Graduates take a quicker, more direct route to Chartered Engineer status than the BEng students.
External scholarships available
Students are eligible to apply for external scholarships from the UK Power Academy and UK Electronic Skills Foundation UKESF (Cardiff University is a member of both schemes).
Our course content is informed by industrial collaboration and delivered by leading academic staff, many of whom are Chartered Engineers or have worked in industry.
Professionally accredited course
Accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers on behalf of the Engineering Council for the purposes of fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer.
The complexity and sophistication of modern engineering requires a multidisciplinary approach. Industry is therefore seeking engineers with broad knowledge and skills in more than one of the traditional engineering disciplines.
The MEng Integrated Engineering with Year in Europe (France) is a multidisciplinary degree built around electrical, electronic, and mechanical engineering, which aims to produce experts in the areas of manufacturing, mechatronics, computer-aided design, and renewable energy. 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 France is that you study the French 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.
