The MEng allows you to study your areas of interest in more depth and also gives you the time to widen your knowledge of both electrical and electronic engineering and other subjects including management. This degree leads more directly to Chartered Engineer status and it is the choice programme for a career in engineering management. The first two years of the MEng and BEng programmes are identical and there is some flexibility to allow switching between programmes, although a higher academic performance is expected for the MEng. In the third year you study core subjects including analogue and digital communications, embedded computer architecture and total quality management. In the final year the core subjects are advanced signal processing, information theory and coding, management of design and management of product development. This programme is available with a Year in China. The Year in China allows undergraduate students the opportunity to spend one year at our joint venture, Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU), following XJTLU's BA China Studies degree classes. XJTLU is a fully English-speaking university, located in Suzhou. If you wish to study this programme with a Year in China please put the option code YC in the Further Choices section of your UCAS application form.
