    Hi, i am currently in the process of applying to university via UCAS.

    I have came across something of which i am not sure about.

    I am wanting to do a course which after completion of the BEng i can do Meng. Now. This is the options i get:

    BEng Civil Engineering
    BEng Civil Engineering and Management
    MEng Civil Engineering Design and Management

    I want to do design and management, but, will that include the BEng, i e, i dont want to accidently apply only for the MEng...?

    so if i choose the last one will it be BEng for 4 years then MEng?

    Not in Scotland they're not. BEng is 4 years and MEng is 5 years.

    Oh yeah, forgot this was posted in the Scottish Qualifications part.

    Is the OP wanting to do a BEng (undergraduate) and then a MSc (postgraduate)? MEng combines them both. (Err, assuming Scotland works the same system)

    The first two years are normally identical on a MEng and BEng course with the former being a requisite course for meeting the academic requirement to chartership. If you are intent on an Engineering career then the MEng is the best choice.

    Most Universities are flexibile in that you can transfer from one to the other after two/three years. So your commitment to either the 3 or 4 (4 or 5 in Scotland) year course should not be set in stone so to speak.

    After that I'm not exactly sure what you are asking. so forgive me.

    I think your question is 'if I apply for the MEng course, will I get a BEng as well?' The answer is 'no, but it doesn't matter since it's an integrated course and the MEng supersedes the BEng'. It's not an unusual arrangement. You will not be accidentally applying for a 1 year postgrad MEng, if that's what you were worried about.
