The Professional Engineering course at Kingston University offers a work-based learning route to the academic qualifications and professional development you will need for registration as a chartered engineer (CEng). It allows you to acquire professional competencies alongside the MSc without the need to take time off work.

Our supervisors will ensure that your individual programme meets the requirements of an MSc, and will enable you to demonstrate engineering skills and competencies needed for chartered engineer status.
