Applied learning

Live projects

We encourage you to learn through the application of theories, concepts and knowledge to real-life situations (such as your own organisation) or by using case studies. Our part-time students can find that their masters projects are typically of significant importance to their companies and can raise their profile in the organisation.

Competitions

You can design, build and fly a remote-controlled aircraft as part of the Unmanned Aircraft Systems Challenge.

  • mechanical manufacturing
  • electronics
  • information technology
  • networking
  • materials
  • management areas
  • research

Accreditation

This course is accredited by the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3), on behalf of the Engineering Council, for the purposes of partly meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer; graduates who have a BEng (Hons) accredited for CEng will be able to show that they have satisfied the further learning requirement for CEng accreditation.

This course is also accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) on behalf of the Engineering Council and will meet, in part, the exemplifying academic benchmark requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Accredited MSc graduates who also have a BEng (Hons) accredited for CEng, will be able to show that they have satisfied the educational base for CEng registration. It should be noted that graduates from an accredited MSc programme, who do not also have an appropriately accredited Honours degree, will not be regarded as having the exemplifying qualifications for professional registration as a Chartered Engineer with the Engineering Council; and will need to have their first qualification individually assessed through the Individual Case Procedure if they wish to progress to CEng.

This programme is CEng accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and fulfils the educational requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer when presented with an CEng accredited Bachelors programme.

Entry requirements

UK students

Normal entry requirements are at least a second class honours degree from a UK institution in a relevant engineering or science subject, or an equivalent qualification from the UK or overseas.

If you hold another qualification, for example an HND, plus relevant industrial experience, we will consider your application. You may also be able to claim credit points which can reduce the amount of time it takes to complete your qualification at Sheffield Hallam. Find out more

Overseas applicants from countries whose first language is not English must normally produce evidence of competence in English. An IELTS score of 6.0 with 5.5 in all skills (or equivalent) is the standard for non-native speakers of English. If your English language skill is currently below an IELTS score of 6.0 with a minimum of 5.5 in all skills we recommend you consider a Sheffield Hallam University Pre-sessional English course which will enable you to achieve an equivalent English level.

EU and International students
