What is an integrated master’s (MEng) programme?
The MEng in Civil and transportation Engineering is an integrated master's degree. This means that it combines undergraduate and postgraduate study into a single course.
What are the benefits of completing an MEng degree?
You will graduate with a Master’s level degree without having to apply for an MSc course
You will gain a depth of specialist knowledge and experience highly sought after by employers
You will be able to undertake the Initial Professional Development (on-the-job training) required to become a Chartered Engineer as soon as you graduate
You will enjoy excellent career prospects and expect to command higher salaries than graduates with a BEng
What financial support is available to MEng students?
You will be eligible to apply for the same financial support as other undergraduates for the duration of your MEng.

This financial support is not available to students who enrol on an MSc degree after completing a BEng programme. Furthermore, if you are awarded an LJMU scholarship – worth £1,000 or £10,000 – you will receive this award for every year of your degree as well.
