Post Graduate Engineers develop solutions to engineering problems using new or existing technologies, through innovation, creativity and change and may have technical accountability for complex systems with their associated risks. They will work in an area that covers a wide range of generic engineering disciplines which could include for example: software, integrated systems, mechanical, electrical, electronic, electromechanical, fluid power components/systems and materials.
Typical occupations include:
• Research and Development Engineer
• Design and Development Engineer
• Systems Integration Engineer
• Quality Assurance/Compliance Engineer
• Test/Qualification Engineer
• Manufacture/Production Engineer
• Maintenance/Test Engineer
• Product Support (inc logistics) Engineer
• Decommissioning/Disposal Engineer
• Supply Chain/Procurement.
Post Graduate Engineers take on a package of work independently, understanding how to research the tasks involved, solve related problems, understand the need to utilise support from Subject Matter Experts from their own and other engineering disciplines. They also understand the engineering framework within which they are operating and the relevant approval processes (e.g. Configuration Control, Governance, Quality Assurance, Design Authority approval etc.) that are required to be satisfied. They are able to agree that timescales and budgets set for the task are achievable and have an understanding of where and when risk may affect these.
This Apprenticeship Standard aligns with the current edition of the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC) at Chartered Engineer (CEng) Level. The experience gained and responsibility held by the apprentice on completion of the Apprenticeship will either wholly or partially satisfy the requirements for CEng and reaches the agreed level of professional competence as defined in the Assessment Plan.
