The information below summarises our selection process for those interested in applying for October 2018 entry. 

For more detailed information, please see our Applicant FAQ.

All applications for the MEng must be made solely through UCAS, and we are unable to accept any additional personal statements alongside these applications.

We welcome applications from students from a wide variety of academic backgrounds, provided they have achieved a high level in mathematics (A at A-Level or equivalent) and applicants with either sciences or arts qualifications are eligible for the course.

UCAS personal statements will be assessed for evidence that applicants have an aptitude and interest in developing both their fundamental design engineering and creativity skills and in applying these skills in combination to generate new products, systems or services through their projects. Previous coursework, academic studies, personal projects, and work experience may all be relevant, depending upon the applicant. 

All selected applicants will be invited to one of our interview days running Nov - Feb (in exceptional circumstances, candidates unable to attend an interview day may be offered alternative interview arrangements).

Interview days

Candidates invited to one of our interview days  are welcome to bring a guest, by arrangement upon invitation. These interview days will allow candidates to find out more about our MEng programme and Imperial College.

Each candidate completes a 25-minute interview during the interview day in which their interest and aptitude will be assessed with a range of questions and problems. Candidates may present an example of their work in interview, but this is not required and candidates should not bring a full portfolio.
