Engineering (Mechanical with Business Finance) BEng
3 year BEng Honours Degree
Short title: BEng/EBF
The Engineering with Business Finance (EBF) degree programmes which UCL offers are designed to produce engineering graduates with a well-founded understanding of economics, accounting and business practice. These skills are precisely those required by industry for graduates likely to be given significant managerial responsibility at an early stage in their career. The degree programmes also include significant elements of computing and management studies. Although not the primary objective, the programmes are also proving successful in training graduates for employment in the fields of commerce, banking and management consultancy. So often in the past, graduates employed in these areas have been ignorant of technology. This has been a major disadvantage as a large proportion of investments and management decisions involve buying or using technological products or knowledge. Graduates with an EBF degree have the ideal training to make or to advise on these decisions.
Obtaining Chartered Status
The MEng degree programme in EBF includes all the elements required by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) to allow graduates to obtain chartered status and become full members of the IMechE, once they have completed their practical training in industry. The first two years of study of the BEng programme are similar to the MEng degree programme, but the shorter BEng degree does not allow such breadth and depth of study. It follows that students wishing to attain chartered status would have to undergo a further year of study, most usually on an approved specialist MSc degree programme.

This shows the degree structure confirmed for 2013-14. We are continually updating and improving our programmes so the content for 2014-15 may differ. The degree programmes are organised on a course-unit basis, with 4 units taken in each year. These 4 units are achieved by a combination of lectures, tutorials, seminars, project work, design studies, practical computer work and laboratory experiments.

The MEng and BEng EBF degree programmes are comprised 75% of the corresponding MEng and BEng degree programmes in Mechanical Engineering combined with 25% of economics, accounting, and business practice. The engineering subjects included in the first two years concentrate on fundamental theories. The third and fourth years develop skills in applying the fundamental knowledge through project work and design assignments, while at the same time allowing students to choose topics that interest them and to study them in some depth.
