About

All learning is specifically focused on organisational needs, giving you immediate return on investment. The Professional Engineering programme offered at the Aston University comprises a set of modules, each of which has a credit rating, and a complete MSc needs.

Overview

All modules of the Professional Engineering programme offered at the Aston University, after the initial Professional Development Audit are highly flexible – they are designed to be tailored to suit each participant’s engineering area, particular interests and employment circumstances. The learning for each module is composed from workplace projects, and distance study of supporting formal material.

Learning, Teaching & Assessment

The course begins with a Professional Development Audit (PDA), where we help students evaluate what they have done previously and what they need to add to gain the MSc and qualify for CEng. Based on the PDA, the student and Aston University set up an individual Learning Agreement which specifies the areas of study to be undertaken and how that study will be carried out, through suitable combinations of workplace projects and distance learning, and assessed – mainly through reports on the workplace projects. The student then works through the agreed study and assessment, with support from Aston University staff and a workplace mentor, gradually building over an agreed period to completion and award of the MSc.
