The programme is designed for the development of Post Graduate Engineers who are capable of finding solutions to engineering problems using new or existing technologies, through innovation, creativity and change whilst having an appreciation and understanding of associated risks and technical accountability.

The programme is delivered via bespoke high quality online resources with apprentice learning and skills development facilitated by world class academics from the Department of Design, Manufacturing and Engineering Management.


The curriculum includes six 10-credit core classes:

  • Engineering Risk Management
  • Management of Total Quality and Continuous Improvement

Further personalisation of studies is possible through the 20 credits of optional classes and the integral 40 credit individual project which allows the apprentice to apply module content to a real workplace situation.
Throughout the 2 years of study each apprentice is supported by a University Academic Mentor who will facilitate the development of effective reflective skills enabling individuals to achieve their potential in terms of evidencing of knowledge, skills and behaviours at the level of C. Eng.
