At undergraduate level in the academic areas of Engineering or Computing, this means studying for a Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) or Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree at either ordinary or honours level.
All undergraduate degree programmes in Engineering are now fully accredited with the appropriate Engineering Institute in the UK - the IET, IMechE or The Royal Society of Aeronautical Engineers.
The normal full time study duration for an undergraduate degree is three years. However, this can be shortened as we will take into account your previous study and qualifications to give you exemption from the first year and possibly second year of study. Please see our full list of taught undergraduate courses in Engineering and Computing.
