Continuing Professional Development
We offer a wide range courses each year for professional engineers wishing to acquire or update their engineering skills and knowledge. Each course is a module from our MSc programme and is informed by our cutting edge research.
Our courses are delivered by experienced academics with extensive education and research experience. While the majority are delivered completely on campus during one or two weeks, some are also available in an on-line distance learning format with tutorial support.
These courses are advantageous to employers and employees because:
- they provide access to our outstanding university facilities and expertise;
- they initiate improvements in business / individual knowledge and skills;
- employees are only away from the workplace for short periods, usually one week;
- each course is linked to one or more of our Postgraduate Masters Programmes;
- courses can either be non-assessed or credit-bearing as required.
To align with industry expectations, our courses are accredited by a number of professional bodies, including IMechE, IED, IET and Energy Institute.
Each short course offers targeted learning in its own subject area for delegates who want expand their engineering knowledge and skills, but not a complete postgraduate degree programme.
Study with us either on campus or via Distance Learning.
The majority of our courses are offered on a on-campus basis. Come and join us at the Wolfson School and study alongside our MSc students for a one or two week course. We offer an excellent environment in which to study and work. Take a look inside our state-of-the-art laboratories and teaching facilities via the link below:
For further information about our on campus courses please contact George Hones.
We do offer a select few via Distance Learning and these are identified in the Course Calendars. Stay at home and study with our distance learning online community of MSc students over a 15 week period. You will benefit from the most advanced set of e-learning tools, including a portfolio of virtual learning laboratories and simulation software. Further information regarding the benefits and process of Distance Learning can be found here:
