Engineering (Electronic and Electrical) MEng

This four-year programme provides a thorough coverage of the theory, devices and systems that underpin much of the technology that you are familiar with today in this high-tech society.

To find out core information about this degree, such as entry requirements, programme length and cost, visit the UCL prospectus site.

We also give MEng students the option to partly specialise in their 3rd and 4th year. In addition to our standard MEng programme we currently offer MEng Engineering (Electronic and Electrical) programmes with one of Communications, Computer Science, Nanotechnology, or our International Programme (year abroad). These different routes can only be selected during your second year at UCL, not through UCAS.
