Course summary

If you are curious about how things work and have a keen mind for applying what you learn to solve real-world problems, engineering is the perfect career for you. In this degree you will study principles from across a range of Engineering disciplines and interactions between systems, enabling you to work at the boundaries of complex problems. This course is accredited by the IET, and IMechE and InstMC. More information is available on the School of Engineering website. Systems Engineering is an interdisciplinary approach that enables the realisation of complex systems. Many complex engineering products (such as aerospace and automotive) involve a high level of integration and interaction across the mechanical, electronic and software domains. Systems Engineers analyse and design the behaviour of these systems including active and intelligent software, which allows systems to detect and respond to changes. A Systems Engineer needs to understand the broader context of a system including people, processes, and information flow. The Systems Thinking approach that will be gained from this course equips engineers to work on holistic problems where there are conflicting needs and complex interactions. Recent projects include the creating of a gesture detection system which recognises British sign language, and developing a systems model of iron storage in brain disease. By choosing the MEng degree you can explore specialist areas of Systems Engineering through fourth-year core and optional module choices and a group project.

Additional fee information

In line with government policy decisions, Home undergraduate tuition fees for the 2024/25 academic year are £9,250. For students who qualify for government-regulated fees (currently students classed as ‘Home’ for fees purposes), the University expects to increase fees in line with any inflationary uplift as determined by the UK Government, if permitted by law or government policy, in the second and subsequent years of your course. International (including EU) fees vary depending on course. Fee levels have not yet been set for 2024/25 but will be published on our website once confirmed: Students commencing with Warwick Business School on a Foundation Year or undertaking a Graduate Entry Medicine degree (MB ChB) should refer to the following webpage for confirmation of their fees, which may differ from the rates listed above: Please refer to the following link for the latest information on tuition fees:
