Learning, Teaching & Assessment

The course begins with a Professional Development Audit (PDA), where we help students evaluate what they have done previously and what they need to add to gain the MSc and qualify for CEng. Based on the PDA, the student and Aston University set up an individual Learning Agreement which specifies the areas of study to be undertaken and how that study will be carried out, through suitable combinations of workplace projects and distance learning, and assessed – mainly through reports on the workplace projects. The student then works through the agreed study and assessment, with support from Aston University staff and a workplace mentor, gradually building over an agreed period to completion and award of the MSc.

Professional Accreditation

Successful completion of MSc Professional Engineering combined with membership of a suitable engineering institution guarantees access to the institution’s process for professional review for CEng registration. Possession of the MSc will meet the educational requirements for CEng. You will still need to satisfy the institution about your practical competences, but MSc Professional Engineering study will help you with this.

Personal Development

As part of the MSc we will work with you to draw up a plan for achieving the full range of personal development expected of a Chartered Engineer under UKSPEC (the UK standard for professional engineering competence). As well as technical competence, this includes the ability to provide technical and commercial leadership, strong interpersonal/communication skills, and a personal commitment to professional standards, society in general and the environment.

Course detail

However you approach the course, we're here to help support your long term professional career development, this may include helping you develop a 'portfolio of evidence' to support your application to become a Chartered Engineer.

The full Master's course comprises 180 credits divided into three 60 credits stages: Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma, and Masters. Students work incrementally through the three stages and must pass all modules at each stage in order to progress to the next.

Modules

• Engineering Project Management
• Professional Development Appraisal and Continuous Review
• Research Investigation, Planning and Methods for Change

Dissertation

You also undertake a substantial independent research project and dissertation, based around either a project from your workplace, or on industry-based case studies. This helps you understand how your learning applies in the real world. This aspect of your MSc requires you to reflect on the implementation of your project, and evaluate opportunities for improvement.

You will have academic and normally industrial sponsors for this, to help you put the project in the required context.

This type of project is attractive to employers, as it provides an opportunity to deal with a real issue efficiently and cost-effectively. Often, your project will have a significant effect on the business sponsoring it.

Format

The learning methods and the structure of the course mean you will take an integrated view of an engineering enterprise by placing technology in strategic, financial, human and operational contexts. We encourage you to read around the subjects independently so you can really consolidate your knowledge and understanding while broadening your outlook and understanding of the key concepts.

Taught modules are usually held over three to five consecutive days, but can include distance learning and work-based learning in some cases. You organise the structure of your work-based learning with your module leader, to ensure it meets your needs and the learning outcomes are achievable.

Assessment

Assessment is normally by assignment. At this level, we don't test your understanding, we test your ability to implement your newfound skills and knowledge. Assignments are normally based on a real industrial case study, or a project in your workplace.

Careers / Further study

The MSc Professional Engineering supports continued professional development (CPD) needs, such as expertise with new technology, improving business and service performance, and leading initiatives for change through technical or system innovation.

It is an ideal step towards senior technical or management roles, and puts you in a position to have a major influence on your organisation's success. Meanwhile, it makes IEng or CEng registration achievable for all practising engineers, through a flexible approach to real-world learning. To support your career aspirations, we interview you regularly to establish your specific needs and what you want to achieve professionally.

Teaching

Our philosophy is to underpin theoretical aspects of the subject with hands-on experience in applying water engineering techniques. Although you may move on to project management and supervision roles, we feel it important that your knowledge is firmly based on an understanding of how things are done. To this end, industrial partners will provide guest lectures on specialist topics.

In addition to teaching, water engineering staff at Brunel are active researchers. This keeps us at the cutting edge of developments and, we hope, allows us to pass on our enthusiasm for the subject.

How many hours of study are involved?

Contact between students and academic staff is relatively high at around 20 hours per week to assist you in adjusting to university life. As the course progresses the number of contact hours is steadily reduced as you undertake more project-based work.

How will I be taught?

Lectures:
These provide a broad overview of the main concepts and ideas you need to understand and give you a framework on which to expand your knowledge by private study.
Laboratories:
Practicals are generally two- or three-hour sessions in which you can practise your observational and analytical skills, and develop a deeper understanding of theoretical concepts.
Design Studios:
In a studio you will work on individual and group projects with guidance from members of staff. You may be required to produce a design or develop a solution to an engineering problem. These sessions allow you to develop your intellectual ability and practice your teamwork skills.
Site visits:
Learning from real-world examples in an important part of the course. You will visit sites featuring a range of water engineering approaches and asked to evaluate what you see.
One-to-one:
On registration for the course you will be allocated a personal tutor who will be available to provide academic and pastoral support during your time at university. You will get one-to-one supervision on all project work.

Assessment

Several methods of assessment are employed on the course. There are written examinations and coursework. You will undertake projects, assignments, essays, laboratory work and short tests.

Project work is commonplace and is usually completed in groups to imitate the everyday experience in an engineering firm, where specialists must pool their talents to design a solution to a problem.

In this situation you can develop your management and leadership skills and ensure that all members of the group deliver their best. Group members share the mark gained, so it is up to each individual to get the most out of everyone else.

Special Features

Extensive facilities
Students can make the most of laboratory facilities which are extensive, modern and well equipped. We have recently made a major investment in our Joseph Bazalgette Laboratories which includes hydraulic testing laboratory equipment and facilities such as our open channel flow flumes.

Personal tutors
Although we recruit a large number of highly qualified students to our undergraduate, postgraduate and research degrees each year, we don’t forget that you are an individual. From the beginning of your time here, you are allocated a personal tutor who will guide you through academic and pastoral issues.

World-class research
The College is 'research intensive' – most of our academics are actively involved in cutting-edge research. Much of this research is undertaken with collaborators outside the University, including construction companies, water utilities, and other leading industrial firms. We work with universities in China, Poland, Egypt, Turkey, Italy, Denmark and Japan. This research is fed directly into our courses, providing a challenging investigative culture and ensuring that you are exposed to up-to-date and relevant material throughout your time at Brunel.

Strong industry links
We have excellent links with business and industry in the UK and overseas. This means:
Your degree is designed to meet the needs of industry and the marketplace.
The latest developments in the commercial world feed into your course.
You have greater choice and quality of professional placements.
We have more contacts to help you find a job when you graduate.

Visting Professors 
The Royal Academy of Engineering - UK’s national academy for engineering has appointed senior industrial engineers as visiting professors at Brunel University London.
The Visting Professors Scheme provides financial support for experienced industrial engineers to deliver face-to-face teaching and mentoring at a host of institutions. Our engineering undergraduates will benefit from an enhanced understanding of the role of engineering and the way it is practised, along with its challenges and demands. 

Women in Engineering and Computing Programme

Brunel’s Women in Engineering and Computing mentoring scheme provides our female students with invaluable help and support from their industry mentors.
