MSc Systems Engineering Management

MSc in Systems Engineering Management

The Systems Engineering Management MSc has been specifically designed for the needs of engineering professionals working in the field of complex systems development. The programme encompasses not only the technical tools and approaches needed to build success in this area, but also the management dimension of the relevant processes.

 
MSc Technology Management

MSc in Technology Management

The Technology Management Group of UCL's Mullard Space Science Laboratory (MSSL) and UCL Centre for Systems Engineering (UCLse) have pooled expertise to develop this exciting programme, which equips students with the knowledge and skills necessary to develop a career in technology management or engineering management.

MSc Complex Projects

MSc in Management of Complex Projects

In today's fast-moving, global marketplace, traditional project management techniques based around strategic planning and control are not enough. Many modern projects are not only complicated (tough technical problems needing co-ordination across many suppliers) but also complex (with unclear requirements). The new Management of Complex Projects MSc has been designed to produce project managers equipped to lead the most challenging of projects.
