About the course
This course is specifically aimed at International students, supporting those wishing to gain practical work based experiential learning. Together with studying your chosen course we are offering you the opportunity to secure a placement* for an additional 6 months, making the course 18 months in length. This allows students with limited experience to put into practice the skills and techniques developed throughout the Master’s degree.
More than 1.8m additional engineers and qualified technicians will be needed by 2025 to meet existing and growing demand for skills across Britain, according to Engineering UK; there is currently a shortfall of at least 20,000 UK-trained engineers every year. The engineering sector as a whole currently accounts for 26% of GDP and more than 5.7m jobs.*
Society today places a huge range of demands on the engineering community, from the desire for ever more sophisticated consumer goods to the challenges imposed by the need for clean forms of power and transport. Faced with these demands, engineering industries in the UK are continually seeking professional engineers with high levels of expertise and skills.
If you are a graduate from an engineering or closely related science discipline and you would like to extend your knowledge, skills and ability to an advanced level, this course can help you achieve this.
By providing you with a greater depth of knowledge and skills in engineering science and expanding your technical skills into previously unfamiliar areas of mechanical engineering and related subjects this course can help you to broaden your skills and knowledge and develop the management know how for you to succeed as a manager within an engineering organisation.
Enhance your career
Previous graduates from courses in this subject area have gone on to work in a variety of roles such as engineering consultant, engine air specialist – technical specialist and line trial engineer in organisations including Atkins Ltd, Cummins Turbo Technologies Ltd and Optimas Solutions.
We know you’re coming to university to study on your chosen subject, meet new people and broaden your horizons. However, we also help you to focus on life after you have graduated to ensure that your hard work pays off and you achieve your ambition.
