Professional Accreditations

Our programme is distinguished by recognition from both globally renowned HR professional bodies, the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM) and the Charted Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD). Only four programmes in the UK have achieved this status, two of which are taught by GCU.

Along with developing your knowledge and analytical skills, the placement gives you a realistic view of organisations and the human resource challenges faced. The organisation you’ll be working with also benefits from the findings and recommendations from your investigation.

Study and Assessment

Study Information
We provide a wide variety of support, through tutors and materials, to our students studying by distance learning or on-campus.

Books & Materials
All modules use a range of paper-based and online materials.

Feedback
Students will receive feedback on all assessments as well as responses to specific queries raised during their study of any particular Module. Receipt of any communication will generally be acknowledged within 7 working days and written feedback will be supplied.

Contact
This will be mainly by post, our online 'Virtual Learning Environment' GCU Learn, or by email. The bulk of the contact for each Module will be with the Module Tutor concerned.

Assessment
Assessment will be continuous - a combination of formative and summative assessment. Assessment is by a variety of means - case studies, portfolios, essays and reports. You will be advised of the dates and times on which coursework must be submitted.

Submitting Work for Assessment
Campus-based students will submit a hard copy of any assessment, as well as an electronic copy via GCU Learn. Distance Learning students will submit by email and through GCU Learn.

Career Opportunities

The focus of the degree is on equipping the professional ‘risk manager’. This role neither sets strategy nor runs operations - the professional risk manager (whether in private manufacturing or service industries, local government, healthcare, or non-profit sector) facilitates the risk management process, educates, informs and motivates others to manage risk, and provides expert advice and input on the tools of modern risk management. Job titles vary (risk manager, risk and insurance manager, risk analyst, risk co-ordinator, clinical risk manager) and the emphasis varies from organisation to organisation, sector to sector.

Programme description

The building services engineering profession is a vibrant and important component of both the construction and engineering sectors of industry. The MSc Building Services Engineering is aimed at engineering graduates to enable them to progress towards full chartered (CEng) status.

There is a strong demand for good quality chartered building services engineers who have the wide and multi-disciplinary knowledge that enables them to operate effectively on projects involving diverse technical challenges. Engineers now require a period of postgraduate study after achieving an Honours degree on an accredited BEng programme before they can become eligible for chartered (CEng) status. The MSc Building Services Engineering programme has been designed primarily as a period of further learning to follow an honours degree in building services engineering or environmental engineering.

The programme offers you the opportunity to broaden your knowledge and experience of all technical aspects of building services design as well as providing an understanding of building management.

Assessment

Various methods are used to assess the modules depending on the nature of the module. These include written examination, course work, and oral presentation. Normally there is more than one assessment component in each module.

Professional accreditation

The programme is approved by the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) and the Energy Institute. The MSc and a suitable accredited BEng (Hons) degree will together form the educational base for full CEng status.

Career Opportunities

The design of mechanical and electrical services for buildings of all types is a typical job profile and is carried out within mechanical and electrical design consultancies or within design-and-build construction companies.

Management of building facilities is another common employment destination, or in some cases the management of merchant or naval shipping and associated installations. Equipment manufacturers offer design and marketing opportunities.

Installation and commissioning of equipment and systems also offers technical and management opportunities.

MSc Maintenance Management provides suitably qualified or experienced engineers of all disciplines with, modern cost effective maintenance management techniques for the efficient operation of all types of sophisticated, complex equipment.

Graduates of this programme can expect to find work in the areas of maintenance engineering/management, asset management, condition monitoring and reliability and safety engineering.

Description

Maintenance management has grown and developed into a significant major strategic issue for ensuring effective operation of plant and engineering systems in order to meet business objectives. The programme equips engineering graduates from a variety of disciplines with the knowledge and skills to allow them to become effective maintenance managers in a wide range of industries.

Maintenance plays a major part in ensuring the reliability of systems, planning availability of assets, health and safety, environment and product quality standards, customer service and other important areas. If these issues are not addressed, the survival of many organisations is at risk.

Historically, maintenance has been associated with the cost of labour and spare parts. With the advent of modern technology, maintenance has now evolved from a non-issue to a more strategic concern in most organisations. However, other factors such as reliability and availability, downtime and product quality can be key factors when measuring maintenance effectiveness. In addition, the objectives must be attained in accordance with environmental and safety regulations.

The programme provides suitably qualified or experienced engineers of all disciplines with, modern cost effective maintenance management techniques for the efficient operation of all types of sophisticated, complex equipment.

Why Choose This Programme?

Today’s modern and efficient companies require top level maintenance strategies to match their investment. This impacts many industries particularly the advanced manufacturing technologies, transport industry, food production and the oil and gas industry.

This has resulted in a considerable gap between current maintenance skill set and the required skills and expertise needed to maximise the potential benefits from the use of technologies.

Assessment

The taught modules are either assessed by coursework only or a combination of coursework and examination. In the latter case the final mark is determined by weighted average of the two elements. The MSc project is assessed by project reports, practical operation and an electronic presentation.

Career Opportunities

Graduates of this programme can expect to find work in the areas of maintenance engineering/management, asset management, condition monitoring and reliability and safety engineering.

Recent graduates have gone on to work for employers including Royal Mail, British Petroleum, British Energy, Scottish Power, First Scotrail, Siemens plc, Sellafield, Babcock International Group, Ciba Speciality Chemicals, Allied Bakeries, Alcan and Albion Automotive amongst others.
