  • An opportunity to present work-to-date at various stages and engage in a Q&A style session with a team of academics and invited experts.
  • Gain a deeper understanding of engineering practices by researching specific areas of interest.
  • Further opportunities for learners to disseminate their work and exploit their current research.

Entry Requirements:

Two Professional Diploma awards (30 ECTS each) at Level 9, with a minimum second class honours grade two (2.2) or equivalent, as deemed appropriate by the Academic Programme Director. One of these Professional Diplomas must be a course completed and awarded by the Faculty of Science and Engineering.
