“Since starting my degree in BSc Engineering Management, I have been promoted from a Manufacturing Engineer to a Support Manager of Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery Ltd. I believe that this promotion came as a result of not only my achievement during my time working as a Manufacturing Engineer, but also due to the Organisational Management skills I developed from my studies. I found the course work is interesting and more importantly relevant to my current work activities. The Change Management, Organisational Cultural and Structural subjects within my course are particularly beneficial to my career advancement and for that I would like to thank all the course tutors at the University of Lincoln.” Darren Atkinson, BSc Engineering Management
