Accreditation

The NTEC MSc is accredited by:

  • The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET)
  • The Energy Institute (EI)
  • The Institute of Materials Minerals and Mining (IoM3)
  • The Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE)

We are currently in the process of applying for re-accreditation with the four institutes above as it is up for renewal.

For students who wish to be accredited by the IET the following requirements must be obtained:

Where a module comprises of coursework and exam elements, successful completion of the module should require a minimum mark of 40% in each element if the element contributes more than 30% to the module mark. For a student to graduate with an IET accredited qualification they will need to pass the major final project at the first attempt.

Information for students who wish to be accredited by the IoM3: Upon graduating with an accredited integrated MEng in engineering/technology, or an accredited Bachelor’s (with Honours) in engineering/technology plus further learning of an accredited Master’s, students will have fulfilled the educational requirements for professional registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng).

Information for students who wish to be accredited by the IMechE: Students completing an IMechE accredited degree are deemed to have met part or all of the academic requirements for registration as a Chartered or Incorporated Engineer and are in a strong position to move on to achieve professional engineering status after a period of initial professional development in industry. The accredited MSc will meet, in part, the exemplifying academic benchmark requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Accredited MSc graduates who also have a BEng (Hons) accredited for CEng will be able to show that they have satisfied the educational base for CEng registration. It should be noted that graduates from an accredited MSc programme that do not also have an appropriately accredited Honours degree, will not be regarded as having the exemplifying qualifications for professional registration as a Chartered Engineer with the Engineering Council; and will need to have their qualifications individually assessed through the Individual Case Procedure if they wish to progress to CEng.

NTEC has recently been endorsed by the Nuclear Institute (NI).
