Engineer your future

Engineering is heading in a new direction and it needs creative thinkers and innovators.

As an engineer, you can bring your ideas to life and help work on some of the World’s biggest challenges. From developing cutting edge medical scanners and lifesaving drugs to finding sustainable solutions to energy supply issues and designing new technology.

Canterbury Christ Church offers engineering degrees for creative thinkers and innovators with different experience and abilities.


There are a range of degree courses available to undergraduates, giving students the opportunity to specialise in a certain engineering discipline.

BEng with Foundation Year

This four-year course starts with the Foundation Year, which helps students build their engineering skills and knowledge while preparing themselves for a particular engineering degree.

At the end of the Foundation Year, students will continue with their selected BEng (Bachelor of Engineering) course and be on track to become an Incorporated Engineer (IEng).


The three-year Bachelor of Engineering courses will unlock the individuals full potential as a creative problem solver. The learning and teaching takes a hands-on approach for typically 50% of the course, so students can become work engineers by the time they graduate.

On completion of the BEng (Bachelor of Engineering), students will be on track to become Incorporated Engineers (IEng).


The four-year Master of Engineering courses will advance students engineering talents further and develop their leadership and management skills.

On completion of the MEng (Master of Engineering), students will be on track to become a Chartered Engineer (CEng).
