Course Description

Engineering Doctorate (DEng)



This qualification is aimed at those pursuing professional rather than academic careers. The DEng acknowledges that significant research takes place within the practitioner’s workplace, therefore, the context for this DEng programme is the practitioner workplace and the focus is on solving real-world problems faced in the daily work-place.

The DEng programme will equip students with a diverse knowledge of technology principals, disruptive inventions and new designs, processes and techniques, as well as substantial knowledge at the cutting edge of industry and the forefront of academic research.  Through problem-solving, heuristics, theory of inventive problem solving, technical analysis and critical evaluation, apprentices will gain the ability to significantly contribute to the creative process.

The aim of a Doctorate programme is to produce a qualification which, whilst being equivalent in status and challenge to a DEng, is more appropriate for those pursuing professional rather than academic careers. The DEng acknowledges that significant research takes place within the practitioner’s workplace. Candidates are required to make a contribution to both theory and practice in their field, and to develop professional practice by making a contribution to (professional) knowledge.

This four year programme is structured for blended delivery of online learning and face to face sessions which minimizes time ‘off the job’. You must successfully complete the Qualifier module to be offered a place on the PDEng.
