Our MSc Systems Engineering (Electronic) and Engineering Management (Degree Apprenticeship Route) allows you to invest in your workforce by combining university education, work-based learning and ongoing professional development. While working as a valuable part of your team, your apprentices can develop the advanced knowledge and skills needed to solve complex engineering challenges with an electronics emphasis.

Our MSc Systems Engineering (Electronic) and Engineering Management (Degree Apprenticeship Route) is designed to support the development of professionals that will perfectly match the current and future needs of your organisation. You can offer structured on-the-job training and an internationally recognised qualification in systems engineering and engineering management, helping you to attract the best new talent and retain valued staff through career progression. Studying flexibly alongside work will allow your apprentices to put their new skills and understanding into practice immediately, benefitting your organisation without delay.

A systems engineer is the all-important link between complex programming and technology, and its users, customers and stakeholders. This postgraduate course will support your apprentices to develop a firm knowledge and understanding of both sides, and the ability to take a joined-up approach to ensure systems meet a wide range of needs reliably, efficiently, and in a user-friendly fashion. Our expert staff will guide them as they learn how to collect and organise information in order to understand the whole problem, explore it from all angles, and then find the most appropriate solution. Your apprentices will spend 80% of their time at work and 20% at the University, usually on a day-release basis.

Our dedicated team will cover advanced control engineering concepts and design methodologies for electronics, digital signal processing for control applications, artificial intelligent technology and total quality management. Your apprentices will also explore the commercial aspects of project management and develop essential skills such as communication and time management. By underpinning our content and assignments with a strong industrial focus, we foster a unique blend of practical engineering and management-oriented skills and knowledge focused on solving complex electronic engineering challenges. Throughout the course, we’ll guide them as they build a portfolio of evidence representing the projects and tasks they have completed while working as part of your team.

The course is designed to meet professional institution standards in the UK and internationally.
