You'll normally need an appropriate engineering or science undergraduate degree (2:2 or above) or equivalent, an equivalent professional qualification, or significant industrial or professional experience following your initial qualification. If English is not your first language, you'll also need an IELTS score of 6.0 or equivalent.
Months of entry
You'll specialise in control and instrumentation, and develop the skills and knowledge you'll need to apply for registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng) when you graduate.
Chartered Engineers use a range of fundamental scientific principles to:
- research, develop and apply new technologies
- develop and promote advanced designs and design methods
- introduce new and more efficient production techniques
- initiate marketing and construction concepts
- pioneer new engineering services and management methods.
This course is flexible, so you'll have lots of choice in the specialist subject modules you take and the ways you learn. So you'll study some modules through lectures and tutorials, some online and others in your workplace. You'll study both on your own and as part of a group. And your project work will give you experience of working in teams.
If your undergraduate degree is not accredited by the Engineering Council as part of their requirements for the CEng, or you're unsure about studying a postgraduate course, you can do the Preparatory Programme - Preparing for Postgraduate Study in Arts, Design and Technology (Engineering) - before you start the MSc.
