Management and HRM for Engineers
In this module we look at how to manage people and projects successfully. The assessment for this is an online multiple choice quiz and a group project. For the group project we are given a fictional company that is suffering Human Resource Management (HRM) problems for which we must apply managerial methodology and schemes learnt in the lectures for how the company can overcome the problems and progress. This must be done in the form of a 15 minute video, treated like a formal proposal to the company as if we were consultants. We have a compulsory tutorial session every other week where we learn about some of the schemes in more detail and how they can be applied, as well as getting to know the group we are working with for the project.
