Should I mention the engineering branch I want in my personal statement to Cambridge?

So I have written about CRISPR and my research into tissue engineering etc., in my Personal Statement for Engineering (H100) at Cambridge, which is a 4 year M.Eng program. I am intrested in Bioengineering but might change specialisation (since that is done in 3rd year). Should I mention the branch, or not, since the program is same for all branches?...

If you can specalise in other unis in that area then you can mention it, but you should focus on things that are relevant to all your choices

But since Cambridge has a general course (common till 2nd year and then choosing field), I have explicitly shown my interest in one field. However, I have also mentioned how i got my engineering skills by building a superconductor, and by making electrical wind generator and holographic projecting prism. Will that work?

I expect Cambridge will be used to having PSs focused on a branch if a general course is the only way to study it there
