DIng in Engineering Management The purpose of the qualification is to develop an engineer with advanced abilities in applying fundamental engineering management sciences and/design and synthesis,and related principles independently to specific management systems problems of society at large. One of the main objectives in this process is to develop an advanced capability to conduct fundamental independent systems engineering and management research of an original nature. It also promotes a lifelong learning approach and an aptitude for training other students in similar fields. Qualification outcomes Exit level outcomes: The qualified student will be able to: Identify, assess, formulate, interpret, analyse and solve engineering research/development problems independently, creatively and innovatively by applying relevant advanced fundamentalknowledge of i.e. Engineering and/or Engineering Management Sciences in the chosen field of research. Plan and manage advanced engineering research project(s),demonstrating fundamental knowledge, understanding and insight into the principles, methodologies and concepts that constitute socially responsible (to local and other communities) engineering research/development/management in the chosen field of research practice. Work effectively,individually or with others,as a member of a team, group,organisation and the community or in multi-disciplinary environments in the chosen field of research. Organise and manage him/herself and his/her activities responsibly, effectively, professionally and ethically, accept responsibility within his/her limits of competence,and exercise original judgment based on knowledge and expertise, pertaining to the field of research. Plan and conduct advanced investigations, research and/or experiments of an original nature by applying or developing appropriate theories and methodologies,and perform data analysis and interpretation. Communicate effectively, both orally and in... [-]
