Financial Accounting, Management Accounting.

This course consists of two modules:
Financial Accounting and Management Accounting.  The purpose of the course is to provide an overview of financial and management accounting concepts and analysis of financial statements. The course is user-orientated rather than procedure-orientated, and has a focus on engineering applications and endeavours.  It is taught as a block course at the beginning of the programme, to ensure students have the tools necessary to underpin the remainder of the curriculum.

Learning Outcomes

  • Knowledge
    Financial Accounting:  Students will have an understanding of the reporting framework and the accounting equation.  They will understand the construction of financial statements, and be able to analyse them and interpret their findings.

    Management Accounting:  Students will have an understanding of management accounting theory and practice, including: costing and pricing of products and services; budgeting for planning and control; performance measurement.

  • Skills
    The course objectives are to enable students to understand general purpose financial statements, appreciate their limitations, and be aware of the forces that influence their content.  By the end of the course, students should be able to:

    - Recognise, read and use any of the common management accounting reports
    - Prepare, or provide the necessary information for the preparation of budgets
    - Cost current or proposed products, and know the contentious issues that will need to be addressed

  • Application
