The programme provides professional career development within an academic environment with major contributions from industrial experts. The course structure offers full or part time options, providing maximum flexibility for students and their employers.
Our teaching allows the development of core skills and the acquisition of application-specific knowledge relevant to chosen specialised fields.
Taught in small groups and in modern 'high-tech' facilities, modules are delivered by leading industrial experts providing invaluable practical experience and 'real-life' industrial context.
An online taster course is available to experience the teaching material and presentation style.
The programme is delivered in modular form, mixing direct teaching with distance learning. Each module comprises two days of direct face-to-face teaching, and the equivalent of a further three days teaching delivered as distance learning.
Full-time MSc students take a mixture of compulsory and optional modules, and complete an individual project with dissertation.
Part-time MSc students have the same mixture of compulsory and optional modules, but split equally across Year 1 and Year 2, and then complete an individual project with dissertation in Year 3. Part-time Diploma students take four modules in the first year and four modules in their second year of study. Part-time Certificate students take four compulsory modules.
Assessment of each module is by written examination and module assignment. The MSc dissertation is based on a project conducted in association with one of the Schools research groups.
