Engineering

As an engineering student at our Medway Campus, you will gain a solid foundation in all aspects of engineering. This allows you to choose the area you want to specialise in later in your studies.

Make advances. Study engineering.


Interested in the pursuit of innovation and discovery? We offer a range of engineering courses to suit all industries and interests. Explore the opportunities.

Our courses

All our engineering degrees share a common first year before you go on to specialise in your chosen area of engineering. Most of our engineering disciplines offer a four-year course which leads to a Master’s degree and an 'extended' degree which includes a foundation year.

Spotlight on women in engineering


"I am so proud to be an engineer in a male-dominated area," says Cagla Balaban. Find out more about our graduate, who now works for the university.

  • Having lectures that are joined with other groups of engineers makes Greenwich special.

    - Shivani Aggarwal, BEng Chemical Engineering student

  • Studying Mechanical Engineering at the University of Greenwich has helped me understand product design, thermodynamics material engineering, and mechanical dynamic. In terms of engineering they are one of the leaders in the country.

    - Connor Felstead, Mechanical Engineering graduate

Communities and societies

Our student societies offer a space for personal growth and the chance to make lasting friendships. You can take part in activities through your department and via GK Unions (an alliance between the Universities of Greenwich and Kent). Here's a taste of how you can get involved and how we build connections with the wider community.

Sponsoring swimming excellence


The Faculty of Engineering and Science sponsors a competitive swimming club in Gillingham, helping community swimmers to reach the next level.

Research and partnerships

Research in engineering is focused on achieving improvements to society through tackling important questions. Our research themes include biomedical engineering, handling materials, sustainability, mathematical modelling, future technology and the Internet of Things, and next generation materials.

Supporting the deaf with new technology
