    Progression to an MEng is typically conditional on getting a 2.1 in your second year of the BEng. Moving between the two is generally very flexible as long as you keep your grades solid.

    If you decide to do a BEng you probably would not be able to move on to the MEng for the fourth year because the structure of the 3rd year will have been different. You would however be able to do a different MSc course at Imperial or elsewhere as long as you did well in the BEng. Since you are an international student the costs will be pretty much the same to you whatever you do.
    Well, I'm planning on doing the MSc (btw what does this stand for?) for the "sustainable energy futures" program, since I want to study renewable energy. Would it be to my advantage to do the MEng, then take the MSc for sustainable energy or just do the BEng and then MSc?

    Thanks

    Meng and Msc are the same thing really. Beng -> Msc is a better option or otherwise you will just be repeating a year in some sense.

    MSc stands for Master of Science. The difference is that an MSc is a separate degree not linked to your undergraduate degree and might also often be more specialised than the MEng. In general I think doing the MEng and the MSc would be pretty redundant, but one thing to check is whether you would get accreditation by engineering institutes (in Canada , the UK or wherever else you might want to work), with the BEng+MSc option. Accreditation with an MEng is automatic, BEng+MSc is slightly more complicated but I'd be very surprised if you ran into any problems with that combination. I'm sure Imperial can help you with figuring that out.

    I think I will do the BEng first then the MSc, since someone did mention that I would be doing more of the same thing...and I don't want that.
