    Hey guys I'm on my third year of an MEng in mech eng.

    Right now I'm considering doing a one year MSc in Sweden (no fees) in addition to my masters. Most likely in innovation management or similar.

    How much value do you think this gives me? Bear in mind it'd be a one year masters.

    What about a two year masters? Maybe tu delft in policy analysis.

    Not too sure. I've already got experience working in government science (physical police science like riot shields) and in broadcast engineering (writing business proposals) and applying technical knowledge.

    However I don't think I wish to take up a purely technical role. I'm interested I'm business orientated roles in engineering and technology related field.

    If you do not seek to go into a purely technical role then I don't think the MEng is of much value.

    Hm, I would do the MEng, because it is only one additional year and unless you already have siginificant work experience, you might want to get back after some time. In addition I could imagine as you mentioned public policy, the more degrees and higher degrees you have, the easier it get's in that field, as it is can be quite competitive and you can use the additional time at uni to get a bit of a specialisation, especially, if you not plan on working in an engineering role.

    As you seem pretty undecided (Innovation Management or public policy?), I think, maybe get more work experience and then do a Master tailored down to the field you actually want to work in. As you seek a Master getting you on-top qualification, I think that is the easier way.
