Career Prospects

Introduction
The business and management skills developed through the programme are highly sought after by employers keen to recruit engineering graduates with a solid appreciation of the broader commercial industrial environment. Professionally relevant transferrable skills, such as oral and written communication, problem-solving, data analysis, self-direction, and team work are also developed throughout the course.

Queen's postgraduates reap exceptional benefits. Unique initiatives, such as Degree Plus and Researcher Plus bolster our commitment to employability, while innovative leadership and executive programmes alongside sterling integration with business experts helps our students gain key leadership positions both nationally and internationally.

Learning and Teaching

The taught modules are normally each delivered in ‘block mode’ over a four week period. In the first two weeks students engage in seminars, tutorials and hands-on practical workshops. In the final two weeks students carry out independent tutorial study and assessed coursework activities, either individually or as part of a group.

Additional Teaching Information

The taught module content will be supplemented by guest seminars from industrial experts in the fields of engineering and business management. These modules are assessed through a combination of practical workshop sessions, independent coursework, and group projects.

Indicative Proportional Mix of Time in Classes, Tutorials/Seminars/Labs, and Private Study in a Teaching Semester

Typically, about 50% of contact teaching time is scheduled for classroom teaching, with the remaining 50% scheduled for tutorials and practical workshops. Most modules will also devote a portion of this time to other activities such as computer practicals, case studies and invited speakers.
