This specialist course can be used as a stepping-stone to an exciting career in engineering and will prepare you if you do not meet the pre-requisite entry requirements for many of our MSc courses. It is an intensive, full-time course delivered through a mixture of lectures, practical laboratory sessions and design exercises, over 10 months.
Why this course?
The Pre-Master's in Engineering is designed as a bridging programme with the following objectives:
- To enable direct admission to selected engineering Masters degree courses from Cranfield University
- To learn the personal and professional skills needed both for masters-level study and in future career development
- To refresh and enhance the understanding of engineering related science and mathematics skills
- To understand the methodologies, philosophies and tools used within the industry and provide valuable experience of working on open-ended projects.
The modules cover many aspects of general engineering applications.
The Pre-Masters Course in Engineering is an intensive, full-time course delivered through a mixture of lectures, practical laboratory sessions and design exercises.

Candidates will be individually considered and may be required to undertake this course as a condition of entry onto an eligible MSc programme.
Typical prerequisites include an ordinary degree or HND (with 3 years’ experience) in engineering and physical science disciplines. Previous experience, aptitude and level of academic achievement will be assessed.
Students must have familiarity with elementary mathematical functions (polynomial, trigonometric, exponential and logarithmic for example), a sound working knowledge of algebra, and understanding and competence in basic calculus (differentiation and integration). Basic knowledge of the application of mass, force and moments as well as a fundamental understanding of SI units are required for stress analysis.
Engineers work in a dynamic environment where new technologies, methodologies and processes are being developed. The Pre-Master's in Engineering course covers many aspects of general engineering fields including aerospace, automotive and offshore.
After successfully completing this course, you will meet the entry requirements for several of our postgraduate programmes.
