Professional Engineering Employer Information

ECUK logo
The MSc in Professional Engineering is a part-time work-based distance learning course (2-5 years) designed, approved, delivered and managed by Aston University, in collaboration with the Engineering Council UK (ECUK). The end result of the course is cost effective engineering staff development to the highest professional standards.

The course is designed to maximise the potential benefit engineers and their employers get from the investment in professional development. It leads to an MSc degree and helps with building the range of practical competencies and prividing the advanced engineering knowledge and understanding needed to apply for full Chartered Engineer (CEng) status.

Each engineer on the course has their own unique course made up of a series of work-based projects. Learning is specifically focused on employment needs, and gives immediate benefit to their employment value.

Projects are carried in real time in the workplace and engineers don’t have to take time away from work to attend university.

The engineers receive frequent mentoring support in the workplace from a Chartered Engineer and high quality academic mentoring from an Academic Supervisor.
