With the permission of the Programme Director, students who have successfully completed equivalent courses at undergraduate level may be permitted to select alternatives from the list of Course Options
- The Engineering Council Compensation Rules -
Due to the requirements of the professional accrediting bodies, in addition to passing the dissertation, graduation requires passes in at least 100 credit points worth of courses AND an overall average of 50% or more for the 120 credits of courses taken in the MSc.
- Resits for Professional Purposes -
Students NOT achieving full passes in 100 credits will be required to take 'Resits for Professional Purposes' (RPPs) in the courses where they obtained less than 50%.
Graduation with the accredited MSc will then only be permitted once the equivalent of full passes in at least 100 credits of courses has been achieved, however, the mark obtained at the first attempt will be used to calculate the final year average and degree award.
Students failing to meet the Engineering Council requirements above, will be eligible for the award of an MSc in Engineering Technology (Structural and Fire Safety Engineering), which does not have accredited status.
