2 EDUCATIONAL AIMS OF THE PROGRAMME To provide an introduction to study at masters level, to equip you with the skills and underpinning knowledge needed to succeed on your chosen award Develop masters-level knowledge and skills in engineering in the context of employer-driven needs, emerging markets, and contemporary subject areas within the discipline. Extend knowledge and understanding of, and practical skills in a range of advanced engineering topics. Develop academic and discipline-specific rigour through applied scholarship Build or strengthen domain-specific understanding and transferrable skills thus equipping graduates for a career in industry or academia Focus on depth of study, critical awareness and evaluation in selected areas of current research and advanced scholarship within the academic discipline of. Develop and strengthen critical analysis, independent scholarship, and intellectual empowerment through a structured research-informed programme of studies in and through research-informed teaching. Use the rigour of academic knowledge and training to develop applied practical skills for real-world engineering contexts. Provide a balanced programme of study, comprising engineering theory with the opportunity to gain practical, hands-on experience. Develop scholarly and professional skills within the professional, legal and ethical frameworks which govern the development of engineering solutions To equip you, through independent learning at a postgraduate level, for further academic study and continuing professional development within your chosen field. Develop effective communication skills of value to academic, technical and professional environments. What is distinctive about this programme? The transition from undergraduate to masters level study is challenging, particularly in terms of academic and research skills and independent learning. The transition is especially challenging for students whose first language is not English and/or students who have not completed a UK or EU undergraduate qualification. The Extended International Masters programme supports students through this transition. You will receive a grounding in academic English and the study skills required to succeed at masters level. Your mathematical skills, fundamental to the engineering discipline, will be revised and enhanced through a single practice based module. You will also 2 P age

3 complete a single engineering fundamentals module. This module will ensure that you are prepared for your course of specialist study, filling in any gaps in knowledge and equipping you with the underpinning technical skills needed to succeed. Once you have successfully completed the first semester on the award you will progress to study a programme of 8 specialist modules. This programme aims to provide students with an opportunity for structured continuing professional development recognised by an academic qualification that may contribute to the student s development as a professional. This award has been recognised by the IET and IMechE as contributing to a matching section leading to Chartered Engineer status. The structure and curriculum of the award have been designed such that graduates can become specialists in problem solving and project management within subject areas which are currently at the leading edge of their chosen field. Students will be exposed to the latest software based techniques appropriate to their chosen field. These techniques are in support of a sound understanding of engineering principles which is also provided as part of this course. As part of the teaching and learning process, it is expected that visits to local engineering companies will be organised. This will allow students to see their academic work in the context of industrial practice. The award provides the skills for students to become independent learners and not just consumers of taught material thereby allowing them to maintain their educational standing within the fast developing area of engineering. All awards in this programme offer the opportunity to undertake a work placement within a suitable company. The University will help and support students in finding such a placement and also provides assistance with CV writing, and interview technique. 3 P age

In order to progress to the MSc project you must have passed at least 105 credits from the taught programme but not including modules taken in teaching block 1. HOW WILL I BE TAUGHT AND ASSESSED? and Learning The Extended International Masters programme is specifically design to enhance the learning of overseas students who may be unfamiliar with the learning culture in UK universities. The initial four modules are designed to address areas that experience has shown cause overseas students difficulties. These four modules will be delivered in a way which will gently introduce the learning culture to students. Assessments for these modules will have a summative element (i.e. the marks do count towards your progression on the award) but there will also be a significant amount of formative feedback given so that students can understand what they are doing right and how they can improve on areas where they are weak. A substantial variety and range of teaching and learning strategies is used on these awards. These take the form of class attendance, directed reading, private reading, electronic delivery of learning material, computer simulations, discussions with supervisors, practical work, problem solving, working with peers in group activities, working with people in industry, literature reviewing and critically appraising published work, giving presentations, being interviewed, report writing, industrial visits and seminars. This variety of 7 P age

