Why study engineering at the University of Surrey?

The home of some of the world’s greatest engineers – from George Stephenson (inventor of the public railway) to Tim Berners-Lee (the world-wide web) – the UK has a long tradition of engineering, and offers qualifications that are recognised throughout the world.

Enabling you to gain a deep insight into a specialised field by studying in a research-focused institution with close links to industry, a Masters qualification from the University of Surrey gives you a significant advantage in your future career. 

The University of Surrey is at the forefront of international research in many areas of engineering, hosting world-renowned research centres such as:

The University has a strong ethos of working closely with industry and recently entered a formal partnership with the National Physical Laboratory (NPL), the UK’s national measurement institute, which will underpin research projects in fields from advanced manufacturing to healthcare.
