If your first language is not English, you will need to demonstrate that you are fluent enough to cope with the course.

Course content

  • Cost-effective for employers Avoids costs associated with having key personnel away from work for extended periods.
  • New route to recognition The new workbased MSc opens a route to CEng registration for many who might otherwise miss out. Students are given step by step guidance along the route to CEng.
  • Professional Development Audit Students are asked to complete a PDA to identify any shortfall in competencies required by Professional Engineering Institutions and to help define the negotiated Mlevel programme.
  • Negotiated Learning Contract Students are given a structured programme of study requiring them to produce appropriate material for assessment. The study and the assessment material is negotiated individually with each student so as make maximum use of what is needed by the employer. Study programmes are also designed to ensure that the UKSPEC list of competencies are met.
  • Employability Students registered on this programme are generally studying material that is of direct and indirect benefit to their employer. They therefore are more likely to experience better career progression and are less likely to seek employment elsewhere.

This is a work-based learning postgraduate award designed for students who are currently in employment and for a variety of reasons can-not attend university but can study at their place of work, and be educated to Masters level through a programme involving collaboration between the university, a Professional Engineering Institution (PEI) and an industrial partner. Within this programme, academic challenges at MSc level, together with competencies required by the PEI are clearly addressed.