8 methods is designed to encourage you to become an independent learner so that you can continue to increase your knowledge even after you finish the course. and learning within the University is supported by electronic distribution of information and course management through the Blackboard virtual learning environment. Each module within the Faculty has a presence on Blackboard. Due to the nature of learning on an MSc this is particularly important ensuring a wide variety of resources are available to students independent of their geographic location or time of study. The system also provides a means of communication between students and lecturers both formal and informal through discussion forums. Many of the modules on the MSc have been developed to make full use of this facility and are used as exemplars of good practice. The information on Blackboard is in support of and not as a replacement for attendance at taught classes each week. The Faculty encourages students and supervisors to include an element of practical work in the project module. This may include design work, building of technical equipment, experimental measurements, implementing computerbased based solutions. This practical work is linked to the theoretical studies undertaken. Students also learn from the range of assessment activities that they are subjected to. These activities include making presentations, engaging in interviews, log-book preparation, and report writing. Students receive both written and verbal feedback on these activities from their tutors to assist them in further developing their skills. The substantial range of facilities available within the Faculty and the University, contribute to generating a research/academic community environment and culture which impacts favourably on MSc students. However, the resource that influences the learning of students most on these awards is probably the staff - their approach to supporting students, their specialist subject knowledge, and their knowledge of appropriate specialist texts and other support material that can contribute to student learning. 8 P age

9 Assessment Assessment serves two purposes. Firstly it gives students the opportunity to demonstrate that they have successfully understood the information they have been given. Secondly, and most importantly, assessment is also a continuation of the learning process. Revision for examinations and writing of reports allows students to practice what they have been taught and the feedback received from the lecturer can further direct them to enhance their knowledge and skills further. Most modules on the course are assessed by a mixture of coursework and examination. The coursework is designed to assess practical skills and problem solving ability whereas the examination will focus more on assessing knowledge and understanding. Some modules will be teaching practical applied skills and so may be assessed entirely by coursework which might include laboratory work, report writing and presentations. It is recognised that peer support is an important part of the overall learning process so students are encouraged to work in small groups where appropriate and in this case the work may be assessed as a group. In all cases the majority of the assessment for any module will be on individual work. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Entry Requirements (including IELTS score) For overseas students there is a requirement for English language at one of the following standards: IELTS 6.0 TOEFL: (IBT 79, paper 550, computer based 213) Pearson test 60 65% at year 12 English What qualifications would I need to join this programme? The entry requirements for the award are normally: A first degree of second class honours classification or above in a relevant subject area. The relevancy of the first degree will be judged by the programme admissions staff in consultation with the Award Tutor. However applicants with lower entry qualifications, but with relevant work experience, can also be admitted to the programme at the discretion of the Award Tutor. Admission to the programme with advanced standing is possible for applicants who already hold a recent, relevant postgraduate qualification, or who already have substantial recent, relevant experience. In this case Advanced Prior Learning (APL) or Advanced Prior Experiential Learning (APEL) credit will be given against specific modules. 9 P age

10 Disability Statement Staffordshire University operates a policy of inclusive teaching and learning to ensure that all students have an equal opportunity to fulfil their educational potential. Details about how to apply to have your needs assessed can be found at: AWARD SPECIFIC INFORMATION Assessment of the programme will be undertaken in accordance with the University awards regulations, which can be found at We actively encourage students to undertake a suitable engineering work placement lasting up to a maximum of 1 academic year. This placement cannot start until the student has gained at least 45 credits and must be completed before the student starts the MSc Dissertation. The placement is zero credit rated and so does not contribute to the final award but is noted as an additional module on the certificate. You will need to extend your visa if you gain a placement. The MSc Dissertation cannot be started until at least 90 credits have been achieved. In addition to these general regulations our accrediting bodies have imposed the following additional regulations: Student must achieve at least 40% in each reported element of assessment to be awarded a pass in a module. At the discretion of the Award Board a compensation for failure can be given if at least 40% has been achieved in the final assessment. A maximum of 30 credits can be compensated. Compensation will not be applied until progression on the award would not be possible without it. Further information about the award can be found in the relevant Student Handbook and on the University Website. This includes information about optional modules, student support, and academic regulations. ==================================== 10 P age
