Professional Engineering

Designed specifically for those with non-standard, work-based experience, this course allows students to align their existing skills and competencies to develop their professional portfolio of evidence (for CEng). Students may choose their own programme of study to meet their specific needs with modules mapped directly to UK-SPEC, enabling them to create their own bespoke MSc award. The programme enables students to identify the learning required for their personal development, in conjunction with advice from employers (where relevant) to ensure the learning identified meets the capability requirements of the sponsoring organisation. The alignment of all modules within the programme to the UK-SPEC competencies, ensures skill gaps can be easily identified and filled through this study programme.
