**Why Warwick?**
The University of Warwick is a world-leading university, born out of boldness, imagination and collaboration. We’ve built a strong reputation for upholding the highest academic and research standards.

Today, more than 27,000 students thrive in a supportive, welcoming space where everything you need to study, live and have fun is close to hand. Explore what Warwick has to offer, and you’ll develop a skillset that sets you apart, and sets you up to succeed. What that success looks like is up to you.

**The course**

This course will appeal to you if you want to study Engineering, but seek an alternative to becoming a Chartered Engineer. Engineering companies need to provide not only superior products, but also superior services to be sustainable in the long-term. There is a real demand for graduates with technical knowledge and strategic business management and entrepreneurship skills. By mastering this you’ll provide the key interface between roles as diverse as design, manufacturing, marketing, contract management and supply chain management.

Reflecting the realities of the multidisciplinary business environment, our curriculum integrates the technical and business contexts you will need to be successful in a wide range of careers. Engineering Business Management students will develop their theoretical knowledge through teaching from both engineering and business schools. In addition, you’ll develop your engineering expertise alongside knowledge of the full range of business functions, equipping you to find your place in an increasingly competitive global marketplace.

You may choose to spend a year in industry, research or study abroad between Years Two and Three. If you choose to study abroad or take a year in industry, this will be reflected in your degree title. We have a dedicated Placement and Internship Officer who can support you to gain relevant work experience through a summer or yearlong placement.

As a mixed subject within engineering where students get a chance to learn from a range of disciplines, this course isn't taken by as many people as some of the more specialist disciplines. Demand for engineering skills is high, though, and so unemployment rates are low and the average starting salary was a very healthy £26,400 for 2015 graduates. Graduates are able to specialise enough to be working in jobs in engineering — especially in design and development - as well as engineering project management. IT and management consultancy were some of the more common jobs outside engineering. Bear in mind that a lot of courses are four years long, and lead to a MEng qualification — this is necessary if you want to become a Chartered Engineer.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
