We are proud to develop and nurture the next generation of the world's top engineering talent to meet the challenges of an increasingly complex world.

We attract high quality students from a wide range of backgrounds - each year over 150 new students from home and abroad join us to take advantage of the diverse range of innovative undergraduate courses we offer. The quality and relevance of our programmes is reflected in our exceptional record of placing students into career-focussed employment. Find out more about career opportunities.

Our BEng and MEng courses are designed to provide you with the skills and knowledge needed to tackle some of the most important technological challenges of the 21st century. Whichever course you choose, you can tailor your studies to suit your individual needs and interests by selecting from a wide range of optional modules. All of our courses may be taken withthe industrial placement year.

Why not come along to an Open Day to find out which course is right for you?

MEng/BEng course structure

All of the School’s undergraduate courses can be studied as either an MEng or BEng. Both can be studied with or without an industrial placement year. MEng courses therefore take four or five years to complete whilst BEng courses take three or four years.

The first two years of a BEng or MEng share the same format and structure. The MEng courses differ from the BEng in that by offering the opportunity to study technical and management topics at a more advanced level and a more direct route to achieving Chartered Engineer status post-graduation.
