Course options

Most of our courses allow you to choose between a three-year Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) or a four-year Masters of Engineering (MEng). The MEng course gives you the opportunity to gain a Masters level qualification and challenges you to study your subject to a deeper level.

All of our courses are available with a year in industry, which gives you the opportunity to gain vital experience in the workplace and find out more about your career options. You can also spend a year abroad as part of your degree.

Our Electronic Engineering with a Foundation Year (BEng) and Music Technology Systems with a Foundation Year (BEng) courses offer a route into engineering if you have potential but you're missing required qualifications.

Visiting students

If you're studying at a university outside the UK, you may be able to spend up to a year in York as a visiting student.
