IMechE Approved Modules

1. Overview

We are the first university to achieve prestigious IMechE approval for a suite of Masters level modules for inclusion in Further Learning Plans. These Plans are a fundamental element in achieving recognition as a Chartered Engineer.

This suite of modules responds directly to the needs of industry, providing affordable access for businesses and individuals to IMechE approved Masters-level modules. Modules have been carefully selected from Masters Degree programmes currently offered by our School of Engineering and Aberdeen Business School.

Each module is approved as being an acceptable element of an individual Further Learning plan for Chartered Engineer registration in that it meets the requisite content, academic level and academic rigour expected of an approved Further Learning plan for Chartered Engineer registration.

2. What you will study

Our suite of modules is divided into three areas:

  • Engineering and Science Deepening
  • Engineering and Science Broadening
  • Non-Technical Broadening
