Engineering with Finance MSc

This new MSc programme builds on the success of our undergraduate Engineering with Business Finance programme and is designed to give graduates with a first degree in a relevant numerate subject the engineering, management and finance knowledge and skills necessary to work in engineering projects, business and finance.

Degree summary

What will I learn?

Core engineering content concentrates on areas of new and emerging technologies, and on global challenges such as sustainability and energy demand. This is combined with courses in project management, financial markets and institutions, risks and regulation. Students undertake two engineering projects (a group project and an individual project) which integrate the knowledge acquired through the taught modules.

Why should I study this degree at UCL?

UCL Mechanical Engineering is a dynamic and vibrant place to study and do research. Located in central London it was the first mechanical engineering department in the UK. It has a long reputation for internationally leading research funded by numerous organisations and industry, and quality teaching.

The department benefits from state-of-the-art facilities and close links with industry, and has access to expertise in other disciplines, including engineering and management sciences within UCL.
