Introduction to Engineering (Mechanical with Business Finance) MEng
The Engineering (Mechanical with Business Finance) MEng is a challenging four-year programme designed to produce Mechanical Engineering graduates with a well-rounded 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.
Applying for the MEng rather than the three-year BEng allows you to fulfil the educational requirements for Chartered Engineer status, with a single qualification.
Integrated Engineering Programme
You will study Mechanical Engineering (with Business Finance) in the context of our Integrated Engineering Programme giving you the opportunity to:
- tackle practical engineering challenges throughout your programme
- develop transferable professional skills
- tailor your programme to your interests
- study and collaborate with students in other engineering disciplines
Watch this IET video to learn more.
Mechanical Engineering is a broad discipline which can lead you to pursue many different career paths. On completing your degree programme, you can choose from a variety of fields including:
- motor vehicle design
- marine engineering
- medical engineering
The problem-solving, analytical skills you develop at UCL Mechanical Engineering, alongside your understanding of economics, accounting and business, will make you an attractive candidate for employers in many other fields. These include commerce, banking, and management consultancy.

Engineering (Mechanical with Business Finance) MEng 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.
