You will broaden and deepen your understanding of professional engineering, and work collaboratively on a project module. Engineering programme from The Open University UK also provides a route to a masters level engineering qualification, and can help you progress towards Chartered Engineer registration.Key features of the course
This qualification will help you to develop your engineering skills, as well as a range of transferable skills, such as: the ability to use specialist knowledge to solve problems creatively; effective communication skills; project management skills; the ability to turn concepts into reality; a professional approach to your work.
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.
If you already hold an honours degree that has been accredited by one of the engineering institutions licensed by the Engineering Council, this diploma course will take you one stage further towards fulfilling the educational requirements for Chartered Engineer (CEng) registration.
Combining an accredited honours degree with study of our Postgraduate Diploma plus our MSc in Engineering will fulfil the educational requirements for Chartered Engineer status. We have accreditations with the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) and the Institution of Engineering Designers (IED). We are waiting for confirmation of accreditation from the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE).
