This course is accredited by the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3).
This course is 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.

Other admission requirements
If English is not your first language you typically need an IELTS 6.0 score with a minimum of 6.0 in writing and 5.5 in all other skills or equivalent. If your English language skill is currently below IELTS 6.0 we recommend you consider a Sheffield Hallam University Pre-sessional English course which will enable you to achieve an equivalent English score.
-A first class BE in an relevant discipline, or a good second class BE with a strong performance in mechanical and manufacturing subjects.
-A four year Bachelors degree in an relevant discipline, with an overall average of at least 80 per cent or equivalent.
-A good honours degree or equivalent in an relevant subject.
Normally one from: an honours degree (2.2 or above) in a science or engineering subject; suitable professional qualifications in an engineering field; a degree in any discipline plus at least one year of relevant experience; a diploma in a technological area plus at least three years of relevant experience.
