Third & Fourth Years
Time to Specialise
From the third year, you are required to specialise. 'Manufacturing Engineering' is offered in addition to 'Engineering' as a distinct course, as shown in the Course Map. These two routes through to the award of an MEng are outlined below. At the end of the third year, you will qualify for a BA (with Honours). However, the course is designed with a four-year structure leading to the degrees of BA (with Honours) and MEng. This is the academic qualification which carries with it accreditation by one of the professional Engineering Institutions as fully satisfying the educational base for a Chartered Engineer (CEng). Students leaving after three years (which is extremely rare) would be leaving their professional education unfinished.
