Developed with the Engineering Council as part of the Engineering Gateway programme, this MSc Professional Engineering online degree is a highly flexible, part-time, work-based learning route to obtaining Chartered Engineer (CEng) status. It is recognised by a wide range of engineering institutions such as ICE (Institute of Civil Engineers), IMechE (Institute of Mechanical Engineers) and IET (Institute of Engineering and Technology) through the Engineering Council.
Obtain your Masters without taking time off work
The course is available to study part-time, through online distance learning meaning you don't have to take time off work to complete your Masters. The course is designed to give you the flexibility to study at a time and place most suitable for you, while receiving support and guidance from our expert online tutors.
Through the combination of online distance learning and work based learning you can achieve the academic qualifications and professional development required to evidence your registration as a Chartered Engineer.
Mentoring from experienced Chartered Engineers
You will require mentoring and support from a Chartered Engineer and will be asked to source an appropriate mentor via your relevant engineering institute or workplace.
A HEFCE initiative
This programme has been developed for online distance learning with Postgraduate Support Scheme (PSS) funding from the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) to help plug a UK skills gap in vital engineering skills.
A three phased approach
There are three phases to this online distance learning course:
Phase 1: Entry Gateway
Comprising a professional development audit (PDA) of your education, qualifications, experience, and competencies to date, and a reflective summary.
Phase 2: Study Programme (Learning Contract)
This is the individual study programme that matches your PDA against professional body/Engineering Council requirements.
Phase 3: Exit Gateway
This consists of either a reflective summary or an engineering project depending on skills and needs. It also includes a viva voce. Appropriately qualified academic and industrial tutors will work with you and your employer to design a unique programme tailored to your work situation.

Michael Donohoe, MBA
I chose to study online because of the flexibility. The ability to work out of hours and over weekends meant that the impact at work and home was kept to a bare minimum. I would not have been able to study any other way.
I feel that my personal approach in business is much more 'holistic' as a result of my studies at the University of Derby Online Learning. I feel much more confident as a person; it’s a great feeling.
