Course Description

This programme is designed to produce engineering graduates with a well-rounded understanding of economics, accounting and business practice. These skills are precisely those required by industry from graduates who are likely to be given significant managerial responsibility at an early stage in their career.

  • Our top-quality laboratory and testing facilities include materials testing equipment, wind tunnels, two large wave tanks and an array of engine test cells.

  • You will benefit from our internationally renowned research expertise as this cutting-edge knowledge is passed on to you through our teaching.

  • Although not the primary objective, our programmes are proving extremely successful in training graduates for employment in the fields of commerce, banking and management consultancy.

  • We offer you a degree that is highly respected both within the UK and abroad.

Assessment Methods

Most subjects are examined through a combination of end-of-year examinations and coursework, but some are solely examined through coursework, for example, computing, design and projects. To transfer into a MEng programme you are required to maintain a standard equivalent to (at least) lower second-class Honours level throughout your studies.
