Masters degrees in Quality Assurance Engineering equip postgraduates with the skills to devise engineering models which characterise a set of principles for professional practise.
Taught MSc degrees are typical for the field, though research oriented MRes and MPhil programmes may be available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant Engineering subject.
Quality Assurance is a process for preventing mistakes or defects in manufactured products, as well as avoiding problems when delivering solutions or services to customers.
You will gain an understanding of the importance of an integrated quality system across a range of industries. This system, put simply, is the administrative process associated with the assurance of products and services. It includes systematic measurements of professional practice, standard comparison, process monitoring, and error prevention.
Training will typically cover industry issues such as legislation and regulation, public policy, sustainability and environmental analysis, health and safety, and best practise. Products for analysis may include technology and machinery, medicine, food and drink, fossil fuels and renewable energy.
Careers typically include assurance monitoring on behalf of agencies and regulative authorities, as well as consultancy and service training.
The programme has been designed to provide postgraduate education and training in Manufacturing Management. The course includes modules in topics such as Computer Aided Engineering, Quality and Manufacturing Systems. A significant proportion of the students on the course come from local engineering companies and study in a part-time mode. Both the MSc and PgDIP versions of the course are also suitable for engineering or science graduates wishing to up skill in order to improve their employment prospects.
The course draws upon the internationally recognised research within the school in areas such as Aerospace Composites, Polymers, Advanced Metal Forming, Medical Devices, Biomedical Engineering, and Nanotechnology. Such research within the school has led to several successful spinout companies. Staff teaching on the course also have a wealth of industrial experience with many have decades of experience working with a wide range of companies. The following represent some of the available taught modules: Core modules, Manufacturing Systems. Computer Aided Engineering for Engineers, Quality Improvement A wide range of optional modules are available which allow students to tailor the course to their interests or employment.
Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET)
Accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology on behalf of the Engineering Council for the purposes of fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer.
Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE)
Accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) on behalf of the Engineering Council for the purposes of fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer.
Part-time students can undertake work based learning modules.
Upon successful completion of the programme students will be more employable within a wide range of manufacturing industries. The wide range of optional modules available in areas such as Biomedical Engineering, Nanotechnology, Aerospace and Materials allows students to tailor the course towards their particular interests. Another important opportunity for MSc students is the academic/research career through a PhD programme such as those offered in the Engineering Research Institute (ERI) which hosts the MSc programme.
This part-time, distance learning Masters course aims to develop the next generation of senior construction professionals working in concrete production, construction and design. It’s designed to provide you with advanced, in-depth knowledge of both the theory and practical application of concrete technology to prepare you for a variety of senior roles.
You’ll gain academic and industrial expertise using a range of online resources that give you the flexibility to study around your work and personal lives. From health and safety and quality control to mixture proportioning, repair and maintenance and life cycle analysis, you’ll develop an understanding of a wide range of issues that affect professionals in the concrete industry today.
If you complete the MSc, you’ll also have the chance to conduct your own research project – a chance to focus on a single topic and demonstrate valuable skills when you present your findings in a comprehensive technical report.
This is a flexible online programme which offers you a variety of study options to gain your MSc in Petroleum Engineering from as little as 36 months to a maximum of 72 months to complete with 10-12 hours of study per week on average. You can study this programme from anywhere in the world and it offers the same academic rigour you would expect if you were studying on campus at University of Aberdeen but you can fit it around a busy life, work, other responsibilities and much more.
If have an engineering, science or mathematics degree and you are considering work in the oil and gas industry worldwide Petroleum Engineering can provide you with a wide range of knowledge and skills within the upstream oil and gas extraction area. The programme mainly focuses on the skills you need to extract oil which can be the initial geoscience knowledge through to core analysis and reservoir engineering. Within reservoir and well engineering there are several areas of analysis, testing and development you then specialise in. This ensures you have a very robust approach to offshore production with the type of advanced skills to problem solve and troubleshoot different situations.
The programme also develops your skills in formation evaluation, simulation, and appraisal plus safe production and enhancing the recovery of hydrocarbon oil and gas. This programme is highly regarded in the industry internationally and it is recognised by all major players in the oil and gas industry. Careers can be anything from Drilling, Operations, Piping Specification, Production, Reservoir, Subsurface and Wellhead Engineer. The degree hold accreditation from the Energy Institute and Institute of Mechanical Engineers
