Professional Engineering

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.

Course modules

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. How the learning for each module is composed from workplace projects and distance study of supporting formal material is also flexible and will be negotiated to suit individual needs.

Assessment methods

The course begins with a Professional Development Audit (PDA), where we help students evaluate what they have done previously and what they need to add to gain the MSc and qualify for CEng. Based on the PDA, the student and Aston University set up an individual Learning Agreement which specifies the areas of study to be undertaken and how that study will be carried out, through suitable combinations of workplace projects and distance learning, and assessed - mainly through reports on the workplace projects. The student then works through the agreed study and assessment, with support from Aston University staff and a workplace mentor, gradually building over an agreed period to completion and award of the MSc.
