Your broad knowledge of various aspects of engineering will ensure you can interact with engineers from all the traditional engineering disciplines in any multidisciplinary environment.You will also become familiar with the role of engineering within the business environment, as particular attention is paid to economics, management and law.

Choosing the MEng degree offers you a quicker, more direct route to Chartered Engineer status than the shorter BEng. It allows you to use years three and five to expand and strengthen your knowledge. You will benefit from advanced learning in design and management and an appreciation of the techniques needed to manage and organise a multidisciplinary engineering design project.

An added advantage of this MEng Integrated Engineering course with a year in Spain is that you study the Spanish language as part of the first three years and spend year four studying engineering at a partner university abroad before returning to Cardiff for the fifth year.
