Course summary

The complexity and sophistication of modern engineering requires a multidisciplinary approach. Industry is therefore seeking engineers with broad knowledge and skilled in more than one of the traditional engineering disciplines. The Integrated Engineering degree embraces many aspects of electrical, electronic, mechanical and manufacturing engineering. By completing this course you will qualify as an engineer of the highest quality: 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 four-year MEng degree offers you a quicker, more direct route to Chartered Engineer status than the three-year BEng. The final two years look 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 (International) course is that one semester is spent studying engineering through the medium of English in a partner university overseas. There are currently more than 65 destination universities on four continents.This course includes the opportunity to take a year of industrial placement between your second and third years of academic study. With this option we will support you in finding a placement that will allow you to experience at first- hand, a professional working environment. If you are successful in securing a placement you will be paid a salary and will enhance your employability skills through direct experience of working in business, industry or the public sector.Other Cardiff University Integrated Engineering courses available may include:•A thorough grounding in the fundamentals of engineering if you choose a BEng course•The opportunity to study a language if you choose the relevant MEng degree option with a sandwich year at a university in France, Germany or SpainDistinctive featuresThe distinctive features of the course include:•Fast-track route to Chartered Engineer status•The integrated course, which draws on modules taught across the School, benefit from the ‘Excellent’ teaching rating achieved by the School•The facilities that come with 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•Some external scholarships may be available from the UK Power Academy and UK Electronic Skills Foundation UKESF (Cardiff is a member of both schemes)•One semester is spent studying abroad•The opportunity to follow a sandwich year in industry
