  • Objectives
    Cranfield University's unique part-time Postgraduate Certificate (PgCert) in Cost Engineering, developed in collaboration with industry, will create a new generation of cost engineers. The course provides knowledge and skills required in both cost and affordability engineering. It also contributes to the increased efficiency of engineers, and streamlines communication with both customers and suppliers. Learning is enhanced by the sharing of best practice across different industry sectors.
  • Entry requirements
    Candidates must possess, or be expected to achieve a 1st or 2nd class UK Honours degree in a relevant discipline, or the international equivalent of these UK qualifications. Other relevant qualifications together with significant experience may be considered.
  • Academic Title
    Cost Engineering PgCert
  • Course description
    Cost engineering is a well established area of research, training and development at Cranfield University.

    Cost engineers urgently need recognition to promote their profession. It is recognised that improving cost engineering capabilities within the engineering industry contributes to the development of affordable products and technologies. There is a growing demand internationally for cost engineers who can impart cost and affordability engineering knowledge to support organisational effectiveness.

    Our unique Postgraduate Certificate (PgCert) in Cost Engineering, developed in collaboration with industry, will create a new generation of cost engineers.

    The course content provides a sound, broadly-based education covering the fundamental principles of cost engineering, data management, product and project life cycle and business processes. It also contributes to the increased efficiency of engineers and streamlines communication with both customers and suppliers. Learning is enhanced by the sharing of best practice across different industry sectors.

    Students are introduced to general management concepts and practice in the teaching modules as well as individual projects. The facilities available include a CAD work station, SAP R/3, Cost Studio®, CAM facilities, 3D printer and industry-leading process modelling and simulation software.

    The course comprises four one-week assessed modules which include lectures and tutorials, and an individual project.

    Individual project

    The individual project is selected in association with the student’s sponsoring company to deliver results that are of relevance to the company, as well as meeting the academic requirements. The career ambitions of the individual student are also considered. The project is supervised by Cranfield University academic staff.
