Following on from the successful launch of the GSE Profession Systems Engineer (Degree) Apprenticeship with Cranfield University last November, we are pleased to announce that there will be a second cohort due to start in September 2020.
Systems engineers address some of the most complex challenges and problems that society faces. This is a key area which has been highlighted as having a critical skills gap, and the apprenticeship route is a way in which this shortage can be addressed to the immediate benefit of the workforce.
Learning via the apprenticeships route offers an exciting opportunity to gain a qualification whilst working; they are fully-funded via the departmental apprenticeship levy and students experience vastly improved insight into the issues confronted with in daily work.
This Masters course will help learners understand how systems engineers, domain engineers and project managers come together as multi-disciplinary teams to develop solutions to real world problems. It is particularly suited to those staff with an engineering background who wish to build on their knowledge and skillset and will be particularly relevant in departments where there is a specific need to address an identified capability deficiency in systems engineering.
To explore this opportunity further take a look at Cranfield University’s site online - systems engineering to see whether this may be the learning opportunity that piques your interest. Full information for prospective candidates, managers, apprenticeships leads and HR Business Partners is contained within the information pack, available upon request from the GSE Profession Team.
The application period via the online process closed on the 10th of July.
