Course summary

Civil engineers play a key role in planning, designing, constructing and maintaining the physical environment around us, including buildings and structures, flood defences and water supply programmes.Our Civil 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.The added advantage of this MEng Civil 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.This MEng degree offers you a quicker, more direct route to Chartered Engineer status than the three-year BEng.You will develop a thorough understanding of civil engineering theory, which will be backed up by practical application through laboratory and research work, field courses and design classes, enabling you to develop your career in any area of the civil engineering industry.The MEng allows you to use the last two years to expand and strengthen your knowledge in civil 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.The MEng degree is fully accredited by the Institutions of Civil and Structural Engineers and satisfies the educational requirements to become a Chartered Engineer (CEng).Other Cardiff University Civil Engineering courses include:•A thorough grounding in the fundamentals of civil engineering if you choose a BEng course•The opportunity to follow a sandwich year in industry if you choose the relevant four-year BEng or five-year MEng degree option•The opportunity to study abroad at a partner institution for one semester if you choose the relevant MEng (International) degree optionDistinctive featuresThe distinctive features of the course include:•Fast-track route to Chartered Engineer status•The opportunity to study at the highest-rated civil engineering school in the UK for our research, and the impact of our research (according to the 2014 Research Excellence Framework)•The facilities that come with such a successful research unit•The opportunity to learn from leaders in their fields, through direct access to academic staff, many of whom are Chartered Engineers or have worked in industry•An open and engaging culture between students and staff•The opportunity to improve your French language skills•A year spent studying at a French university
