This is a new course which responds to the needs of the holders of accredited BEng degrees to receive further learning through MSc courses in order to satisfy the educational requirements for registration as Chartered Engineer. Many of the modules are delivered in a form suitable for study in the workplace. Pathways through the course at present are in civil engineering, and, in future years, also in aeronautical engineering, mechanical engineering and electrical engineering.
All students are required to undertake the engineering management module, with civil engineering modules available under the engineering and science deepening category, including:
* Finite element methods in structural mechanics
* Structural stability
* Structural dynamics
* Shock and earthquake analysis
Technical broadening modules include:
* Design of concrete structures
* Design of steel and composite structures
* Bridge engineering
These modules can be studied in the workplace. Another module taken from those available through the School should satisfy non-technical broadening requirements.
The dissertation can also be carried out in the workplace, under the joint supervision of an academic and industrial supervisor.
