This Engineering course from The Open University UK builds on your diploma studies by enabling you to investigate an issue or problem on a topic of professional relevance to you, and takes you a step further towards becoming a Chartered Engineer (CEng). It will help you develop a professional approach to your work, extend your engineering skills, and develop a range of transferable skills such as the ability to solve problems creatively, communicate effectively, manage projects and turn concepts into reality.
Key features of the course
The knowledge and practical experience you gain during your postgraduate studies mean you'll be well placed to take advantage of the many senior engineering and technology employment opportunities available at home and abroad. At the same time, you'll be developing capabilities that are highly prized by employers in a variety of other sectors, where your logical thinking, numeracy skills, and team working abilities will be in demand.
Combining an accredited honours degree with our MSc in Engineering will fulfil the educational requirements for Chartered Engineer status. We have accreditations with the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) and the Institution of Engineering Designers (IED) have been recently extended. We are waiting for confirmation of extension to accreditations from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE).
Always verify the dates on the programme website.
