About the Module

AC51005 will have students develop a commercial market understanding that complements technical and computer science knowledge and an understanding of product management. Ultimately, students will have an understanding of the roles of product development and product marketing and the potential career path of product development for engineers.

The module is a mix of case studies, practical exercises and theoretical topics. The theoretical topics will be delivered by business professionals and staff from the University. There will be a number of case studies which will involve entrepreneurs giving a talk about their work, how they develop products for the market, and how they market these. We are hoping that their enthusiasm will ignite the class and provide a unique view of the business world.
