Engineering Business Management


Business Management

Develop engineering expertise alongside knowledge of the full range of business functions.

This course will appeal to you if you want to study Engineering, but seek an alternative to becoming a Chartered Engineer.

Engineering companies need to provide not only superior products, but also superior services in order to be sustainable in the long-term. There is a real demand for graduates with technical knowledge as well as the wider aspects of strategic business management and entrepreneurship. By mastering this you’ll provide the key interface between roles as diverse as design, manufacturing, marketing, contract management and supply chain management.

In the same way as our other engineering undergraduates, those studying Engineering Business Management spend their first four terms studying general engineering concepts. The course then specialises in engineering business related subjects, equipping students with the business and management skills they need to operate in a global economy. Teaching draws on the expertise of the School of Engineering, which delivers the highest standards of technical expertise; WMG (Warwick Manufacturing Group), which offers innovative links between academia and industry; and Warwick Business School (WBS), which is internationally recognised for excellence in business management.

Come and see for yourself what Warwick is all about! Our University Open Days give you the chance to visit the School of Engineering, see the facilities, meet staff and students, tour the campus and get a real feel for life at Warwick. If you apply to study at Warwick and are subsequently made an offer, you may also be invited to an Offer Holder Open Day.

We offer flexible degree programmes that enable you to experience a range of engineering disciplines before you decide to specialise.

All first year students study a general engineering programme, which is much favoured by industry. In the second year, you continue to study the same core modules as all other students until the end of term one, after you which you can specialise.
