The MEng Computing (International Programme of Study) allows you to develop your linguistic and technical skills through a programme of engineering study in the UK and abroad at a participating institution.
Because all our courses have a two-year common study period, you may transfer between courses, within the Computing Integrated Engineering Study Scheme, at any time within that period - all students will initially be registered on the MEng Computing course.
This means that you can change your mind about the year abroad until the beginning of your third year.
All our MEng degree programmes include a compulsory 6 month (4 months for JMC) remunerated placement in industry that can be abroad.
Students following the MEng Computing (International Programme of Study) spend their entire fourth year abroad in a recognised institution of higher education (with which Imperial College has an exchange arrangement). Current participating Erasmus exchange institutions are: France - ENSIMAG (INP Grenoble); Germany - RWTH-Aachen; Switzerland - ETH Zurich. This exchange takes place after the Industrial Placement.
Alternatively, there is a limited possibility for an exchange with the USA (currently University of California, from 2019 also MIT) where MEng students spend the first two terms of their third year abroad. This exchange takes place before the Industrial Placement.
- A strong academic record
- A good knowledge of the language spoken at the host institution (your thesis will be written in English).
