About

The Professional Engineering course is a progression pathway with 120 credits weighting, designed to give a route from foundation degrees to a BEng. It is offered to those who hold 240 credits from Aston Foundation Degree (or equivalent). The course provides the advanced engineering knowledge and understanding needed to qualify for incorporated engineer (IEng) status, and helps with building the range of practical competences also needed for IEng.

Upon completion of this programme students have the opportunity to apply for Incorporated Engineer (IEng) status and progress to the MSc Professional Engineering course, which, upon completion, allows students to apply for Chartered Engineer (CEng) status.

The BEng Professional Engineering course is approved, delivered and managed by Aston University, but support for and recognition of the course is much broader, to address shortages in different disciplines i.e. Mechanical Engineering, Gas and Oil, Electrical Engineering, Instructions & Control, The Environment and Industrial Pollution

Academic Requirements

A Foundation Degree or equivalent in a relevant engineering discipline.  Applicants must be in full time employment and have the support of their employer.  We understand that some engineers may not have completed a Foundation Degree (or equivalent qualification) and therefore do not meet the entry requirements.  However, if you do have at least 180 credits from previous qualifications in a relevant engineering discipline, then we may be able to offer you the opportunity to complete a Portfolio of Evidence.
