Engineering (Mechanical with Business Finance) MEng

4 Year MEng Honours Degree

UCAS Codes
Institution: U80 Course: H1NH
Short title: MEng / 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


This degree programme is accredited by the Institution for Mechanical Engineers (IMechE)

The MEng Engineering (Mechanical with Business Finance) fully meets the exemplifying academic benchmark requirements, for registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng).

This shows the degree structure confirmed for 2014-15. We are continually updating and improving our programmes so the content for 2015 onwards may differ. The degree programmes are organised on a course-unit basis, with four units taken in each year. These four units are achieved by a combination of lectures, tutorials, seminars, project work, design studies, practical computer work and laboratory experiments.

Students must take at least one of the MEng-only optional modules, MECHM01P and MECH02P.

Due to timetabling limitations the following restrictions apply on particular combinations of modules:

  • Students may only take ONE module out of: MECHM004, MECHGB08, MSIN3002
  • Students may only take ONE module out of: MECHM007, MECHM009

Please note: The choice of modules maybe constrained by availability and timetabling.

Programme Summary
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.
