About the course


We also run a Continuing professional development course in Reliability Engineering and Asset Management (CPD).


Part time MSc

The part time Direct Taught MSc programme has a distinct advantage for students in that they can study at their own pace and enhance knowledge in a slow but steady way without affecting work/professional responsibilities. The part time course is delivered over 3 years therefore students are able to choose 2 units per semester for the first 2 years and then 1 year to complete the individual research project (Dissertation).

  • MSc 36 months : 8 units plus dissertation project
  • Postgraduate Diploma (PGDip) 24 months: 8 units
  • Postgraduate Certificate (PGCert) 9 months: 4 units

Part-time Direct Taught is only available to Home/EU students
