Engineering for many years has been regarded as an ideal background for a career in management, business or commerce. The accountancy profession, for example, recruits many engineering graduates because they have strong numerical and quantitative skills combined with a sound understanding of industry.
Engineering and Business Studies combines a broad study of engineering and technology, provided by the School of Engineering, with a sound introduction to the world of business, delivered by the Warwick Business School.
The skills acquired will open up a wide range of graduate career opportunities for management or administrative positions within industry or commerce. The degree is ideally suited to those candidates who have an interest in science and technology as well as business and who do not necessarily wish to become a professional engineer.
In the past, graduates from the Engineering and Business Studies degree have gone on to work for leading engineering companies and city firms as investment analysts, management consultants, accountants or industrial relations managers. They have also been successful in gaining places on highly sought-after graduate training schemes with top graduate employers.
