The Masters in Engineering Practice is a new and innovative Masters Programme offered by the School of Engineering.
This programme is attractive to our industry learners as it provides a flexible way to combine previous studies – i.e. 2 Professional Diplomas, one of which must have been completed within the Faculty of Science and Engineering – with a thesis, to receive a Masters in Engineering Practice award.



Who are looking to progress their career and participate on an academic programme that will enable them to develop their problem-solving skills as well as build on their strengths from previous qualifications.

Want to complete a Masters qualification in Engineering.


The programme will run over two academic semesters, part-time, starting with a thesis preparation module.

Learners will develop very quickly an active online learning environment where they are supported by their academic supervisor during the thesis proposal phase right up to the final presentation of their work.

During each stage of the thesis there will be a strong focus on engagement and collaboration with fellow learners.
The introduction of an industry thesis champion who acts as a mentor for the learner provides the programme continued support from leading experts in engineering disciplines, ensuring that there continues to be a focus on current practice, and leading-edge research on the programme.
