Course summary

Mechanical engineers are essential to the workings of the modern world, combining imagination and technology to offer innovative solutions across society and industry. They work across all industrial sectors, developing and manufacturing well-designed products through efficient manufacturing processes.Choosing the MEng programme offers you a quicker, more direct route to Chartered Engineer status than the three-year BEng. It allows you to use years three and five to expand and strengthen your knowledge in mechanical 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.An added advantage of this course 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.Other Cardiff University Mechanical Engineering courses include:A thorough grounding in the fundamentals of mechanical engineering if you choose a BEng courseThe opportunity to follow a sandwich year in industry if you choose the relevant four-year BEng or five-year MEng degree optionThe 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 statusThe opportunity to learn in a research-led teaching institution served by staff rated highly in the last Research Excellence FrameworkThe facilities that come with a successful research unitThe opportunity to learn from leaders in their fields, through direct access to academic staff, many of whom are Chartered Engineers or have worked in industryAccreditation from the Institution of Mechanical EngineersThe opportunity to participate in the design, development, construction, testing and competition of a proven Formula Student racing carAn open and engaging culture between students and staffThe opportunity to improve your French language skillsA year spent studying at a French university
