Develop engineering expertise alongside knowledge of the full range of business functions.
Our Engineering Business Management degree will appeal to you if you want to study Engineering, but seek an alternative to becoming a Chartered Engineer. This course provides a focus on the commercial and business aspects of engineering.
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 strategic business management and entrepreneurship skills. 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 will develop an in-depth understanding of the classical principles of engineering by following a general engineering programme for the first four terms. Thereafter, Engineering Business Management students will specialise 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.
