Entry requirements

If you wish to apply for this programme you must be employed in the engineering field in which you hope to advance. Your employer will need to be supportive of you, and willing to ensure you can undertake a good range of workplace projects to build the learning needed for the MSc and additionally the competences to qualify for CEng.

MSc Professional Engineering is suitable for people who aspire to fully qualified professional engineer status (CEng) and are already part way there, normally through a first or good second class UK accredited honours degree at Bachelor’s level (BEng or BSc) supported by several years of employment experience gaining practical competence and responsibility. We can also accept people without an honours degree (eg qualified to HND level) but with greater relevant experience. Qualifications from outside the UK will also be considered.

Months of entry

Course content

The MSc Professional Engineering course is approved, delivered and managed by Aston University, but support for and recognition of the course is much broader.

The programme comprises a set of modules, each of which has a credit rating, and a complete MSc needs 180 credits. You will study five core (compulsory) modules totalling 120 credits, then choose the remaining 60 credits from a wide range of optional modules, giving scope to match the course to your particular interests and objectives.

All modules after the initial Professional Development Audit are highly flexible – they are designed to be tailored to suit each participant’s engineering area, particular interests and employment circumstances. The learning for each module is composed from workplace projects, and distance study of supporting formal material.
