 62021-22This module aims to equip students with appropriate knowledge and skills to enable them to engage critically with their studies, and the Independent Research Project in particular.CoreEngineering Systems Design 2021-22MGT3271MLevel 62021-22This module introduces students to system design concepts and tools, and challenges students to think critically about their potential and actual application in Engineering. Students are introduced to the engineering of systems design from an operations perspective, which will focus on two functions in particular, directing operations and designing operations.CoreEngineering Systems Management 2021-22ENM3094MLevel 62021-22This module aims to introduce students to issues of managing systems in Engineering. This consideration takes a systems approach and challenges students to identify and consider their operations and services as (interacting) systems and to look at the tools available to organise and manage such systems. It uses some of the approaches of Management Sciences (e.g. Operational Research and Management, Industrial engineering, business statistics and project management) and requires students to identify how these relate to their own Engineering experiences or expectations.CoreIndependent Research Project 2021-22MGT3262MLevel 62021-22The dissertation is the capstone project of the programme. It provides students with the opportunity to apply, integrate, and deepen the knowledge, insights, and skills that have learned throughout the programme of study. The focus of this project should be a real-world issue or a research topic. Whilst it is intended that most students will complete a work-based research project, in keeping with the ethos of our programmes, this module seeks to enable and facilitate innovation and creativity. Therefore, the format of the final assessment can be negotiated with the supervisor, dissertation coordinator and programme leader.CoreCoaching and Mentoring 2021-22MGT3270MLevel 62021-22This module introduces students to coaching and mentoring as an approach to organisational performance improvement. Coaching can be understood as facilitating someone to reach their own potential to maximise their own performance, helping them learn rather than telling them.OptionalHealth and Safety Management 2021-22MGT3272MLevel 62021-22This module introduces the creation of effective management systems for safe and effective work environments. This module looks to develop existing compliance knowledge, asking students to evaluate the policies and procedures in place within their organisation designed to achieve compliance. Students are encouraged to explore and question current processes in order to develop their own management skills, with emphasis on the human element rather than paperwork. It involves the application of a number of techniques which combine both knowledge and problem-solving skills.OptionalIntegrating Leadership and Management Experience 2021-22MGT3263MLevel 62021-22This module is designed to develop and assess students ability to reflect critically on leadership and management professional practice and experiences. The expectation is that academic theory and literature will be critically reviewed and applied to the professional experience and organisational context to allow for personal development planning.OptionalManaging Distribution Logistics 2021-22LOG3183MLevel 62021-22This module builds on the Strategy Supply Chain module to focus on the operational functions which empower and enable the adopted strategic position.OptionalManaging Humanitarian Logistics 2021-22MGT3269MLevel 62021-22Natural disasters (such as floods, droughts, earthquakes, hurricanes, and famine) and man-made disasters (such as wars, conflicts, and refugee crises) have increasingly impacted communities and nations around the world in recent decades, and forecasts suggest that the trend will continue. The purpose of this module is to develop the skills needed to manage the supply chain and the associated logistics functions within a natural or man made disaster.OptionalManaging Operations 2021-22MGT3268MLevel 62021-22This module aims to prepare students to work at the operational level within the logistics sector and looks to enable students to apply attributes, tools and techniques of operational management whilst working within the business strategy. The use of the transformation process is explored to identify the links between the resources, the organisational process and the customer. This provides an insight into operational stakeholder and customer management techniques.OptionalManaging Projects 2021-22MGT3264MLevel 62021-22In this module students have the opportunity to develop a solid foundation in the theory and best practice of project management, and can develop the practical skills of how to plan, implement and control projects. The module aims to provide students with an understanding of the system perspective on management and a practically-oriented introduction to the nature, purpose and standards of project management and its key functional objectives (scope, time, cost, quality, risk and flexibility). The role and qualities of the project manager and the composition of the team are also evaluated.OptionalStrategic Innovation and Opportunity Creation 2021-22MGT3279MLevel 62021-22The Strategic innovation and opportunity creation elective has been designed so that upon completion of the module participants will be able to both identify, recognise and use entrepreneurial and intrapreneurial skills gained through the research and study of both theory and practice, and use these to create a value driven entrepreneurial business plan, or business case project plan. The module aims to equip students with a broad depth and range of enterprise and innovation theory which forms a foundation of knowledge on which to build a creative idea, either as a new business, or as a new project within an existing business. Researching an area or idea will form the main focus, upon which students will examine their target market/customer and both relate and synchronise them to offer value to the customer, either as a new business, or as a new project they will research a proposed innovation or value added outcome delivered within an existing business. It also aims to reflect the entrepreneurial learning process which informs how entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs learn from previous mistakes. Adopting this route does not confine the participants to the confines of small or medium business and its associated and related activities; it aims to examine the rise in popularity of third sector organisations of which the social entrepreneur plays a large role. It also supports the full development of entrepreneurial skills and sensitivities for use in existing organisations large and small, to facilitate the management of change and/or the achievement or organisational goals. In addition, it will prepare the student for involvement in inter-organisational relationships and joint ventures requiring the mobilisation of entrepreneurial skills and knowledge.Optional

How you are assessed

The programme centres around work-based learning, which is not just the development of knowledge and a set of technical skills, but reflection and learning from experience. Application to context and evidence of application is central to the learning process as learning is seen as arising from action and problem solving within a work environment, centred around live projects and challenges to individuals and organisations.

An assignment brief will explain the intended learning outcomes and requirements relating to each assessment. The work-based focus of any project or assignment will involve negotiation and agreement between the student and the module tutor.
