If you have ambitions of being a Chartered Engineer (CEng) then this course will provide you with the ideal start.
It is accredited by the Institution of Engineering Designers (IED) on behalf of the Engineering Council for the purposes of fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Graduates holding professional status and accredited degrees are highly valued by employers in the UK and internationally.
This course has been designed to suit those in work as well as full-time students, with units taught intensively (normally over 4.5 days) to enable effective, practical learning and minimise time away from the workplace. Dates for the units in the current academic year are given below as an example. Assessment normally takes place five to six weeks after the delivery of the unit.
During the course you’ll apply mathematical and computer-based models for solving problems in engineering design. The nature of this course is business driven and you will apply your knowledge to specific design problems. The research undertaken as part of the Individual Master’s Project will give you an opportunity to explore your particular area of interest in greater depth.
If you choose to take this degree on a part-time basis, it will take two years to reach Master’s level and you will then have a further six-month project to undertake.
For 2019 entry: In order to take advantage of new approaches to learning and teaching, as well as developments in industry to benefit our students we regularly review all of our courses. This course is currently going through this process and we will update this page in August 2018 to give you full information about what we will be offering once the review process has concluded.
If you choose to take the optional placement, it will begin after completion of the taught units, providing an excellent opportunity for you to gain first-hand industry experience and apply the learning that you have achieved through the course. The placement should be a paid job but voluntary work can be just as enjoyable.
Experience gained on the placement is invaluable in helping you to make informed decisions about your future career path, as well as enhancing your employment prospects upon graduation. Our dedicated Placements Office helps you to obtain placements and you will receive support throughout the placement experience.
If you have ambitions of being a chartered engineer (CEng) then this course will provide you with the ideal start. In order to achieve CEng status it is recognised that most chartered engineers will hold an appropriate Master’s degree like this one.
Graduates holding professional status and accredited degrees are highly valued by employers in the UK and internationally, meaning you will be well equipped to embark on a successful career in the engineering industry.
