A-1 Technical Training, Logis-Tech Associates will support a student’s application as this is a very much sought after course and places are limited each year.

The BSc (Hons) Engineering Management degree is a work-based, distance learning degree and aims to break down the barriers between learning at work and learning at university. The programme takes into account the high levels of skills and learning that are demonstrated every day in the workplace and provides a degree framework to support and accredit this learning.

The course is open to all suitably qualified candidates and offers an opportunity to transfer your academic qualifications and work experience to achieve a degree in Engineering Management. The programme includes modules in Study Skills for Distance Learning, Reflection and Reflective Practice, Change Management and Applied Problem Solving in the Engineering Workplace.

The BSc (Hons) Engineering Management degree is a ‘top-up’ course. The first one and two years of the course are accredited through previous academic qualifications and/or relevant professional experience. This distance learning degree can take between 13 months and 2 years to complete, depending on your individual circumstances and work commitments.

Level 3

Study Skills for Distance Learners The module provides students with a structured framework within which to develop the essential skills for distance learning. You will be encouraged to take personal control of your learning and to balance the freedoms and disciplines inherent in a distance learning environment. Using models of theory and practice embellished by your personal experience, you will develop your ability to self-motivate, manage your own studies and reflect on how you learn. You will evaluate theories and practical models to challenge and to expand on received wisdoms to support both your academic and practical development.

Integrating Professional Engineering Experience Reflection as a technique for aiding and reinforcing learning is a powerful tool in professional development and a wide range of learning environments. Reflective practice is about learning and developing, through examining what we think happened on any occasion and how we think others perceived the event. The manager must open their professional practice to the scrutiny of others, becoming a more effective manager as a result. At an organisational level critical reflection is the basis for maintaining the appropriate alignment of an organisation and forms the basis for strategic planning and organisational change.

This module will provide you with a structured framework within which to reflect on experiences during previous formal managerial training or within past and present Engineering working environments. You will be encouraged to develop your own abilities to practice reflection in the practical arena by critically evaluating your own ideas against academic theories and models, challenging and expanding your own individual management skills. You will facilitate this process through the production of a personal Learning Log, individual reading and study, and face-to-face or online discussion with your tutor.

Management of Change This module aims to enable you to develop your workplace skills in the management of change by investigating your own organisation in relation to change management from a number of perspectives. You will consider your organisation’s business and market position— how it is structured and how it operates—to understand the context within which change happens. You will consider how organisational structure and culture may support or inhibit change as well as evaluating management of change theoretical models. You will also explore the impact of change on people and the skills needed by effective change agents and organisations.

Upon completion of the module, you will be able to use your learning to inform a study of change management in your organisation and to make recommendations about change strategies for the future.

Applied Problem Solving in the Engineering Workplace You will look at some more unusual approaches to the solving of complex problems and at techniques used outside your own organisation and experience in this module. At an early stage you select a complex problem in your workplace to study throughout the unit and you will be expected to develop, integrate and apply your learning, ideas and techniques in a real practical context.

The module aims to provide students with: •An understanding of the nature of complex problems, including problems with unknown or unpredictable features •A range of advanced skills that will equip you to solve complex problems in the workplace •Experience of applied complex problem solving in the workplace.

Dissertation The dissertation provides you with the opportunity to demonstrate your capacity to work independently on a major piece of research and to utilise and build on skills and subject expertise developed in the promotion of your professional and personal skills. You will demonstrate your ability to analyse problems and to apply appropriate professional and self-developmental skills.

You will work with your tutor to research, develop and present your study for assessment following the agreed formats prescribed by the University.

Electrical Machines

You study electrical machines and cover all the major machines: DC, induction, and synchronous, as well as some special machines including stepper and variable reluctance motors.

You also perform in-depth investigations into machine performance and operation characteristics, in both analytical and experimental methods, using laboratory setups and software packages (Pspice & Matlab) for the analysis of DC and AC machine performance during practical sessions.

Electronics

To extend the depth of your understanding of analogue electronics, especially in the context of integrated circuits, this module covers the interaction of circuit segments (loading), temperature dependence and device variability, and how to robustly design around these problems.

You use the ‘library’ of common configurations to build larger circuits and to see how integration and component matching facilitates complex general and application-specific circuits, with examples drawn from the variety of analogue devices currently available.

Laboratories enable you to perform analysis, simulation and synthesis of relevant circuit configurations, both using components on Breadboard and by simulation in SPICE.

Engineering Design

The aim of this module is to give you an opportunity to experience the process of carrying out a design project. It will enable you to appreciate that design involves synthesising parameters which will affect the design solution.

Safety Engineering

This module covers the fundamentals of contemporary Safety Engineering as applied to industrial processes. It consists of an introduction to the terminology, the nature and treatment of hazards, hazard analysis, risk assessment, emergency procedures and the application of protective measures associated with various hazards.

The main aims of the module are to provide a firm foundation for work in Safety Engineering and to act a basis for more advanced studies of safety practices.
