We blend lectures with seminars, practical exercises, labs, case studies, simulations, and industrial games to encourage teamwork and practical grounding of the course material. Technology enabled learning, e-learning and forum activities also support classroom learning. Class sizes are kept small with around 30 students in each, to encourage interaction. Larger scale lectures are delivered for some modules and are backed up by seminar and syndicate activities.

Contact Hours:

40 hours per week during module weeks (9.00am – 6.30pm).

There are 9 x modules over the course of the year. Between modules, you will have workshops, supervisor meetings, industrial visits, and will be working on Post Module Assignments and your dissertation.

Class Sizes:

Lectures: up to 200 students

Seminars and the majority of classroom based modules: 30 per class

Workshops and other syndicate activities: 6-8 per group


There are no written exams. After each module you will be assessed by a written post-module assignment (PMA). This typically requires 40 – 60 hours of work and consolidates your learning. Some modules will also include an in-module individual or group assessment or test.

  • 9 x Post Module Assignments (3,000 – 4,000 words each) (50% of Master’s credit)
  • 20,000 dissertation (50% of Master’s credit)

Graduates can expect to be employed as leaders of business development, manufacturing, quality assurance, human resources or customer service in a wide variety of manufacturing or service organisations, particularly where technology plays a significant part in business success.

"Warwick really changed me as a person."

"I was leaving home for the first time so was told a campus university would make me feel at home: they were right! I liked that Warwick gave you the options to pick modules in your first year so you gained an understanding of the different possibilities and options available to you in engineering. There was a big buzz around internships and the careers fairs that Warwick held gave you the extra push to think about your next steps, with a wide range of employers attending. The engineering mind set helps you to logically break down problems, and I regularly rely upon this skill in my current role as a Vice President for Credit Suisse."
