More About The University Of Edinburgh

Engineers create innovative solutions to real-world problems. We invent products, systems and processes that are faster, smaller, cleaner, safer, stronger, more efficient, more environmentally friendly, more economical, more sustainable and more marketable.

Engineering is all around us, making up much of what we take for granted - telecommunications, transport, energy generation and distribution, buildings, bridges, water supply, materials, fuels and much more.

Engineering at Edinburgh has a long and distinguished history and enjoys a vibrant and successful present. Our graduates have a distinctive blend of technical skills, ingenuity and entrepreneurship, that can open the door to a rewarding career.


Disciplines

Your programme will draw material from one, or more, of our four disciplines:

  • Chemical engineering
  • Civil and environmental engineering
  • Electronics and electrical engineering
  • Mechanical engineering

Our programmes cross the traditional engineering boundaries through cross-disciplinary design projects and teaching, in recognition of the multidisciplinary nature of modern engineering projects.

You can keep your options open between these disciplines by applying for H100 Engineering. In Year 1 you will study a general engineering course that covers all four teaching areas. You must follow at least two of these, but can elect to study three or four if you wish. The route provides an insight into engineering as a whole, and helps you focus in on areas of particular interest. On completion of the first semester, you will discuss your options with your personal tutor, and transfer to one of the programmes offered by the School of Engineering. All programmes, with the exception of Structural Engineering with Architecture, are available through this route.

Suitably qualified students may opt to apply for direct entry to Year 2, in which case flexibility is reduced, but the length of study is the same as a comparable degree in the rest of the UK. Note that H100 and Structural Engineering with Architecture are not available to students applying for direct entry to Year 2.

Accreditation

All our MEng programmes are accredited as fully satisfying the educational base for a Chartered Engineer (CEng).

All of our BEng programmes are accredited as partially satisfying the educational base for a Chartered Engineer (CEng). An accredited programme is needed to complete the CEng educational base.
