UK engineering skills enhanced by Cranfield and BAE Systems

Posted 20 July 2018 · Add Comment

Cranfield University and BAE Systems have announced at the Farnborough International Airshow today the extension of an educational partnership that will further enhance the UK’s engineering skills.

The partnership will deliver a postgraduate engineering apprenticeship programme for the next three years which provides learners with a valuable master's-level qualification in addition to valuable hands-on work experience.

On successful completion, the BAE Systems apprentices will obtain a Postgraduate Diploma in Engineering Competence - a milestone in their route to reaching Chartered Engineering (CEng) accreditation.

Teaching of the modules will be delivered entirely online utillising Cranfield’s specialist live, online learning platforms. Through a combination of interactive video sessions with Cranfield’s academics and remote online learning platforms, graduate engineers will have the flexibility to study and acquire a masters-level qualification without taking time out from work.

Professor Rajkumar Roy, Director of Manufacturing at Cranfield University, said: “The UK is rightly determined to boost its engineering skills. This programme, 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.”

Richard Hamer, BAE Systems Director of Education and Skills said: “We’re delighted that our graduate engineers are able to continue to partner with such a prestigious institution as Cranfield. As part of our ongoing 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.
