MET is an option for the final two years of the Cambridge Engineering degree that develops and applies engineering knowledge in a business context.

The course prepares students to be leaders of business and technology firms. It provides a thorough grounding in management and manufacturing technologies, together with an understanding of the full range of industrial activities: from product design, component manufacture, industrial engineering, factory and business management through to how firms work in the economy. A core message throughout the programme is to understand how firms can grow sustainably.


MET is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the Institution of Mechanical Engineering (IMechE).
