Heriot-Watt University has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
BEng Engineering is a one year programme designed to act as a route for students who wish to defer making a choice about a specialised engineering discipline. Students select eight courses from two or three engineering disciplines. At the end of Level 1, BEng Engineers transfer to Level 2 of their chosen programme. The aim of this programme is to enable students to sample a range of engineering disciplines before choosing their degree profile.
