The MBA Project can provide an opportunity for industrially commissioned or industrially based work at a high level. It is also worth noting that MBA projects carried out by part time students are typically of significant importance to their companies and can raise a student's profile in the organisation.
Within the constraints of the maximum length of the course, it is also possible to extend the project for a full-time student to work in an industrial or commercial setting (three months is sometimes short for training and specialist skills acquisition to an M level concurrent with acclimatisation to the industrial setting). If a full-time student finds employment with a company at the start of the project stage, they may be able to transition to part-time status, thus allowing one year for project completion.
You will attend a two-day workshop to prepare you for the disciplines required to carry out effective research and reporting of your work. You will be allocated a staff member as your project supervisor who will act as a mentor to assist you through the project.

This course is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) and will meet, in part, the exemplifying academic benchmark requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Accredited MSc graduates who also have a BEng (Hons) accredited for CEng will be able to show that they have satisfied the educational base for CEng registration.
It should be noted that graduates from an accredited MSc programme, who do not also have an appropriately accredited Honours degree, will not be regarded as having the exemplifying qualifications for professional registration as a Chartered Engineer with the Engineering Council; they will need to have their first qualification individually assessed through the Individual Case Procedure if they wish to progress to CEng.
