Hi

Im currently doing HND in Mechanical Engineering (90% distinction) and have HNC in general engineering (100% distinction). I've started to look at unis and applying this Sept, but confused on couple things.

I've noticed Unis and colleges doing 3rd year top up BSc Mechanical Engineering and several unis saying could enter on year 2 with HND what im doing.
I know i def to want to proceed further after Degree to MSc or maybe even futhure to Phd/EngD (its my goal), I know prob cant do Meng, but was wonder and confused on the BSc and Beng

Is there much difference between the two?
If wanting to progress onto MSc does it make much difference?
Would HNC in general engineering and HND in mechanical disadvantage me going on to course? (the course have been independent research heavy and practical. I love the research and practical side its what im good at love, exam not so much),
If i did BSc would be able to do proper engineering, even with MSc like i would with Beng. would it be looked as lesser employable?

I personally think that they are almost identical degrees, Beng & Bsc, bachelor of engineering or bachelor of science

you could do either, from the great start of your Higher National Diploma, choose where you want to go, and exactly which individual course modules are more interesting to you, CNC, CAD/CAM, 3-D sintering, playing with lasers, robots, AI/ML, ..... choose the first degree - then choose where to do your masters later on , during your bachelor course - you might wish to go somewhere else, or you might wish to stay where you are , if you love the place and the teaching
