2nd Year
MEng General Engineering
I really wanted to study engineering, but I didn’t want to just focus on one field. Then I found out about this course, and I decided to study General Engineering. The thing that I enjoy most about this course is that I can learn things from more than one field of engineering.

The lecturers are helpful, and their teaching is well-paced. The labs are wonderful as I can get a hands-on experience. I hope to put my interdisciplinary skills to good use, though I have not decided what field I will go into in the future. If you already have a field of engineering in mind, but still want to learn about other fields of engineering, consider choosing general engineering.
