Course Brief

This course aims to develop a reflective level of understanding in management across a range of contemporary Engineering Management issues including Information management, human resource management, industrial relations, Quality, Supply chains, business development, product policy and product development. In addition this course aims at exposing students to conceptual, practical and managerial level environmental issues, drawing on basic science and engineering principles to assess particular environmental problems and to design solutions that reduce or eliminate environmental impacts.

The course will be taught by a combination of formal lecture and tutorials. Directed learning will take place outside of lectures and tutorials each week, as students will be required to prepare cases and become aware of changes in environment issues. Students will work in groups of 3-5 for the preparation and presentation of an environmental case study. An assignment and case study will also support the learning outcomes.
