The Aston Professional Engineering Centre (APEC) offers a well-established and successful BEng Professional Engineering (Power Systems) degree programme. Running this programme demonstrated the value of work based top up programmes. The new BEng Professional Engineering degree course has therefore been developed to give the opportunity to those engineers coming from engineering disciplines other than power engineering and who would like to study a more general professional engineering qualification. The course provides the advanced engineering knowledge and understanding needed to qualify for incorporated engineer (IEng) status

Course outline:
The Professional Engineering course is a progression pathway with 120 credits weighting, designed to give a route from foundation degrees to a BEng. It is offered to those who hold 240 credits from Aston Foundation Degree (or equivalent). The course provides the advanced engineering knowledge and understanding needed to qualify for incorporated engineer (IEng) status, and helps with building the range of practical competences also needed for IEng.

The programme has three core modules totalling 60 credits.  Students will then choose 60 credits from a list of modules.

2 years’ work based blended distance learning

Location of course:
All learning and teaching is undertaken through Distance Learning using a Virtual Learning Environment (Blackboard). You will also be allocated two Supervisor who will visit you in the workplace to help guide you through your studies.  There will be a requirement to attend Aston University for an induction, to sit examinations and attend optional short tutorials.  Any attendance at the University is usually arranged on Saturdays.  

Entry requirement:

A Foundation Degree or equivalent in a relevant engineering discipline.  Applicants must be in full time employment and have the support of their employer.  We understand that some engineers may not have completed a Foundation Degree (or equivalent qualification) and therefore do not meet the entry requirements.  However, if you do have at least 180 credits from previous qualifications in a relevant engineering discipline, then we may be able to offer you the opportunity to complete a Portfolio of Evidence.  If the Portfolio is successfully completed, then you will be offered a place on this Bachelors programme.  For further information please email
