We offer engineering degrees at two levels - BEng and MEng.
Both provide a pathway to becoming a Chartered Engineer (CEng). This is one of the most recognised international engineering qualifications.
Our Master of Engineering (MEng) degrees are a direct route to becoming chartered. You don’t need to study any more qualifications after your degree to achieve chartered status.
Our three-year BEng degrees can also lead to Chartered Engineer status. However, you’ll need to complete further study, like an approved Master’s degree.
Visit the Engineering Council’s website for information about the benefits of becoming chartered.
