The MSc Professional Engineering has been developed as part of a Government funded initiative and on behalf of The Engineering Council (ECuk). This new Masters degree programme wholly takes place in the workplace and is directly relevant to what students are working on, whilst furthering their education and working towards professional body recognition and eventually chartered status.
Students will have direct links with the University and use of the learning and teaching resources. These links can be used in the workplace to maximise your productivity and be applied to work problems providing technology transfer solutions.
This programme is excellent for career development and allows them to obtain both academic and professional qualifications whilst working at the same time.
There are no taught formal modules within the programme. Two modules in Year 1 of the programme are taught via a blended learning approach combining assignments and distance learning with limited potential seminar contacts.
The programme balances a mix of modules with an MSc research project, which culminates in a dissertation. The combined modules are worth 120 credit points and the project is worth a further 60 credits, making 180 in total to achieve the full MSc award.
Applicants should normally have a minimum of a lower second class (2:2) honours degree. The candidate is also expected to be a member of the relevant professional body (IMechE or IET) and be seeking Chartered Status. Professional qualifications that are equivalent to an honours degree may also be acceptable. For students whose first language is not English evidence of having reached the equivalent of IELTS 6.5 TOEFL (575 paper-based, 90 internet-based), is required before entry.
