Course overview

The course is designed for high performers who want to develop their technical knowledge to optimise performance of projects, broaden their understanding of interactions across their business and systems thinking, and enhance their managerial skills.

The programme provides the opportunity to gain the knowledge, develop the skills and exhibit the behaviours of a Systems Engineer, in a structured way, as identified by employers and captured in the Degree Apprenticeship standard.

As well as gaining a Postgraduate Diploma qualification, you have the option to progress to MSc to undertake a work-based final year project.

Course structure

You will complete eight modules and Post Module Assignments plus a work-based project. In addition to modules you will attend a four-day Fundamentals block before the start of Year 1 and a three-day Research Methods block (in preparation for the work-based project) before the start of Year 3.

This blended learning programme has a focus on work-based learning (through applied assignments in Years 1 & 2 and a significant project in Year 3 – all assessed by the University) combined with best practice study at Warwick.

We believe that the best way to embed the ideas, tools, and processes you have studied is by applying them back to your work environment. This is why each module is followed by a post module work-based assignment, rather than written examinations.You are required to attend all modules and submit Post Module Assignments.
