Many of our courses are professionally accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators, which provides a route to Chartered Engineer status in the UK.
Our courses share a common first year. This means you have the freedom to switch programmes up until the end of your second year. You also have the option of spending the third year of your MEng at one of our specially selected partner universities overseas, or extending your degree by taking an industrial placement year option.
Laboratory classes, project work and fieldwork allow you to gain hands-on experience, investigating and applying material from your lectures and tutorials to real-life work situations.
