Postgraduate Taught Courses
UCL Centre for Systems Engineering runs a number of Postgraduate programmes leading to PGCert, PGDip and MSc level qualifications.
The two programmes draw from a common body of modules and seek to teach students how to develop complex technologies in a way sensitive to the needs of business.
What our students say
"[An MSc] demonstrates commitment to continued learning…and I feel that’s something very important for anyone that is serious about their career"
"The course is very relevant to my work. I found many examples where the theoretical experience taught on the course had ready application in the workplace"
"I did a project management module and got an APM Association for Project Management qualification out of that as well, which I think will be beneficial for me from a career perspective"
- Paul Newton, BAE Systems
"The engagement between the tutors and the students has exceeded my expectations…discussing in teams how systems engineering can be used in the work place and also discussing with other industry sectors - it was interesting to see their viewpoints on solving similar problems."
- Brian Gallacher, Babcock International Group
"I chose UCL because it’s quite a prestigious, well known university and the fact that it was doing a systems engineering management masters rather than systems engineering … which is what I needed really thinking of career progression."
"I’ve enjoyed undertaking the MSc in London because
obviously London is a great place to come and eat out and enjoy yourself - and
it’s been good that UCL offer modules in week-long courses so that you can do a
module at a time"
- Dan Jones, Systems Engineer
