The Master of Engineering degree (MEng) is an integrated masters degree combining undergraduate and postgraduate degree level study.
Your study begins with a similar curriculum to the BEng (Honours) degree programme, before enabling you to specialise in areas of your own interest – such as engineering management, environmental engineering, or mechanics and materials.
During your studies, you’ll undertake a substantial research project and participate in a team project at a UK residential school, too.
