Our Civil and Environmental Engineering programme offers you a highly regarded degree course at one of the top universities in this field, preparing you for exciting future career opportunities in designing and working with the built and natural environments.

You will develop a thorough understanding of civil and environmental engineering theory, which will be backed up by practical application through laboratory and research work, field trips and design classes.

The added advantage of this MEng Civil and Environmental 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.

Choosing the MEng degree offers you a quicker, more direct route to Chartered Engineer status than the shorter BEng and it has therefore become the preferred route for this.

The MEng allows you to use years three and five to expand and strengthen your knowledge in civil and environmental engineering. 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.
