Engineering Management Partnership (EMP)

Learn from the best academics and industrial consultants. Enhance your future career potential. Join the EMP programme to change the way you think and act at work.

 

Many engineering companies have responded to global competition and become more strategic. They are getting better at analysing customer behaviour, producing quality products on time and on budget. To sustain these improvements, high calibre “engineer managers” are needed. 

 

Our aim is to take individuals out of technical and management “silos” and to give them these general management and leadership skills so they can take action to radically improve the performance of their departments and organisations.

 

We believe that learning in the workplace is the best way to develop these skills. Full-time programmes often disconnect learning from the reality of the working environment and do not provide the opportunity to address directly critical business issues within companies. Our action learning approach emphasises the need for a reflective process.
