General Engineering MEng (Hons)

Taught by world-leading experts from our seven outstanding engineering departments, the MEng General Engineering interdisciplinary degree will ensure you develop a broad knowledge and understanding of engineering, while developing skills in independent thinking and the professional skills necessary for a career in industry.

In an increasingly complex and challenging world, knowledge and expertise beyond a single discipline is valuable for 21st-century engineers.

During your first two years you'll study modules across all disciplines and look at engineering in an interdisciplinary context. At the end of year two, you'll choose a specialism from one of our subjects, covering a range of engineering fields.

We also offer a non-specialist stream, allowing you to continue studying a variety of disciplines.

You'll spend year three and year four studying your chosen stream. The interdisciplinary ethos of your degree will be continued in the group design project and an advanced research - or industry-led final year project.
