Course summary

Course summary

Through this innovative Executive Apprenticeship you can study for a masters degree funded by your employer while working full time. The programme is focused on developing future engineering leaders and will develop your leadership and management skills as well as enhancing your engineering capabilities.

Programme overview

The Engineering Leadership and Management Executive Apprenticeship is made up of six core modules, plus two electives taught over a 24 month period. It concludes with a major business project undertaken over a further six months of study.

Who is this apprenticeship for?

Executive apprentices will be engineering specialists or managers within an engineering function or business with a desire to further their knowledge, develop their careers and to progress to leadership positions.

Apprentices can range from new employees (with prior work experience) to existing staff who have grown into their role. Responsibilities can include leading people, projects, operations and/or services to deliver long term results.

Learning and teaching

The first two years of the programme are delivered through a block teaching approach, and you will study four modules each year. Teaching is based at the University and will be in small blocks, totalling approximately 24 days per year, and using around half of the 20 per cent off the job training time that employers should allocate apprentices when studying for a degree apprenticeship.

While at the University, you will learn through formal lectures, tutorials and interactive workshops led by our industrially experienced teaching staff. We work in small cohorts that will enable you to study with fellow specialists, network and learn through discussion of current industry issues. Through our experiential learning approach, you will be able to apply your new skills and knowledge straight away in the workplace.


Modules are assessed by the University through individual coursework for each module and the major employer project. Assessments have an emphasis on application of taught material within the workplace setting to deepen learning.

Throughout the programme, you will amass a portfolio designed to evidence development of your skills, knowledge and behaviours. On achievement of the MSc award, you will undergo an End Point Assessment with an external assessment organisation to demonstrate achievement of the Institute for Apprenticeships approved Standard for a Senior Leader Master’s Degree Apprenticeship.
