Entry requirements

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 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: the Admissions Officer will advise as to whether these qualifications are the equivalent of the level of Honours degree required. International students whose native language is not English will also need to demonstrate English Language ability (e.g. IELTS 6.5, TOEFL score of 600 or equivalent).

Course content

The MSc Professional Engineering provides the advanced engineering knowledge and understanding needed to qualify for full chartered engineer (CEng) status, and helps with building the range of practical competences also needed for CEng.

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.

Information for international students

A limited number of international Scholarships are available, subject to the fulfilment of academic and other eligibility criteria. For up-to-date information please visit our website.
