This course builds on your diploma studies by enabling you to investigate an issue or problem on a topic of professional relevance to you, and takes you a step further towards becoming a Chartered Engineer (CEng). It will help you develop a professional approach to your work, extend your engineering skills, and develop a range of transferable skills such as the ability to solve problems creatively, communicate effectively, manage projects and turn concepts into reality.
