    Hi,

    What do you mean by "upgrade" exactly? Quite often, BEng and BSc can be fairly synonymous. Some institutions will prefer to award Eng degrees (very common in the UK) whilst others will prefer to award Sc degrees (common in the US). One is not necessarily higher than the other, but you should look at the course content of your BSc degree compared to a BEng course, that way you can see where the differences lay.

    From what I've noticed, Sc degrees can sometimes be more research orientated, whilst Eng degrees can be more industry related. This will all change from place to place, though.

    In terms of furthering education or entering industry, applying with a BSc shouldn't make any difference if it's a typical 3-4 year degree.

    Hope this helps,
