What is the difference between an MEng and a BEng (Hons) degree?
An MEng (Master of Engineering) is taken over four years - or five with a placement year - and is the integrated masters route for engineering students. The MEng follows the same structure as the BEng (Batchelor of Engineering) degree for the first three years, but the fourth year enables you to broaden your skills and knowledge beyond undergraduate level, increasing your employability.
Will the university help me to find work experience and industry placements?
Whilst students are responsible for securing their own work experience and industry placements, our tutors will guide and support you through the process. Industry experience not only enables you to apply your knowledge in real-world situations but allows you to form those vital connections early on in your career. We have links with a range of leading organisations and, where possible, will assist students in securing placements.
What career options are open to me once I graduate?
From civil engineer to construction specialist to structural engineer, alumni from our civil engineering programmes are currently working in a wide range of roles in industry. Hear from BEng (Hons) Civil and Architectural Engineering graduate Maryam, and BEng (Hons) Civil Engineering graduate Haroon about their experiences at Salford and what they have been working on since they graduated.
Will there be opportunities for individual support if I find need it from time to time?
As well as the usual support you would expect from the lecturers on your course, we also offer extra help if you are stuck solving a particular maths problem. This is a drop-in session called MathScope where you can turn up without an appointment.
