Cranfield University and BAE Systems team up to enhance UK engineering skills

Cranfield UniversityCranfield University and BAE Systems have announced plans to extend their partnership to enhance the UK’s engineering skills. 

The educational partnership, announced recently at Farnborough International Airshow, will deliver a postgraduate engineering apprenticeship program for the next three years. This postgraduate course will give the students a masters-level qualification, alongside invaluable hands-on work experience. The modules of the Postgraduate Diploma in Engineering Competence will be taught entirely online via interactive video sessions with Cranfield lecturers, as well as remote online learning platforms, and at the end of the course students be closer to reaching Chartered Engineering (CEng) accreditation.

Director of Manufacturing at Cranfield University, Professor Rajkumar Roy, explains, “The UK is rightly determined to boost its engineering skills. This program, in partnership with BAE Systems, does just that. Through Cranfield’s specialist learning platforms, we can deliver modules such as design-driven innovation, operations management and cost engineering, without the engineers having to be out of the workplace.”

BAE Systems Director of Education and Skills, Richard Hamer, adds, “We’re delighted that our graduate engineers are able to continue to partner with such a prestigious institution as Cranfield. As part of our on going commitment to nurture talent and high-end skills, the postgraduate diploma in engineering competence allows our graduate engineers to apply their learning in a work-based context, with the assessment focused on competency rather than academic ability.”
