Our flexible degree structure makes it possible for you to swap up to the end of Level 2 as new interests develop and it becomes clearer to you what sort of professional career you intend to follow.

Professional Accreditation

The Honours degrees are accredited to BEng level by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) which means that the IET has checked and approved the standards of the teaching, the assessment, the laboratories and the staff. When you have graduated and commenced your career, an accredited Honours degree is the first requirement for gaining professional registration with the Engineering Council as a Chartered Engineer (CEng).

The ‘integrated Masters’ MEng programme takes one year longer than the BEng programme because it provides more experience of the world of industry relevant to future employment as a professional engineer.
