Description

Do you want to study for a career-boosting Postgraduate qualification while you earn a salary?

On this postgraduate engineer degree apprenticeship course, which lasts just over 2 years, you’ll learn core skills in areas such as project management, team management and analytics. After completing your diploma you work towards achieving Chartered Engineering status (CEng).

You’ll cover topics such as sustainable engineering and safe working practices, and work on projects that contribute to your success at work. You’ll tailor what you learn to suit your professional goals and the type of role that you have, as well as your employer’s objectives.

The course is work-based, and combines a mixture of lectures and online learning. You’ll spend 20% of your work time on your apprenticeship via lectures, distance learning, writing assignments and other related study. The government or your employer will pay your tuition fees – so it won’t cost you anything.

After the course, you’ll have the skills, knowledge and experience to take responsibility for complex engineering projects and move into more senior roles. You could also top your diploma up to a Master’s degree through our Learning at Work department.
