If you are not sure which engineering discipline you are interested in, you should apply for the general Engineering with Foundation Year degree.
This allows you to delay your choice of engineering discipline until the end of the foundation year.
We offer engineering degrees at two levels - BEng and MEng.
Both our BEng and MEng degrees provide a pathway to becoming a Chartered Engineer (CEng). This is one of the most recognised international engineering qualifications.
