Engineering is constantly changing, and graduates often need to deepen their technical skills and understanding.
This course is especially relevant for mechanical and manufacturing engineers and technicians wishing to broaden their industrial and managerial skills. It is ideal for continuing professional development and updating technical skills.
You study eight taught modules drawn from a wide choice of technical and management modules. This gives you advanced tuition in areas of engineering tailored to your career needs such as design, manufacturing, materials, networking or electronics and telecommunications.
We emphasise applying knowledge to relevant workplace skills in areas such as:
-Design, manufacture, electronics, telecommunications and information technology, networking and materials.
-Core management disciplines of quality, finance and marketing and others.
The international product development module involves working in multidisciplinary teams to design and develop a product in the global market.
This flexible course helps you to develop your career based your needs, and helps you on your path towards Chartered Engineer status.

Accredited by the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3).
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. Accredited MSc graduates who also have a BEng (Hons) accredited for CEng, will be able to show that they have satisfied the educational base for CEng registration. It should be noted that graduates from an accredited MSc programme, who do not also have an appropriately accredited Honours degree, will not be regarded as having the exemplifying qualifications for professional registration as a Chartered Engineer with the Engineering Council; and will need to have their first qualification individually assessed through the Individual Case Procedure if they wish to progress to CEng.
This programme is CEng accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and fulfils the educational requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer when presented with an CEng accredited Bachelors programme.
Full time – 12 to 18 months.
Part time – typically 3 years, maximum 6 years.

Other admission requirements
Overseas applicants from countries whose first language is not English must normally produce evidence of competence in English. An IELTS score of 6.0 with 5.5 in all skills (or equivalent) is the standard for non-native speakers of English. If your English language skill is currently below an IELTS score of 6.0 with a minimum of 5.5 in all skills we recommend you consider a Sheffield Hallam University Pre-sessional English course which will enable you to achieve an equivalent English level.
Normal entry requirements are at least a second class honours degree from a UK institution in a relevant engineering or science subject, or an equivalent qualification from the UK or overseas. If you hold another qualification, for example an HND, plus relevant industrial experience, we will consider your application. See course description for further admission details.
