This programme isdesigned for people with a background in science or engineering who are interested in developing the skills needed to meet the challenges of integrating technology, management, economics and policy. Although the programme straddles the boundary of business and government and has a strong common core taken by all students on the programme it features 2 main pathways: public sector and private enterprise. The programme is centred on six core courses, assessed predominantly by examination. In addition, students will take a total of six electives: two skills or sectorial electives; two enterprise stream electives (focusing on the public sector or private enterprise); and two open electives (drawn from other skills, sectorial, and enterprise stream electives; or from a select list of other electives). During the Lent and Easter terms students will produce a written report for their final group project, which will be based on a placement at a major public or private sector technology-intensive organisation. The final group project is double-weighted.
