Achieve a Masters and work towards Chartered Engineer status.

As well as demonstrating your expertise within the sector, Chartership may also increase your earning potential and career opportunities.

Become a Chartered Engineer
Through the combination of our master degrees and work based learning, you can achieve the academic qualifications and professional development required to apply for registration as a Chartered Engineer.

Choose from two courses:

Professional Engineering MSc
Developed with the Engineering Council, our online Professional Engineering MSc is a highly flexible, part-time route to obtaining an engineering Master’s without taking time off work. The course is recognised by a wide range of engineering institutes including ICE, IMECHE and IET and will help you to develop skills and knowledge within leadership, research, ethical responsibilities, problem solving and innovation in technology.

Advanced Materials and Additive Manufacturing MSc
Ideal for people with experience in any engineering discipline, or from an analytical background such as physics or geology, the MSc Advanced Materials and Additive Manufacturing course provides the opportunity to demonstrate your academic knowledge and develop your technical ability within a cutting-edge, high-tech industry. It will prepare you for roles in component design and manufacturing, or at a strategic level formulating business plans based on industry 4.0 concepts. Find out more about our Advanced Materials and Additive Manufacturing MSc and meet the course leader with our video.


Study part-time, 100% online to achieve your Engineering postgraduate degree

Through the University of Derby Online Learning (UDOL) we offer a choice of two work-based MSc qualifications that can be completed part-time, 100% online, allowing you to achieve your qualification from anywhere in the world and providing you with the flexibility to study alongside your work or personal commitments.

My ultimate goal was to be a better Engineering leader. I progressed my own Engineering knowledge in a work-based environment by pushing for projects proactively that I may not have been suitable for without the online learning support. This led to a great deal of visibility and positive recognition, whilst expanding my network. I have also gained experience to apply for Chartered Engineer Status (CEng) something that I can now do following the completion of the course.”
