Course Information

We aim to provide you with a detailed, academic study of lift engineering and related management issues, together with a higher level qualification for persons employed in lift engineering and allied industries.

Our Lift Engineering MSc is made up of seven modules. Four of these are compulsory, with two more that you will be able to choose, and a dissertation. The compulsory modules cover the fundamental areas that are essential to lift engineering, including the codes and standards to which lifts and their design must adhere. Option modules allow you to pursue your particular interests and specialise within the industry. Each module entails approximately 200 hours of independent study, and the dissertation entails around 600 hours.

This degree has been accredited by IMechE under licence from the UK regulator, the Engineering Council.  Accreditation is a mark of assurance that the degree meets the standards set by the Engineering Council in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC).  An accredited degree will provide you with some or all of the underpinning knowledge, understanding and skills for eventual registration as an Incorporated (IEng) or Chartered Engineer (CEng).  Some employers recruit preferentially from accredited degrees, and an accredited degree is likely to be recognised by other countries that are signatories to international accords.
