Entry requirements

Entry to the Professional Engineering MSc normally requires the completion of an accredited BSc/BEng(Hons) degree. Those without such a degree but with suitable industrial experience, may join the MSc subject to assessment. As the course is designed to take participants directly to CEng status, participants must also have significant engineering experience. (Engineers applying for CEng status need to have demonstrated the ability to apply their engineering knowledge within a practical engineering environment.) For those who have an accredited first degree (either BEng or BSc) we require a minimum of two years' relevant industrial or engineering experience. For those without such a degree, we will require a greater amount of industrial experience. Please note: each application is assessed on an individual basis and may be subject to additional requirements, such as undertaking short course(s), work experience and/or English language qualification(s). Meeting particular minimum entry requirements does not automatically guarantee a place.

Months of entry

Course content

This course, which has been developed in conjunction with the Engineering Council, offers a work-based learning route to the academic qualifications and professional development you will need for registration as a chartered engineer (CEng). It allows you to acquire professional competencies alongside the MSc without the need to take time off work. The flexibility of the programme enables it to be adapted to almost any work situation, industry or location.

We help to match your workplace achievement against UK-SPEC competencies in a carefully defined, step-by-step, supervised way.

The application process is ongoing throughout the year, with four start points – August, November, February and May – to provide maximum flexibility.

Apply for this course and you could be entitled to an Aerospace MSc bursary of up to £9,500 to pay for your fees. Details of the scheme and how to apply are at www.raeng.org.uk/aeromsc.

What will you study

Supervisors with appropriate academic and professional qualifications work with you and your employer to design a unique programme of activities and goals that also aim to meet a development need for your employer. Typically lasting two to three years, this 'learning agreement', tailored to your specific work situation, uses your normal workplace activities in 'learning modules', which are recognised as further learning at masters level. Our supervisors will ensure that your individual programme meets the requirements of an MSc, and will enable you to demonstrate engineering skills and competencies needed for chartered engineer status.
