Take a look around the room you are in. Most of what you see has been made, developed or modified by an engineer. This course encompasses the design, development, manufacture, installation, operation and maintenance of engineered products. The difference between this course and our BEng (Hons) route is that as well as specialising in more advanced topics, you’ll meet the European Framework Standards for engineering accreditation.



On this course you can:

  • Create your own designs in our manufacturing workshops
  • Put learning into practice by doing a paid work placement, either in the UK or overseas
  • Be involved in Formula Student

This MEng course has been accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), meeting the standards set by the Engineering Council in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC).
Successfully completing this MEng course will allow you to achieve Chartered Engineer (CEng) status upon graduation.

Here are some routes our graduates have pursued:

  • design
  • research and development
  • product manufacture
  • project management
