The IIM in Engineering will help you to learn the theoretical and practical framework for engineering modelling and develop research methods to tackle engineering problems at postgraduate level. Upon completion you will progress to The School of Science and Engineering. The school has built a long and successful international reputation for excellent teaching and topical research.

For Entry:

  •   One Term: June | September


  •   One Term + Master's: 3 months + 1 year


Our courses are normally delivered face-to-face on-campus however due to the current global crisis, some of our courses are available to start online. Allowing you to start your academic journey to a postgraduate qualification as planned. Information on our flexible study options for IIM courses can be seen here.



Our research in Civil Engineering is top in Scotland and third in the UK (REF 2014)

Course Structure

The one-term is a fast track route to your postgraduate degree in a range of Engineering degrees at the University.

Modules you will study:

Business related engineering course modules:


This module will introduce you to the research methods used to facilitate research activity within the study of Business. You will learn this by actively using scientific methods in planning, undertaking and interpreting research within Business Studies.

The aim of this module is to investigate and assess the impact of different regional, social and political contexts on understanding and operationalising concepts such as Management, Human Resources and Marketing. You will be introduced to current international issues affecting contemporary businesses and provided with a greater appreciation of the role of business within society.

This module will help you to develop a greater understanding of some of the activities involved in managing a business. There is a focus on certain key business functions.

Pure engineering course modules:

In this module you will study analytical techniques alongside computational solutions. You will be equipped for the modern engineering workplace in a range of disciplines.

The aim of the module is to introduce students to the research methods used to facilitate research activity within the study of Engineering. This will involve students considering both quantitative and qualitative approaches to research. Other forms of data collection and interpretation are studied with a view to undertaking a research project within a scientific field of particular interest to the student.
