Overview

Overview

Do you want to boost your career prospects by studying for an engineering Master's degree alongside your current job?

Whether you're looking to advance your existing technical competence and engineering knowledge or want to develop your understanding of emerging practices, this MSc Engineering Learning at Work Masters course will help you gain the the knowledge, skills and confidence required to become an independent leader. And once you've completed the course, you'll be equipped to solve the increasingly-complex engineering issues that arise in the workplace.

Because the course is work-based, you need to already be in a full-time, part-time or voluntary role. If you don't have an undergraduate degree, you could still do this postgraduate course if you have several years experience in a responsible position (such as a military role) or you have high-level skills through experience that isn't reflected in your qualifications.

You can tailor the course to match your professional and personal aspirations and your employer's objectives. The way you learn is flexible, so you can study wherever is most convenient for you and schedule your studies around your existing commitments.

You'll get to put the skills you learn to work instantly in your job, contributing to the success of your company. When you complete the course, you'll improve your career prospects and have the skills and knowledge to perform more effectively in your job.

While this degree is not accredited, students who successfully complete the course could potentially gain Chartered Engineer (CEng) status through the following professional engineering institutions:

  • Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET)
  • Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE)
  • Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST)
  • Royal Aeronautical Society (RAes)
  • Institute of Healthcare Engineering and Estate Management (IHEEM)
  • Institution of Gas Engineers and Managers (IGEM)
  • The Society of Operations Engineers (SOE)

Programme Structure

On this course, you'll:

  • Choose modules and study topics that match your personal and professional goals, as well as your employer's objectives
  • Develop your ability to analyse problems, research and propose solutions, and make sound professional judgements when faced with the organisational, financial and management aspects of a business
  • Take part in work-based learning (WBL) projects that form part of your daily workload, which ensure that the knowledge you develop is relevant to your employer's business
  • Get an optional 1-day induction in Portsmouth at the start of the course and have the opportunity to study on campus, if it suits you
