Professional Body Accreditation
The MEng in Computing is accredited by the British Computer Society, and allows graduates to join immediately as professional members. In addition, the MEng in Computing is accredited for Chartered Engineer (CEng) status by the British Computer Society. This means after a few years of industrial experience, you can apply to become a Chartered Engineer. To do the same with a BSc degree you would need to study for the full-time equivalent of one year (typically actually undertaken part-time) after your degree.
Our career support services include:
- Employability workshops, employers’ talks, bespoke events and careers fairs
- Individual advice and guidance from professionally qualified Careers Advisers
- Help with finding jobs, internships, work placements and volunteering opportunities
- Access to information resources on a wide range of career management topics

Studying abroad is a great opportunity to experience another culture, make friends from around the world and gain valuable experience to prepare you for the world of work after you complete your studies.
