Information for future students

The James Watt School of Engineering offers cutting edge, research informed learning that will help you develop the skills and experience to solve national and global societal problems using engineering ingenuity and creativity.

As a large research-intensive school we offer a diverse portfolio of programmes across most engineering disciplines. Our programmes are fully accredited by professional bodies and are delivered under the auspices of our five teaching disciplines, each of which is led by a Head of Discipline.

Our extended curriculum in Scotland, which is typically one year longer, enables students on our MEng degree programme to undertake an extensive individual project (all of Semester 1) in their chosen discipline which is not typical elsewhere in the UK. This project may be taken in industry, at international universities or within the world-leading research laboratories at Glasgow.

Graduates from Glasgow are in high demand.  The latest HESA Graduate Outcomes data, a survey of graduates 15 months post graduation, indicates that more than 90% of first degree, full-time, UK domiciled graduates from 2020 are in professional employment [TimesST Professional Rate].
