MSc Professional Engineering

Course Description

About this course

We've developed this course with the Engineering Council as part of the Engineering Gateways programme to help you to gain Chartered Engineer (CEng) status if you are working in the engineering profession. It offers a work based route to the academic qualification and professional development that you need to demonstrate for registration as a CEng. You’ll acquire professional competences and an MSc without taking time off work. Because thecourse is flexible, it can be adapted to almost any work situation, engineering industry, or location.

There are three phases to this course:

Phase One: Entry Gateway
The personal development audit (PDA) is a reflective summary of education, qualifications, experience and competences to date.

Phase Two: Study Programme (Learning Contract)
This is your individual study programme which matches your PDA against PEI/UK SPEC requirements so that you can study as below.

Phase Three: Exit Gateway
This is either a reflective summary or an engineering project depending on your skills and needs. It also includes a viva voce.

You’ll study modules such as:

Research Methods: Application and Evaluation
Negotiated Advanced Technical Module
Negotiated Module (Environmental and Ethical Responsibility)
CPD and Strategic Management
Negotiated Module (Commercial and Technical Leadership)
Negotiated Module (Innovation in Technology)
Negotiated Module (Solving Engineering Problems)
Independent Scholarship

Student Profiles

You will normally require an accredited BSc/BEng(Hons) degree. Those without such a degree but with suitable industrial experience, may join the course subject to assessment. As the course is designed to take students directly to CEng status, you must also have significant engineering experience.
