Engineering Management is about the application of management theories to real engineering problems, situations and businesses.
Our research addresses the skills and knowledge needed for personal development within higher education; transitioning to and within employment; continuing professional development (CPD) and entrepreneurship and intrapreneurship.
We're interested in constructing the knowledge necessary to develop skills needed for real world applications, how they are stated, how they are taught and how they are measured.
We also explore how university education prepares students for careers in industry and employment, and the problems in preparing an engineering syllabus that excites students while also developing their transferable skills and technical competence needed for real applications. Supporting this, we investigate skills definition, pedagogy and assessment in engineering education.
