School of Engineering

Learn industry-driven skills for your career in engineering management

 
About the school
Arden’s School of Engineering prepares you to address society’s biggest aspirations, putting you at the forefront of the industry and its needs.

A master’s degree in engineering management is the perfect choice for anyone looking to rise up to a senior-level position in the field, providing you with all the skills you need to unlock your professional ambitions.

Our School of Engineering is founded on three main pillars: authenticity, innovation, and industry. We make sure you’re thoroughly prepared to take on the current and future demands of engineering management through real-world practice, using a range of digital-first tools and assessments.

Emerging technological changes and innovations are a major driving force behind the onslaught of large-scale, national and international engineering projects every year. This has resulted in an enormous skills gap in the field, with too few high-skilled managers available to complete the projects at hand. The School of Engineering aims to bridge these gaps by developing work-ready, resilient graduates that are able to tackle today’s challenges from day one. With a focus on experiential learning, you’ll work on live projects and industry briefs, ensuring you gain first-hand experience solving some of today’s global engineering problems.

Our School of Engineering is led by a skilled academic team, all of whom are industry practitioners with years of experience in their respective fields. They’ll be there to guide you through your studies, helping you gain the confidence and capabilities you need to succeed in your future career.

Jonathan left school at 16 years old to work as an apprentice centre lathe turner for V.R. Brooks Ltd. As part of his apprenticeship he studied Mechanical Engineering on a day release basis at Stockport College, completing BTEC ONC and HNC. He then read for a BEng in Mechanical Engineering and the University of Bradford and then a PhD in Laser Materials Processing at the University of Manchester Institute of Science & Technology (UMIST). Jonathan has worked as a Project Engineer and held senior academic posts overseas and in the UK. He has been active in laser materials processing and associated fields of research for 26 years, developing new science and approaches that have yielded seven patents, eight books, 10 book chapters and over 170 international journal papers. 

His research attracts funding from international government sources, and national and international industry; amounting to over £7.6 million since 2001. Jonathan is Editor-in-Chief of Lasers in Engineering and the International Journal of Laser Science.
