Engineering explained

Discover the different types of engineering courses available to study at the University of Greenwich. Explore a wide range of careers in engineering.

Our subjects

Most of our engineering disciplines offer a four-year course which leads to an Integrated Master's degree and an 'extended' degree which includes a foundation year to prepare you for degree-level study.

Chemical engineering degrees

Study in specialist laboratory facilities at our Medway Campus where you’ll gain the skills and knowledge you need to become a professional chemical engineer, using the latest equipment and simulation software.

Civil engineering degrees

Discover pioneering approaches in specialist laboratory facilities on our Medway Campus, where you will use the latest surveying equipment and learn how to apply them in real-world scenarios.

Computer engineering and cybernetics degrees

These pioneering degrees combine technical engineering with an impressive depth of computer theory. You'll gain the specialist knowledge and skills needed to work in this cutting-edge industry.

Construction degrees

Our range of courses, some of which are professionally accredited, will give you the skills and knowledge you need to start, or develop, your career.

Electrical and electronic engineering degrees

Learn how to make the world a better, more connected place. You will study in specialist lab facilities on our Medway Campus and benefit from our close ties with engineering companies such as BAE Systems and Ford.

Engineering management degrees

Combine solid technical skills in engineering with business enterprise management skills. Studying on our Medway Campus, you will benefit from specialist and integrated lab facilities.

Engineering technology degrees

Learn how to apply engineering to a range of real-world problems. Studying on our Medway Campus, you will develop the skills and knowledge you need to drive changes in product design using the latest technological advances.

Mechanical engineering degrees

This is one of the broadest areas of engineering. You will learn about the design, construction and operation of mechanical systems. Studying at our Medway Campus, you’ll benefit from our strong links with local industry.

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 active student-led societies offer a space for personal and academic growth, as well as new opportunities to make lasting friendships. Students can take part in activities throughout the year, both through the department and via the wider Students’ Union.

Take a Virtual Tour

Our virtual tours are a great way to get a feel for where you'll be studying. Explore the facilities we have on offer below.

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

Dr Wim Melis is working on technology that could significantly improve sound quality for hearing implant users.

Join us as a research student

Graduates from our undergraduate forensic science courses can move on to our MRes degree. Normally, you will need a 2.1 or First. If you have a suitable research proposal in engineering, we can help you apply to the university and find the appropriate supervisor.
