MSc Innovation & Technology Management (delivered jointly with Dept of Mechanical Engineering)

Qualifications and duration

  • Full-time MSc, 1 year


Delivered jointly by two of the University’s top ranked departments, the School of Management and the Department of Mechanical Engineering, the MSc in Innovation and Technology Management is designed for engineering, science and management graduates who are looking to develop an in-depth understanding of innovation and technology management concepts and methods, and the skills to apply these in real life. The programme provides a strong background in the technical aspects of innovation and technology management whilst offering an underpinning in business and management studies.

Whilst other programmes address the management of technology from either a technical or a management perspective, the Bath MSc in Innovation and Technology Management is unique through its combination of both, integrating the two disciplines to ensure you have the necessary skills to manage across boundaries. This makes it the ideal programme for graduates wishing to bridge the gap between engineering and management.


Please see the School of Management website for details on scholarships.
