This page is an introduction to this degree programme
This programme is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) on behalf of the Engineering Council for the purposes of fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer for the 2014 -2021 student cohort intake.
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 this MEng allows you to fulfil the educational requirements for Chartered Engineer status with a single qualification.
You will study Mechanical Engineering (with Business Finance) in the context of our Integrated Engineering Programme, giving you the opportunity to:

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:
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.
Dr Manish K Tiwari
Lecturer, UCL Mechanical Engineering
The MEng EBF degree programmes is comprised 75% of the corresponding MEng degree programme 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.
Mechanical Engineering is a broad discipline requiring you to study a range of areas from mathematical modelling to material science. The module descriptions for this degree programme will give you a more detailed understanding of what you will study at UCL. These include some business modules taught by UCL School of Management
Please note that there are some changes pending for this degree programme, primarily around the order in which modules are taken. If you have any queries, please contact us a firstname.lastname@example.org
