    I don't know anything about credits, but both are masters level qualifications and are equivalent to each other.
    Strictly, they aren't equivalent according to the Bologna Process, BUT yes, for engineering purposes that's an, ahem, academic difference and not relevant.

    Edit: corrected Protocol to Process.

    there is no such thing as Bologna Protocol

    I suppose you mean Bologna Process

    and where does Bologna Process specify the difference between MSc and MEng?

    My bad - Bologna Process it is.

    Interesting point about MSc and Bologna... http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/services/a...y/faq/bologna/

    "The whole thing is inconsistent and imprecise, to say the least."

    It's an academic problem. In the real world the MEng is there to do a job - it provides the leaning needed for Charter Status. Same as a BEng+MSc. Job done...
