Course content

This is a workbased learning postgraduate award designed for students who are currently in employment and for a variety of reasons cannot attend university but can study at their place of work, and be educated to Masters level through a programme involving collaboration between the university, a Professional Engineering Institution (PEI) and an industrial partner. Within this programme, academic challenges at MSc level, together with competencies required by the PEI are clearly addressed.

One of the many advantages of this system is that students registered on this programme do not have to attend university apart from seminar and assessment days (an alternative arrangement may be possible for students not resident in the UK) thus reducing the costs of staff development for employers. An excellent feature of this programme is the final project which can be designed to correlate with the work that the student is doing for their employer.

Candidates completing this award successfully should be able to demonstrate the requirements for CEng registration.
