We educate people to understand the bigger picture, encouraging students and delegates to implement new ways of thinking. We have been educating the leaders of tomorrow for over thirty years and we have seen over 28,000 individuals studying with us on a full-time or part-time basis, in the UK and abroad. In the academic year 2012/2013 we awarded over 900 Master’s degrees and around 400 Professional Awards. Our educational offering now covers all stages of the education pathway, from school students, to undergraduates and postgraduates, to senior professionals. This provides a clear progression route for those wishing to study engineering or management and to establish a career in academia or in engineering, manufacturing or technology-led commercial organisations. The majority of our academic and teaching staff have industrial or business backgrounds, which translates into innovative courses with real world applications. Being awarded the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education in 2009 was a tremendous honour and highlights that our philosophy of providing academic excellence with a clear business focus is a winning formula. WMG Academy for Young Engineers The development of two WMG Academies for Young Engineers is part of the Government-backed initiative for University Technical Colleges. WMG’s two exciting new learning campuses will cater for 14-18 year-olds from Coventry, Warwickshire, Solihull, and Birmingham, giving students the skills they need to become the UK’s future inventors and engineers. We will work alongside some of the largest employers in the region to deliver a dynamic curriculum, underpinned by a 12 www.wmg.warwick.ac.uk radical learning and teaching approach designed around the needs of both students and employers. Undergraduate Programmes Our full-time undergraduate degrees (taught in partnership with the School of Engineering) enable students to benefit from a range of expertise and facilities. Learning from staff who teach internationally and who also have immediate access to our research base enables students to reach their highest goals, both personally and through teamwork. For example we have multidisciplinary student teams competing annually in competitions across the world, including the IMechE’s Formula Student Competition at Silverstone, the EV Grand Prix at Purdue (USA), the European International Submarine Race, and International Robocup Rescue in Germany. Our part-time undergraduate degree, the Applied Engineering Programme, enables employees of engineering and technology-led companies to obtain a Bachelor’s in Engineering whilst working, and gives companies the opportunity to develop their workforce through access to key skills and latest thinking. Full-time Master’s Programme Our Full-time Master’s programme delivers a challenging and rewarding academic experience to over 700 students per year. We welcome students from 60 different countries each year, who study with us for our expertise and innovative teaching methods. Students engage practically with their studies and are well equipped upon graduation to apply their knowledge and competences in the workplace. Our integrated and flexible portfolio of Master’s degrees is designed to develop skills in management and leadership for students with a technical background, or those wishing to work within technology based organisations. We are continually developing our offering and have recently added programmes in Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Cyber Security and Management, and Service Management and Design. The modular structure of the programme gives students an extensive range of business and management, operational, and technical subjects to choose from. Interactive lecturing is supported by real-life case studies, industrial games, syndicate exercises and small group projects which enable the theory and academic content to be put into context. Alongside the academic programme, we offer industrial visits to local, national and international companies. Guest speakers from industry and government are regularly welcomed and students have the opportunity to attend lectures and seminars from distinguished researchers. Education Education
