Course Overview

Our BSc (Hons) Engineering Management degree is a work-based distance learning programme which offers you the opportunity to gain a recognised university qualification whilst remaining in employment.

Part-time: 18 to 24 months

This work-based distance learning (WBDL) programme is designed to provide those working within the technical environment, and commonly already holding technical qualifications, the management skills to effectively and efficiently manage their work areas.

Engineering Management has parallels with Industrial and Systems Engineering which is concerned with the design, improvement and installation of integrated systems of people, materials, information, equipment and energy. The degree draws upon specialised knowledge and skill in the mathematical, physical, and social sciences together with the principles and methods of engineering analysis and design, to specify, predict, and evaluate the results to be obtained from such systems (IISE, 2017).

The programme offers the following key features:

  • A blended learning approach, drawing on University of Lincoln expertise in delivering online programmes to part-time students in employment
  • An innovative and creative approach in teaching, learning and assessment, drawing on a range of digital and technological learning tools
  • A learning experience offering students a wider critical perspective on the consequences of individual decisions and actions and on the ethics of being socially responsible, including corporate social responsibility, part of Lincoln International Business School's 'responsible futures principles'.
  • A clear focus on the student experience and academic, pastoral and professional support and care.

The BSc (Hons) Engineering Management degree has been designed to allow students who have completed a Higher National Diploma (HND) in an Engineering subject or equivalent to undertake the programme. It presents a distance-learning framework designed to enable students to complete the programme within a two year period. The duration will reflect each individual's personal circumstances, accredited experience, prior learning and work commitments.

This flexible-learning programme can be tailored to individual needs and circumstances and provides an academically rigorous learning environment within which students have the opportunity to extend skills, expertise, knowledge, vision and personal/career development by:

  • Engaging in independent learning, reflective debate and practice, supported throughout by a module tutor and a range of resources.
  • Focusing on theoretical aspects of business and management, offering the opportunity to apply theories and concepts to the workplace, developing knowledge in addition to developing a range of skills and abilities.
  • Gaining an understanding of the dynamic nature of modern organisations and the environment within which they operate by applying module content to management situations within the workplace in increasingly integrated and systematic ways.

The programme presents a framework within which students may engage in personal and professional development by integrating the development of knowledge, skills and experience, whilst simultaneously contributing to organisational effectiveness.

This programme is designed to be flexible and dynamic enough to reflect and absorb change and facilitate the student's acquisition of a range of skills and knowledge that may be needed to rise to the challenges of the contemporary workplace.

The programme presents a distance learning framework to enable individuals to complete the programme within a two year period - the duration reflects personal circumstances, accredited experience, prior learning and work commitments.

The programme centres around work-based learning, which is not just the development of knowledge and a set of technical skills, but reflection and learning from experience. Application to context and evidence of application is central to the learning process as learning is seen as arising from action and problem solving within a work environment, centred around live projects and challenges to individuals and organisations.

An assignment brief will explain the intended learning outcomes and requirements relating to each assessment. The work-based focus of any project or assignment will involve negotiation and agreement between the student and the module tutor.
