Course Summary

Our MSc Systems Engineering (Mechanical) and Engineering Management (Degree Apprenticeship Route) allows you to invest in your workforce by combining university education, work-based learning and ongoing professional development. While working as a valuable part of your team, your apprentices can develop the advanced knowledge and skills needed to solve complex engineering challenges with a mechanical emphasis.

Course Details

Our MSc Systems Engineering (Mechanical) and Engineering Management (Degree Apprenticeship Route) is designed to support the development of professionals that will perfectly match the current and future needs of your organisation. You can offer structured on-the-job training and an internationally recognised qualification in systems engineering and engineering management, helping you to attract the best new talent and retain valued staff through career progression. Studying flexibly alongside work will allow your apprentices to put their new skills and understanding into practice immediately, benefitting your organisation without delay.

A systems engineer is the all-important link between complex programming and technology, and its users, customers and stakeholders. This postgraduate course will support your apprentices to develop a firm knowledge and understanding of both sides, and the ability to take a joined-up approach to ensure systems meet a wide range of needs reliably, efficiently, and in a user-friendly fashion. Our expert staff will guide them as they learn how to collect and organise information in order to understand the whole problem, explore it from all angles, and then find the most appropriate solution. Your apprentices will spend 80% of their time at work and 20% at the University, usually on a day-release basis.

The course is designed to meet professional institution standards in the UK and internationally.

Key Features:

  • This Degree Apprenticeship skilfully combines study in our vibrant higher education environment with practical and focused work-based learning and experience in your organisation.
  • Course materials are available online, allowing your apprentices to prepare work at home and make the most of the highly interactive in-class tuition.
  • Our approach to teaching and learning is ‘student-centred’, so we’ll work with your apprentices on an individual basis, providing tailored help and support throughout their studies.
  • By studying alongside apprentices from other engineering specialisms or alternative industrial sectors, your apprentices can benefit from a wider range of knowledge and experience that supports cross-disciplinary thinking.

Career Opportunities

The MSc Systems Engineering (Mechanical) and Engineering Management (Degree Apprenticeship Route) programme is designed to meet the System Engineer (Degree) Level 7 Apprenticeship Standard. Developed by employers, this apprenticeship standard underpins a highly relevant qualification and professional development pathway that supports apprentices to achieve the requisite postgraduate knowledge and skills.

What Can I Do With This Qualification?

This Level 7 apprenticeship aims to support the development of the next generation of master’s level engineers for a range of mechanical engineering-related disciplines. On successful completion of the end point assessment, apprentices will be well prepared to take on demanding roles in systems engineering and engineering management. Career opportunities may include positions in project management, engineering design, materials and mechanics, dynamics and control and systems analyst roles.

Entry requirements

Normally, applicants are expected to have successfully completed an Honours degree (or equivalent) in a relevant subject, and have appropriate work experience. Applicants should also have Level 2 qualifications in English and Mathematics; for instance, GCSE grade C or above or grade 4 to 9 (or equivalent). Applicants will also be considered if they have alternative equivalent qualifications with extensive relevant work experience. Applicants holding overseas degrees are very welcome and the equivalence of their qualifications will be assessed by the University. Admission to this programme is only available to candidates who meet the following criteria. 1) They are employed for a minimum of 30 hours per week in a role relevant to the apprenticeship. 2) They have the right to live and work in the UK. 3) Their employer is participating in the Degree Apprenticeship scheme. 4) Their employer is willing to sponsor them to attend the University one day per week (times and dates to be determined). If an applicant doesn’t possess GCSEs in English and Mathematics at grade C or above or grade 4 to 9, or hold an equivalent such as Functional Skills Level 2 in Literacy and Numeracy, they will be asked to complete initial assessments for English and mathematics.
