Professional Engineering - MSc


Course Description

This course, which has been developed in conjunction with the Engineering Council, offers a work-based learning route to the academic qualifications and professional development you will need for registration as a chartered engineer (CEng). It allows you to acquire professional competencies alongside the MSc without the need to take time off work. The flexibility of the programme enables it to be adapted to almost any work situation, industry or location.

We help to match your workplace achievement against UK-SPEC competencies in a carefully defined, step-by-step, supervised way.

The application process is ongoing throughout the year, with four start points – August, November, February and May – to provide maximum flexibility.

What will you study?

Supervisors with appropriate academic and professional qualifications work with you and your employer to design a unique programme of activities and goals that also aim to meet a development need for your employer. Typically lasting two to three years, this 'learning agreement', tailored to your specific work situation, uses your normal workplace activities in 'learning modules', which are recognised as further learning at masters level. Our supervisors will ensure that your individual programme meets the requirements of an MSc, and will enable you to demonstrate engineering skills and competencies needed for chartered engineer status.

Assessment

Projects and reports.

Work placement scheme

Kingston University has set up a scheme that allows postgraduate students in the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Computing to include a work placement element in their course starting from September 2017. The placement scheme is available for both international and home/EU students.

-The work placement, up to 12 months; is optional.
-The work placement takes place after postgraduate students have successfully completed the taught portion of their degree.
-The responsibility for finding the placement is with the student. We cannot guarantee the placement, just the opportunity to undertake it.
-As the work placement is an assessed part of the course for international students, this is covered by a student's tier 4 visa.

Details on how to apply will be confirmed shortly.

Course structure

There are three phases to this programme – the Entry Gateway; Work-based Learning Goals; and the Exit Gateway.

Phase one – Entry Gateway: eg personal development audit (PDA), a reflective summary of education, qualifications, experience and competences to date.

Phase two – Work-based Learning Goals: eg individual modules created around the opportunities in your work by matching the PDA against PEI/UK SPEC requirements.

Phase three – Exit Gateway: eg either a paper plus a reflective summary or an engineering dissertation, and a viva voce.
